Brooks Reitz and Tim Mink have serious panache when it comes to launching hip new hot spots. Quick on the heels of popular Leon’s Fine Poultry & Oyster Shop, just a block north, this combination coffee shop, grab-n-go breakfast, light lunch café, afternoon tea spot is a basic all-around go-to neighborhood hangout feeds the soul all day long. Whether you’ve come to admire the funky repurposed furniture or original artwork (we love the Douglas Balentine nude above the fireplace), groove to Reitz curated soul/funk playlist, or dig the vintage mismatched plates and silverware, it’s tempting to Instagram the hell out of this place, but don’t overlook the excellence of the food. The menu is tight but focused. Fresh sandwiches and salads pack hidden surprises like the heat of chile oil or the exotic dusting of Middle Eastern spices. Whether you’re swinging through for a baguette and cappuccino, lunching on a hard-boiled egg brioche, pairing your afternoon steeped tea with a walnut pesto mint tartinette, or sipping wine with cheese and charcuterie, this vibrant and eclectic spot with its intimate European café vibe speaks to the inner Parisian-wannabe in us all.—Allston McCrady Dish (Winter 2015)
