The words “Colfax Pharmacy” are still printed in big, sky-blue letters on Colfax Greek Bistro’s white-brick façade even though the building, which was built in 1880, is no longer a place to pick up a prescription. Rather, visitors shuffle in to enjoy owner Elan Vitkof’s falafel sandwiches, baklava, greek salads, and gyros made with house-roasted lamb and beef. Classic Greek and Mediterranean dishes are complemented by glasses of Greek wine and beer from Russia, Germany, Greece, Italy, and Belgium. The café-style eatery boasts exposed-brick walls, couches, and live music and dance acts, making it a great place to enjoy a meal and daydream about someday teaching a horse how to play fetch.

They're up before dawn to craft light and airy donuts by hand—from the batter to the creamy icing—for a breakfast so sweet it's hard to believe it's made without trans fats or biodiesel. Donuts come in classic flavors such as glazed and devil's food, as well as in buttermilk and jelly variations. All of them taste even better when dunked into a cup of artisan coffee brewed fresh in-house.
