Fodor's Expert Review Café Mersand
For a taste of the best of the local hipster scene, score a table on this eatery's sunny sidewalk. The older customers, some of whom have been coming since the place opened its doors in 1955, mingle unusually well with the younger crowd. Everyone enjoys the specials from the original menu, including the poppy-seed cake and the brownie cheesecake. In the morning, try the Turkish breakfast, which includes couscous, cheese, a hard-boiled egg, and halvah.
