Il Posto

Il Posto: An Uptown oasis. Photo by renee b. photography.
In the age of 24/7 Facebook updates, permanent connection to the office by mobile device, and the constant flow of information via 140 characters on Twitter, rarely do we allow ourselves to enjoy a few moments of off-the-grid peace and quiet. Sometimes in life, you need to stop, sit back, and smell the basil pesto.

Tucked away on a quiet corner of Uptown, Il Posto is a refuge from life as we know it. Time passes slowly in this tiny cafe, whose quaintness contributes to its charm. Patrons line up in the narrow space along the counter lined with panini presses (a defense attorney's nightmare), where the kitchen staff transforms bread, meat, and cheese into perhaps the most delicious sandwiches in town. For more on Il Posto, check out our full review in this month's Dining Out article in OffBeat Magazine.

May your weekend be filled with plenty of free time.

Shh...don't tell people, it might get crowded. Gotta love the tuna & white bean salad.
