This buzzing cafe and deli serves juices, waffles, crepes, salads, antipasti plates and specialty sandwiches. On weekends the large plant-trimmed front patio fills with brunching locals and makes a good people-watching perch. There’s also a self-serve bakery with croissants and other goodies, and plenty of other provisions for picnickers.
