Why go: It’s the morning cafe, bakery, and nighttime lounge everyone wants in the neighborhood—all in a whimsical package that attracts laptoppers, stroller-pushing moms, and anyone else in search of a sugar rush.
What to get: The signature chocolate-and-coffee Buzz cupcake and the cream-filled 9:30 cupcake, a chocolate-lover’s dream; quiche made with cheddar and maple sausage from sister business Red Apron; a panino of thin-sliced meatloaf and Russian dressing; sinful morning brioche with bacon, egg, and cheese; “turtle” cheesecake with chocolate sauce, caramel, and pecans; espresso-jolted farmhouse brownie.
Best for: Wi-fi seekers; weekend family breakfasts; late-night sweets; a date or girls’ night devoted to chocolate and cocktails.
