One night not too long ago I realized a terrible thing. I was out of breakfast food for the next morning. I was quickly saved from my predicament, however, when I remembered that Rush Snack Bar had recently opened in the 7th Street / Metro Center portal on Hope Street. Conveniently, this is the station I get off at every morning, so all I had to do was exit a different portal and I could have a breakfast and try a new place.

The menu of $1 items on the wall, plus bagels (although I wish they had blueberry and a bagel toaster — they could solve my Downtown bagel problem), pastries, and drinks could have had me in and out in barely longer than a minute or two. Instead, though, I went with a waffle. Sure, it takes a little longer to make, but the staff was extremely friendly and I had some time. Plus, take a look at this picture and tell me you wouldn’t be glad if you chose the same:
