A stone’s throw from the Tribeca Grand Hotel, this no-frills corner cafe serves gourmet brown bag fare to Tribeca’s lunch masses. Specialties include the Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese and Sun-dried Tomato Vinaigrette, the Country Ham sandwich with sweet pickles, and the Fresh Mozzarella sandwich with roasted peppers, arugula, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. All of the ingredients are healthy, wholesome, high-quality and without excess. For the carb-conscious, there’s an option to have your sandwich wrapped in lettuce instead of bread. Be sure to check out the specials for sweet surprises like bing cherries or mint iced tea, and treat yourself to one of the Molasses soft-baked cookies or the decadent chocolate brownie. Hungry Tribecans have been hooked on Cafe Clementine for years – just swing by and taste why.
