A neighborhood coffee and sandwich shop — basket optional

Picnic, from the owners of The Raven Grill, feels homey, like a hybrid of the traditional neighborhood bakery, sandwich shop and coffee shop. The seating inside is one giant—and we mean giant—picnic table, so we hope you like neighbors. The restaurant's specialty is the box picnic lunch, which includes a sandwich, fruit salad, chips, a cookie and a pickle. The counter holds a map of good picnic spots that includes parks both near (the Cullen Sculpture Garden and Miller Outdoor Theatre) and far (the Water Wall). Homemade cookies, cakes, brownies and scones are baked daily. The restaurant also features a special bread, which changes daily. Try to make it on Monday for Cinnamon Raisin or on Tuesday for Cranberry Pecan!
