Sweet Hereafter feels something like sitting in a cigar box. It’s a dark, warm and cramped wooden box where the things crowded up against you smell like tobacco. And yet there’s something warm and fuzzy about this quietly vegan tavern, which attracts both a loyal neighborhood crowd and a large contingent of vegetable-based visitors with designs on tofu bowls and a massive boozed-up Arnold Palmer served in a Mason jar. The large, enclosed patio has enough picnic tables to accommodate opposing softball squads and their supporters, but that woody interior is the place you want to be. MARTIN CIZMAR.
Happy hour: 4-7 pm daily. $1 off select draft beer, house wine and well cocktails; food specials.
