    It got popular recently. Packed on weekend nights now. It's still a great place to chill on week nights, though

    Only wine, beer, and non-hard alcohol cocktails (wine tails) by night, but a great bar stop nevertheless. Comfy ambiance and a seemingly local crowd.

    Stacks of books will get you in the "studying" mood at this cafe by day/lounge by night. "Study snacks" like potato skins, housemade chicken salad, and milk & cookies are available starting at noon. Read more

    Good music and atmosphere for casual hangout. The wall-mounted chairs are a bit too high and uncomfortable, so be sure to grab a spot at a regular table.

    This place is the closest vibe (culturally, not literally) to a pub I've found in this neighborhood. And their Friday night DJ kicks ass.
