Locals Kendall Bowie and Kyree Gerson have been running this sunny café with mismatched furniture and a bustling open kitchen for five years. Check the board for specials, which often feature local ingredients, or stick with the classics like their “Egg Sammies,” loaded with anything from basic bacon and sausage to crab and horseradish, all served on big, fresh Bolo Levedos—Portuguese-style English muffins direct from Fall River. Bring your own sparkling wine or vodka—staff can provide the rest of the fixins for mimosas or Bloody Marys—as spicy as you like them.
