  1. My favorite breakfast spot. Good food, great iced coffee, and you can read the NY Times while waiting.

  2. I never went in there as much as I should have, especially considering they served my favorite La Colombe coffee. Alex came out to say hi to our dog a couple of times. A big loss for the neighborhood.

  3. Alex will be sorely missed by many of us. He was such a sweet man. We hope Parco can keep going and continue to employ the anonymous woman who makes the best croissant in the whole neighborhood.
