Whether you’re working on your new script for a Netflix show about an eccentric retirement community, or finishing that business plan for a startup that’s like Uber but for skateboards, you need a good all-day spot like Better Half. This West Fifth cafe from the team behind Brew & Brew serves food from 8am-10pm daily, with biscuit sandwiches and granola in the morning and dishes like a very good cheeseburger or a grain bowl the rest of the day. If all of a sudden it’s 4pm and the only names you’ve thought of for your main character are Rose, Dorothy, Blanche, or Sophia, get a cocktail during their daily Happy Hour.
