  • Snacks and Treats
    While the art scene is the area's primary draw, you'll also find plenty of delicious snacks. For a cup of joe that has coffee aficionados swooning, stop by Sweetleaf. The café serves both drip and pour-over coffee (as well as espresso drinks) using beans from Stumptown and Verve. For more exotic beverages and snacks, head over to Rio Bonito Supermercado, where you can get pão de queijo (a Brazilian cheese bun) and other street food to go, along with cashew juice to wash it all down. More seasonally, the LIC Flea & Food sets up on weekends in a lot near the waterfront; stop by to sample bites from local restaurants and artisanal food producers—homemade marshmallows and alcoholic cake pops, anyone?
