Don't plan to hit up this Irving Park eatery for a mid-afternoon snack--the staff takes a siesta-style break from 2 to 6 p.m. And that's not the only European touch. The architect who designed the place (and who happens to work next door) also crafted the bright interior with French and Italian country bakeries in mind. The menu includes danishes, croissants and other baked goods, as well as some heartier picks such as veggie and prosciutto sandwiches served on a choice of baguette, croissant or panini bread. The 12-inch sesame seed-crust pizzas, available for dining in or to-go, are a bargain at less than $5 each.
