Buena Vista Deli

If your ideal breakfast involves scrambled eggs, bacon, and Wonder Bread, perhaps it would be best if you did not venture into Buena Vista Deli. But if your perfect first meal of the day involves homemade jelly, fresh breads, madeleines (85 cents), chocolate croissants ($2.50), and chocolate eclairs ($3.95), this neighborhood spot delivers a remarkable French breakfast. In the later hours of the day, Buena Vista Deli also serves casual dinner and lunch -- all under $9. Buena Vista has great sandwiches, salads, and sweets. Flavors are fresh, pastries are flaky, and salads are complex. It's a favorite spot for a tasty lunch or an even better French-style breakfast.
