Go during the day for sandwiches, empanadas, East Side Pies slices, as well as a full complement of your daily veggies in the Bloody Mary, which is really a salad in a glass. It’s a mild-mannered, daytime coffee shop that evolves into a comfortable bar after dark, offering fabulous drinks in a room filled with furniture worthy of any good thrift store score.
