You go to Cafe No Sé for healthy-ish food and a cool setting - it’s in the South Congress Hotel, and the space is big and bright. You’ve probably seen their avocado toast on Instagram, but Cafe No Sé has a lot more to offer that falls in the “kind of healthy” category. We like it best during the first half of the day- for breakfast, lunch, and brunch. Enjoy the good view, and get a side of pancakes with your kale salad.
