The best - and only - time to go to the Original Farmers Market is before 11am. And while there are several decent early morning vendors selling breakfast, Michelina Artisan Boulanger stands out. This French bakery/counter is located in the heart of the market, but when you’re here it still feels like you’re hanging out on a quiet sidewalk cafe. Order anything that catches your eye from the baked good case (the super moist chocolate almond croissant is a favorite), a perfectly-made cappuccino, and the silky Parisienne omelette. Then just grab a seat at the counter, open up a newsletter (JK, your news app), and start your day off right.
