One Hit Wonders

I've been thinking it would be fun to do a food tour. I've considered doing it with a professional group but some of the ones I've looked into are rather cost prohibitive. Here's what I'm thinking- places that make one or two things that are absolutely outstanding. The requirements are...
1. Places that are within a 10 minute walk of a subway
2. Places that serve food that can be easily eaten as take out or, ideally, a small cafe/informal eating area where it would be kosher to just order one item and not feel guilty about taking up a table
3. Food must be available during the daytime (I add in this disclaimer because I realize many food carts would meet this criteria and that's great but I don't want to have to take this tour after seven at night and I realize many street vendors are only out at an hour I consider to be bedtime).

Bonus points to any suggestions for clusters of places that serve very different things (although it could be fun to try, for example, empanadas from three different places and compare).

I live and love Queens but would be open to any borough...
