Owner Tomek Wrzesien set out to create his own gallery in the renovated office space that now houses Urban Standard, but he soon drew inspiration from the café culture of his native Poland and instead met the neighborhood's need for eclectic deli fare, freshly baked goods, and boutique beverages. Breakfast offers a variety of old-world eats in addition to down-home staples such as creamy grits with sausage and cheese ($3). Share a stylish luncheon of salads, sandwiches, or grilled paninis with fancy-pants ingredients such as truffle oil, balsamic jam, and homemade pimento cheese. Carnivores can sink canines into Tomek's Polish Street Sandwich, a cavalcade of cured meats and cheese on ciabatta (half $5.50, whole $8.75), whereas vegetarians can rustle up a grilled marinated-tofu sandwich ($7.50) with a small roasted-fennel and goat-cheese salad ($4.50). If a whole meal seems too daunting, sophisticated snackers can adjust their pince-nez while sampling from a list of baked goods that would make Marie Antoinette blush.

The comfy java haven boasts painstakingly selected, high-quality coffee that is hand-roasted daily to sate the discerning palates of caffeinated, neighborhood libation enthusiasts. Ask a well-versed staff member for suggestions or peruse the percolating menu at your own leisure, alighting upon such organically laden goodies as the classically frothy cappuccino ($3) or the macchiato ($2.50), a tasty amalgamation of steamed milk and espresso. The mocha ($3.50–$4) envelops your taste buds in all its mahogany loveliness, whereas the chai ($3.50–$4), coffee's exotic half cousin, is steeped in black tea and sweet spices. Request your beverage chilled for sweltering days or when you're smuggling a diminutive ice sculpture in your mouth. Bask in drinkable irony with a 12-ounce take-home container of decaf espresso ($11.99), ideal for sipping on the front porch or imbibing during laidback concentration parties.

Those looking to keep their shadows slender can snag the strawberry-cake yogurt, a frozen ambrosia of fruity and saccharine tastes ($0.45 an ounce), which is just one of the many delectable low-fat options available. Yolo also serves coffee and espresso all day to accompany its array of cupcakes, tarts, and sorbets. Customers can personalize most dishes by decorating their chosen sweet with a variety of toppings or by autographing it with a permanent marker.
