    I've always loved this place for its laid back vibe of hippies, jazz aficionados, pot smoking neighbors...It's getting a little over run with hipsters, but go here for local music and a good beer

    Need a break today? Head to Revolution and throwback to the days when a coffeeshop was a gathering place for conversation and personal interactions. It's a great spot to people watch if you're alone. Read more

    Excellent place to sit down to read a book, write in a notebook, or sit outside with a pitcher of sangria on a really nice day. People are also usually smoking weed outside.
