If the weather is even somewhat nice, there will likely be a line for the coveted outdoor seating at Harper’s Garden. But even if you’re stuck inside, or it happens to be January, the food - which is mostly snacks, small plates, and sandwiches/toasts - is consistently delicious. They also have a late-night Happy Hour from 10pm-12am for when you want to hold on to your table outside for as long as possible.
