Quickie Pickie is where you go fully intending to just pick up a box of Good Pops and a bottle of wine, until you find yourself having lunch or dinner on the patio without realizing how or why. This high-end convenience store and all-day cafe has two locations now, but the original on East 11th is the more low-key of the two and is a great place to grab a sandwich, salad, or burger on the patio. Just make sure you don’t forget about the popsicles slowly melting in the bag by your feet.
