Born from a beloved farmers’ market stand centered on the humble mushroom, this sunny café exudes feel-good charm. Fill up on simple plates (the best of which incorporate said shrooms), and—since you’ll have cash to spare—walk out with a bag of provisions from the impeccably curated grocery.

ORDER: Fried stuffed mushrooms, $6 for 5; ravioli primavera, $11.99
