Tartine is home sweet home for West Villagers who flock to this cute corner café on a darling block—and where outsiders inevitably fantasize about buying a townhouse. Its goodness goes beyond looks, with fine baked goods, nice salads, artichoke gratin and thyme-roasted salmon. Brunch is tops, featuring lovely brioche, croque-monsieur and omelets, but allow time to wait for a table—the space is so tiny. It's BYOB, cutting down on the cost. The indoor theme is nautical, crammed with maritime scenes, model schooners and lighthouses; sidewalk seating is all about people watching.
