It’s that chilly time of year when I can’t help but crave something warm and soothing. Thankfully Glenda and Suzie Keenan, the mother-daughter team behind Blue Sky Oil & Vinegar and the Olio & Aceto food truck, opened a cheery brick-and-mortar cafe earlier this year where you’ll find winter relief aplenty. Every menu item, from sandwiches and salads to soups (try the butternut squash!), is made using an oil or vinegar sold in the Blue Sky shop a few doors down. The result: More flavor in every bite. I could only finish half of my mammoth grilled pimento cheese sandwich with maple-pepper bacon that was perfectly smoky and oozing with cheese. Sandwiches come with pickles and sweet potato chips (so good you’ll wonder why anyone bothers with Lay’s), but if you’ve still got room, snag a baked good on your way out. $9
