It’s the kind of place that seems like it could be swallowed up by new condos any moment, but the bizarre Mercury Cafe is still around in West Town. The floors are uneven, the air a little (OK, a lot) musty and random crap is stacked everywhere, but I still pop in for the decent menu of sandwiches on the cheap—like the turkey, guac and provolone. But even better than the great bread selection is the cup of sliced sweet pickles offered as a sandwich side. They may not make the best use of their obnoxiously large space, but they do know how to slice up a damn good pickle.
