SpaHa Café chops culinary cravings off at the knees with a health-minded menu featuring a wealth of fresh sandwiches, light breakfast items, and herbivorous fare.

Daybreak dashers can palm an array of speedy breakfast fare such as bagels— adorned with either cream cheese ($2) or specialty spreads including lox, cinnamon-raisin, or tofu cream cheese ($2.50)—or the delectably flaky ham-and-cheese quiche ($3.95). Midday delights include the fresh prosciutto and mozzarella on ciabatta bread ($3.50–$6.50), while dairy dodgers can enjoy fully vegan fare such as tofu, avocado, and sun-dried tomatoes on multigrain bread ($3.50–$6.50).

- SpaHa cafe is an oasis of fresh cuisine in a desert of fried and fast foods. From the croissants (ham & cheese are delicious) and wraps to the specialty desserts, everything is wonderful and fresh. The iced Jasmine tea had me coming back day after day. And the fruit tarts - fuhgeddaboutit. They are the best and freshest I've had in the city. – Mame M., Yelp, 5/9/09
