On any given weekend afternoon, half the people at this West Village cafe will be in workout clothes or PJs. The line will probably be out the door, but it moves fast because most just want something with caffeine. If you don’t get offended by nontraditional BECs, get Merriweather’s version with an over-easy egg, white cheddar, and crispy prosciutto on brioche. It comes with sweet and tangy harissa, along with some avocado and tomato. For lighter fare, you can get things like turmeric ginger oatmeal, grain bowls, and salads.
