Sibling to the News Café sisters, this open-air eatery is the quintessential sidewalk café. Order up some people-watching along with your thick, fluffy quiches, your platter of pté and Brie, your whole-wheat pizza. No matter what you choose from the comprehensive menu, you'll no doubt be amused by the constant Lincoln Road parade. Or take in the live jazz upstairs. Outdoor seating. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
