The owner here spent 10 months preparing to open, hence its name. From its beautifully-illustrated menu to Eastern-Western decor, October exudes a warm, friendly vibe. The menu includes light meals, European-style baked eggs, omelets, whole-wheat sandwiches, fresh bagels, baked tacos, salads and desserts--all fresh-made with healthy ingredients. Order a meal and there's a 50% discount on drinks, including alcoholic beverages, freshly-blended juices and coffee. --By Javier Siles, translated by Angel Pu
