Café Midi

Annexed to American Rag and at the rear of Maison Midi (the shop stocked with housewares ranging from Moroccan pillow seats to cheery linen napkins), this very French café with indoor and outdoor seating is open until 5:30 daily. There are loads of omelettes and a stellar list of salads: Caesar with Dover sole and Cajun croutons, fava beans with smoked chicken and feta, endive with orange segments and Gorgonzola. Quiche, onion soup, croque monsieurs and all other manner of sandwiches are part of the deal, too. The service is quick and friendly.
