Conveniently located just uphill from the 36th Street
express subway stop in Sunset Park, Green Fig is a pleasant little
café with an intriguing selection of sandwiches, coffees, and baked
goods--the last category including a full case of vegan cookies and pastries, many involving chocolate. The sandwiches approach $10 in price, but are fully stuffed. Indeed, the slogan of the place is "All of our sandwiches are enough for two." From the display, we picked the one featuring fresh mozzarella, soppressata sliced thin, and an herbal dressing that knocked the sandwich into orbit. Coffee's good, too. Free wi-fi and a modest amount of sidewalk seating complete the picture.
