The Tea Lounge
I remember the first time I came to this place, when a friend who had just moved to the city for graduate school dragged me here with lots of wide-eyed hyperbole about how he'd found the greatest place ever with the nicest people and the best food
to work on whatever it was he was working on. As it turned out, he was totally right. A staple both for local parents and writers itching to get out of the house, the Tea Lounge is the comfy-couched platonic ideal of a relaxed neighborhood place to come and do what you need to do. Their excellent espresso, general willingness to incorporate Nutella into the menu, and surprisingly cheap happy hour don't hurt, either.
