Laundry meets dinner at this oddball café-Laundromat hybrid, turning out grilled cheeses and your organic-washed sheets. While your drawers run through a cycle in the drop-off station, post up at the 18-stool, wood-paneled bar for microbeers (Coney Island, Sly Fox), iced coffee on tap or house-made sodas (root beer, raspberry). Griddled sandwiches include Swiss-and-bacon or homey American on Wonder Bread, or make your own variety with mix-and-match loaves (challah, marble) and cheeses (Havarti-dill, mascarpone). And if your melty cheese gets on your shirt, just pass it to a barista-cum-bartender to add to your load.
