Abracadabra is a mostly-vegetarian cafe in Williamsburg that looks like it belongs in Joshua Tree. The space is small, but there’s room to sit down - or you can take your food to-go. From the quinoa-filled burritos and Turkish meatballs to veggie burgers with green hummus on top, nothing costs more than $15 - except the feeling that you’ve achieved a higher level of health, which is priceless.
