The Local Store's neighborhood feel, coupled with a focus on whole grains and locally acquired ingredients, creates a welcoming and savory atmosphere. The morning and midday menu consists of pastries, sweets, and snacks, all freshly baked on the premises without the use of corn syrup, trans fats or other shortcuts cribbed from The Secret World of Alex Mack Companion Cooking Guide. Baked options include the breakfast-y fresh-fruit turnover ($3.50), the snack-y spice cheese straw ($1.50), and the savory-y red-velvet brownie ($3.75), among others. Satisfy a lunchtime urge with a salad ($3–$8) like the spinach and arugula salad, or a sandwich ($3 half, $6 full) such as chicken salad or ham and brie with apple. A full coffee bar provides the liquid partner to the sunny meal. Get a large coffee for $1.50, large latte for $2.75, or large cappuccino for $2.25 to help jumpstart an idle mental motor.
