What Tierra Mia lacks in third-wave coffee aesthetics (you won’t find any sleek architecture here), they make up for in “everything you need when you really need to focus.” Their Lincoln Heights outpost is especially large, with plenty of both indoor and outdoor tables. At $4 a cup, the coffee is affordable, ranging from simple cups of drip to pleasantly sweet horchata lattes. There are plenty of outlets and room to spread out, but most importantly, you can post up for hours without anyone side-eyeing you, waiting to steal the table. Head here the next time you procrastinate on an assignment.
