Bite Box seems like a typical chill coffee shop at first glance. There’s a Marzocco machine, decorative little tchotchkes your great aunt might own - like a golden balancing scale, stacks of old books, and a statue of Charlie Chaplin - and, of course, WiFi. The only difference is that it smells like a steakhouse instead of espresso beans. And that’s because, in addition to breakfast things like pecan waffles and egg hashes, this cafe makes an incredible burger. It, too, seems typical, with toppings like lettuce and tomato, but then they go and top it with braised oxtail. The whole thing is like eating a burger with pulled pot roast on top, and it should be your next Queen Anne lunch.
