The cult coffee chain has expanded all over the city recently and no matter what time you go, there will definitely be a line of girls you went to college with waiting for a mint mojito iced coffee. Mayhem aside, we love Philz because it’s one of the best places to set up shop and plow through some work. There are tables everywhere, the wifi is strong, and there are enough outlets for all of downtown combined.
