Break Room Cafe appears to be taking over for the Studio City location of New York, NY Fresh Deli. With a casual concept centered on fresh fruit juices, sandwiches, and salads, it could be mistaken for Oakland’s The Break Room Cafe, but that veers into all vegetarian and vegan versions of the same selection. Next door, Short Stop, a wine and spirits market, looks nearly ready to make up for the loss of The Spirit Cellar, which was housed in the same building. The duo could potentially become a vital last stop to fill parent hip flasks and get a reasonably priced lunch for the whole family before a trip to neighboring Universal Studios.
