Cheese Plus sounds a little like a bargain basement store for, well, cheese. But once you walk in, you’ll realize this deli is no joke. You’re here for a sandwich (try the Willie Brown Bird, with duck breast, cheese, and fig chutney), but they’ve also got everything you’d need for well-stocked picnic or the apocalypse, whichever comes first. Take a seat outside on a nice day to watch people pass by with dogs who may or may not have better health insurance than you do.
