Slightly older readers, meanwhile, can stock up on award winners such as Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book, a macabre re-imagining of The Jungle Book. Check out the list of recently released titles, or peruse the shelves to find books for babies (prices vary).

A savory selection of hot paninis ($6.95) begins with your choice of bread base. Try a turkey reuben on focaccia, ciabatta, wheat, marble rye, or baguette. Vegetarians can opt for the mother burger, a veggie-based patty stacked with tomato and lettuce on wheat toast (6.95). Earlier eats at Enzo’s include the hand-held convenience of grilled breakfast burritos ($4), including the roma (scrambled eggs, salami, provolone, hash browns, and spicy tapenade) and the salchicha (sausage, cheddar, and a side of salsa). Snatch up homemade cookies, muffins, brownies, and marshmallow treats to take home and hoard in your sugary-smelling bomb shelter for post-apocalyptic snacking.
