Café Hibi takes its cues from Japan, where its owner was an exchange student. The simple but satisfying café meal changes daily (“Hibi” roughly translates to “every day”) and generally consists of a main with rice, a salad, and a pickled vegetable. The aesthetic also embodies an everyday simplicity, with rough white walls, wooden-frame windows, and worn vintage chairs throughout. The space feels lived in—small dishes, photos, sketches, notes, and tiny pinecones collect on shelves. If they’re selling bottles of milk tea at the counter, get one—you’ll want to take a little bit of Hibi home with you.
