I read this book around 1985 at age 11. It was an old blue hard cover, with a picture printed directly onto the canvas-textured cover, from my school's library. I believe the title had something to do with food in it. I believe it would be classified as Science Fiction.
The main character was a boy; he found a cafe with some people who knew something of some portal to another place. I want to remember Chili was something special served at the cafe.
Sorry this is so obscure; I hope I am not mixing up multiple books in my mind. If it seems at all familiar, please offer suggestions!
