Great Place to Hang Out & Chat or Get Some Work Done – I love this place. I'm in here at least once a week and I've brought bunches of people here. The workers are really friendly, and I usually end up having a quick chat with the owner (also very friendly) if I'm there long enough. You can sit for hours nursing one cup of tea or coffee and no one will chase you out. There's free wireless if you bring your own laptop, or you can rent time on one of the cafe's computers for a small fee.
There's a great selection of coffees and teas and there are always fresh-baked goods at the counter. I recommend the double chocolate muffins -- they're awesome! There is plenty of seating (couches, armchairs, tables, etc.) and the owner is constantly shifting the furniture around to achieve the best ambiance. There's artwork from local artists on the walls and usually some kind of indie music playing in the background.
I get tons of work done here. This might be where I'm the most productive.
They also try to be environmentally friendly. I like that.
