Thyme is one of those places you’ll visit all the time if you live nearby, but never if you don’t. The salads and sandwiches are all great options for a quick takeout lunch, and their breakfast burrito will do the trick when you’re hungover and don’t want to wait two hours for a trendy brunch spot. In fact, you probably won’t have to wait at all - the bright interior is big and only crowded at peak times. Thyme also doesn’t have wifi, so if you need somewhere to write your screenplay uninterrupted, this is your place. You won’t be alone.
