Sherman Cafe Union Sq.

Reading about Mariposa made me remember that I've been meaning to post something about the awesome little cafe in Union Sq called Sherman. I haven't read anything about them here and wonder if people have stopped in there. I think they've been open less than a year and since it's a few blocks away we go all the time. The scones are some of the best around - nice crumb not at all cakey or pasty - and always fresh and warm if you get there around 10 on the weekends. I like them better than the scones at Toscannini and Sons(aka Panini). They have Batdorf & Bronson coffee and an appealing menu of pressed sandwiches. I haven't had one yet since I'd never have room for a scone and a sandwich. Anyone tried one? Cool space, hipsters at the helm and inde rock on the boom box. I dig it.
