Aubergine is a corner cafe in Woodside where you can eat sandwiches, salads, bagels, or pastries at a sidewalk table on Skillman Ave. But unlike most neighborhood spots, this one has cocktail options like nectarine sangria that you can swap out for your usual glass of white. They also have tons of desserts like oreo cheesecake, plus some vegan and vegetarian options available from 8am to 4pm every day except Tuesday.
