It’s probably because Natalie Coleman and Alexander Brand’s lunchtime food truck (OK, it’s technically a trailer) is a source of exceptionally well-made sandwiches — their BLT is rapturously good — but another major attraction is the freshly prepared sodas, with flavors that range from basil-lime to rosemary-grapefruit.
