Citysearch Editorial Review.
With an epicurean husband-wife duo at the reins, this market and café peddles affordably priced, made-to-order meals alongside charming extras like fresh flowers, packaged foods and other trinkets (including wicker baskets). The morning hours bring locals just passing through for their Metropolis coffee fix. Later in the morning, moms meet for a leisurely bite, chatting in the sun-filled front room while they nibble breakfast paninis and feed the irresistible Gooey Monkey--peanut butter, blackberry jam and banana on grilled challah--to their wee ones. Lunchtime sees nearby office-dwellers with a penchant for wholesome sammies--like a sweet-and-savory turkey-and-pear panini topped with Havarti, cranberry and walnuts--and salads chock full of veggies. As the day wares on, folks pop in to peruse the glass bakery cases, grabbing a pastry for a midday pick-me-up.
