’Snice is nice—if what you’re looking for is a cozy neighborhood joint where you can enjoy cheap, simple and satisfying vegetarian and vegan fare. Far roomier than it appears from its corner windows, the exposed-brick café has what may well be the largest blackboard menu in the city, covered with carefully wrought descriptions of each burrito, sandwich and salad’s ingredients. Standouts include the quinoa salad with mixed greens and avocado dressing, and the brie, pear and arugula baguette dressed with raspberry mustard. Kids can choose a carrot-cake muffin, frosted cupcake or a half-dozen vegan cookies to accompany their glass of soy milk at the kids' picnic table.
