If you work around Civic Center and really need a break from staring at the same email for the fourth read-over, take a half hour and go to Bi-Rite Cafe right in front of City Hall. This small outpost has a bunch of outdoor seating for when the weather is nice and a menu of things like sandwiches and salads to get you through the rest of the day. We like the barbecue chicken sandwich on a dutch crunch roll, and if it’s been an especially long day, they have soft serve that you can eat while you wait for your lunch.
