Alternately, keep your drinkable depths dark and inscrutable with a plain coffee or hot tea ($2.25 each). For a fizzy, cool option, try an Italian soda ($2.25–$3), and offset the thirst-quencher with a compatible wrap or sandwich ($5 each). The Aegean wrap features Mediterranean-style feta and kalamata olive salsa twined with spinach, hummus, and sun-dried tomatoes, and a sandwich of salami and smoked gouda is an indulgent meatsperience crowned with red peppers, mayo, and mustard, served on a satisfying baguette.
