Deli / Bodega

“A great local spot to head to if Precita Park Cafe isn't your jam. Charlie is often there and is one of the friendliest guys you'll ever meet. Great for a quick bite before exploring the city - but also a nice place to for an afternoon with a cup of coffee and a book. They open at 6:30am (30 minutes before Precita Park Cafe) if you're an early bird, but they're closed on Sundays.”
