Fodor's Expert Review Café Selmarie
For a light meal in Lincoln Square, line up at this bakery-turned-café, a long-standing favorite among locals—especially during warmer months, when the outdoor patio beckons. Breakfast means brioche French toast and vegetarian breakfast sandwiches; lunch ranges from goat cheese salads to turkey-and-Brie sandwiches; and dinner runs to pan-seared salmon and herb-roasted chicken. Don't miss the fabulous pastries (you can also buy them to go at the front counter). Pass summer waits pleasantly in the neighboring plaza; other seasons, you're out in the cold.
