Looking for a good cuppa? Gypsy Souls is a popular coffee spot. For a full breakfast menu, Uptown Eats is a great spot – as are legendary Trip’s Diner and Neighborhood Joe.
A titan of the local brunch scene (and also great for dinner), Left Bank Bistro serves up French-inspired fare. Nitally’s offers outstanding Thai-Mexican fusion (curry burritos, anyone?) in a super-cute and festive setting. Across the street, Hook’s is one of the city’s most popular sushi spots (expect crowds on weekends). Next door to Hook’s, duck into the Flamingo for a shot-and-a-beer. The dive bar is said to be the place where Jack Kerouac had his last drink before his 1969 death.
Looking for some house-roasted Guatemalan coffee, a cup of herbal tea or shot of super greens? Find that and much more (melon burrata or sunshine ricotta caprese, anyone?) at the cleverly named Pineapple Espresso, which is drive-thru only. Looking to go classic? Dairy Inn is the locals' favorite for soft serve since 1947.
