The next time you want to eat something that’s healthy, quick, and not the exact same thing you already had for lunch three times this week, try Baba Cool. This all-day cafe has bowls, toasts, salads, and sandwich options that come with meat like jerk chicken and brisket. There are also a bunch of vegetarian options on the menu and most things cost less than $15. And if you need a break from your couch, you can seat yourself on their huge curbside patio with string lights and white patio tables.
