La Social is a cafe in MiMo that works for a quiet lunch or relatively stress-free brunch. They serve toasts, sandwiches, salads, egg dishes, and pastries, but the food is just alright - this is really more of a place you come for the convenience than the quality. They have some very pretty outdoor seating and it’s usually easy to get a table, so keep this spot in mind next time no one in your group can make a decision and you’re about to explode from hunger.
