Heffe is a small taco stand and BYOB in Fishtown with a huge outdoor patio out front where you’ll eat said-tacos. During the winter, you can order everything to-go from the little window, and then run back to wherever you came from as fast as is possible without getting frostbite. But in the summer, you’ll want to stay awhile. There are bright red and yellow picnic tables scattered around the patio, and white string lights that come on when the sun goes down. Order a few tacos (the Almost Pastor is our favorite), bring a six pack, and discuss which bar you’re going to next.
