Lincoln is a local favorite for brunch and pastries. Their classics are what we like most, like huevos rancheros with white beans and a very good avocado cream, and croissants that we’ve ordered by the dozen. Get ready to fight a youth soccer team for a table if you come on a Saturday, but it’s much more low-key on weekdays, where you’ll find a lot of business meetings between people wearing flip-flops, and people with overall deals at Netflix working on their next pilot.
Lincoln is permanently closed.
