Bites 2013: Spicy Cucumber Sandwich

It's a little thin, so you think maybe its flavor will be a little thin, but it's not — it's really, really not. So you keep biting away at the hot-and-cool, wheat-bread-bound package of applewood-smoked bacon, cucumbers, red onion, pepper jack cheese and burly jalapeño ranch, and you realize the only thin thing here is what's left of your doubt. ($7.95)

Writer's Pick: Best Post-Court Comfort

I have this friend who used to make routine stops at the county courthouse on East Vermijo Avenue. This completely real and not-made-up friend loved speeding-ticket-based court appearances like he loved speeding itself, because it meant he could make a stop at the friendliest spot this side of a hug from your grandma: The Corner Cafe. Owners Virginia and Bob Smoot brought their homey ways from California in 2004, and since then I have — I mean, ahem, my friend has — never found anything that soothes the burn from a $400 speeding ticket like sitting at a sidewalk table and enjoying some coffee and a breakfast burrito made with Bob's own pork green chili. — Bryce Crawford
