Smile to Go is The Smile’s counter-service baby cousin. This is their second to-go location (the other is in Soho) and all of their pastries are made by the same people as the original cafe so they’re unsurprisingly tasty. This is a useful place for coffee and a quick snack or something more substantial like sandwiches, salads, and larger protein options that you can take outside and eat by the water.
