I stop by Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria on a weekly basis for gelato (a frequent rotation of flavors keeps things fun), but that doesn't mean you should overlook their other sweet bites. In particular, this Fruit Focaccia ($3.50). It's fluffier than your typical savory focaccia with a hint sweetness, and it's generously studded with golden and purple raisins, chopped walnuts, and almonds. Though it's best fresh in the morning, day-old slices make for a great breakfast when sliced in half, toasted, and liberally buttered. Sandwich them back together for a breakfast sandwich you crave henceforth.
