Darwin Cafe has lots of bar seats and a few tiny tables, along with a kale salad you’ll actually be thinking about after you leave. The secret may well be in the prosciutto and cheese that come with it, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s still kale. The sandwiches and baguettes here are fresh and flavorful, and the muesli with tons of fresh fruit at brunch is one of the better ways to start your day.
