“Calm” and “secluded” are two words that apply to Brickell about as well as “affordable” and “old-fashioned.” However, I Think She Is, a small coffee shop and cafe on the north edge of Brickell, is actually both those things - at least by Brickell standards. Still, the coffee shop is probably the neighborhood’s best option if you want to get work done in a relatively chill and comfortable space that’s not overflowing with business people having loud AirPod conversations. They also have some food like açaí bowls, toast, and sandwiches. There’s also an above-average chance of finding parking on SW 1st Ave just a block away, which is something we rarely get to say about Brickell establishments.
