Elmwood Cafe  2900 College Ave./Russell St.; Elmwood.  In the space formerly occupied by the beloved Ozzie’s Soda Fountain, this more refined cafe serves up a limited menu.  But now diners must usually wait in line to place their order and take a number.  A server delivers to your table everything except coffee drinks, which is a potentially hot-mess of a problem when your drink of choice is a full-to-the-top cafe au lait.  Both a bank of 1920s wood banquettes and cafe tables offer a super view of the street, and sidewalk seating or counter seating on red vinyl-covered swivel stools are also an option.  Hot drinks include cafe au lait in a bowl, lattes, hot chocolate, chai, and apple cider, and cool drinks include fresh-squeezed lemonade and orange juice, seltzer water, and Ozzie’s soda with housemade syrup.  Breakfast choices include a whole-grain waffle, house-made granola, breakfast sandwiches, and a variety of pastries.  Sandwiches and salads join the menu at 11 a.m.
