Much like its sister restaurant Magpie, Yellowbill Cafe’s baked goodies attract pastry lovers from miles around. With a selection that changes from season to season, those who work in the area always have something new to try. Right now the PopTart-like apple cinnamon hand pie ($8.50) is wooing everyone stopping in for a cup of coffee, with its tender crust, light glaze and chunky, not-too-sweet filling. Almost a meal in itself, these pies are happy to be shared. But get there early. Yellowbill’s pies are notorious for selling out well before lunchtime.1425 14th Street, www.yellowbill.com.
