PB&J ascends to real-meal status at this skilled patisserie. Match a freshly ground nut butter (from basic peanut to chocolate-hazelnut) with seasonal homemade preserves and oven-fresh bread. Add an impossibly flaky chocolate croissant for dessert, and you’ve got a surprisingly luxe meal for less than $10.

ORDER: Almond butter and caramel apple jam on oatmeal bread, $5.50; chocolate croissant, $3.50
