Nothing could be finer than lunch on the shaded sidewalk terrace fronting this impossibly charming café and gourmet-to-go store. The chopped salad with grilled chicken, roasted vegetables and pesto, the lamb sandwich with caramelized onions on rosemary bread, the brownies . . . we get hungry just thinking about it. Breakfast is swell, too: dreamy bread-pudding french toast, a wonderful salmon hash, perfectly cooked omelets.
