If you’re looking for a café with regulars, City Bakery has them. Many days at breakfast and lunch, you’ll see the same folks sitting out on the sidewalk enjoying a pastry or cup of coffee. Light breakfasts are great for nibbling while reading the paper, and lunch sandwiches and paninis served on artisan bread are great to grab on the go or to enjoy in the dining room.
