Paper Or Plastik is a true all-day spot, open from 7am-10pm, which makes it the ideal spot to work or catch up with a friend in an extremely in-between part of town. This cafe has multiple levels, with both quiet corners and busy main sections of the dining room. We like the food best in the daytime, when you can get things like a smoked salmon and avocado tartine, a beer-battered fried chicken sandwich, and a surprisingly good Brussels sprouts and kabocha grain bowl, but the pasta selection at night is solid, too. They've got live music most nights starting at 8pm.
