    Get the lox and cream cheese bagel with lettuce, tomato, onion, and capers. Closest you'll ever get to being a New York Jew.

    Amid the well-documented Shepard Fairey mural, thrift-store furnishings and vegan snacks at Fishtown’s Rocket Cat Café is a worthy fair-trade espresso roasted by Norristown’s Fonseca.
