Cushman is an early morning place. They only serve food until 3pm.
Their house salad is really good and always fresh, with beet shreds, avocado, and chick peas.
Coffee is great. Can sit for hours and do work. Occasionally gets crowded in the mornings and is better in the afternoon (everyone wants Cushman breakfast sandwiches).
Speaking of breakfast sandwiches. It's not on the menu, but here's what I order and they are happy to oblige: GRILLED TOFU breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel, with spinach, avocado and red onion. You can pick whatever veggies. This creation came out of the blue one day when I asked them what their vegan options were. The woman said not much besides granola with soy milk. I looked disappointed and she shrugged her shoulders and made something up that she had seen her cook make for another employee, "Well, maybe we can put grilled tofu on a bagel." Now we're talkin' !! I order it every chance I can get :).
Cons: closes early
