Inspired by the street foods of Rome, this cafeteria-style Italian bakery–café (pronounced "Shoe-eh") starts the day serving espresso and pastries, then moves to panini, soups, and pastas. One specialty is the pane romano, essentially a thick-crust pizza, sold by weight. There can be lines out the door at lunch, so try to visit early or late. (Not too late, as it's open until 6:30 pm on weekdays and 6 pm on Saturday.) If you're in Yaletown, look for the
second location at 126 Davie Street.
