Local tech guys, their sleeves rolled up, pile in at lunch to pick up tasty Northern Chinese–style sandwiches to bring back to their desks. The white-brick, contemporary space is tiny, but it has a few stools along two counters dressed up with jars of fresh flowers.

By the cash register there might be a basket of tempting homemade green tea butter cookies. And tea drinks have a heavy presence on the beverage list.
