Before Alma’s space transforms into a sophisticated dinner restaurant each evening at 5, it’s a charming, family-friendly cafe by day. With its large windows and delectable Carrie Riggs-curated pastries—ahem, caramel banana pudding with honeycomb candy—there’s a lot to enjoy. The crown jewel, seating-wise, is by the bar, where guests get a chance to survey all the action behind the counter. Just look at that absinthe dripper in the back! If their daytime prices don’t entice you, surely the classic coffee and tea fixings, fresh-pressed juices, and toasts will beguile. (Order the ricotta and honey.) Come, and stay a while. After all, Alma is a hotel, too.
