Wonderful lunch spot. Grab soup and a salad (and fried-chicken sandwich), and pair with a glass of wine or Fieldwork craft beer. Just a few doors down from Sightglass Coffee and right next door to Trick Dog (best cocktails in the city). They also offer amazing pasta meals to cook at home if you want an easy quiet meal at home after a long day of exploring. The staff also can offer great recommendation for beer or wine to take home if that interest you as well!
