If you need a break from the hungry tourists and business lunch-ers swarming Ponce City Market, head to Root Baking Co. This spacious, brightly-lit, all-day cafe and bakery on the second floor has a seasonal menu that changes regularly, though if they have the rotisserie chicken and harissa sandwich (on their freshly baked bread), get it. They also have salads, breakfast toasts, and a weekly pizza takeover called Pizza Jeans Friday.
