If you’re looking for somewhere that has more plants than The Secret Garden and a place where you can sip on a latte on a rocking chair, head to Kensington’s Franny Lou’s Porch. They have a lineup of coffees, teas, and juices but it’s their espresso drinks—which are named after key activists throughout history—that can get creative with the flavoring. From the Martin Luther King that has a peanut butter and mocha twist to the Ida B. Wells that has a subtle taste of mint and lavender, all of the drinks go well with their salads, sandwiches like their turkey sausage and cheese, and Philly muffins. It’s an easygoing and quiet place with a patio sofa outside where you can go from your couch to theirs and recreate the feel of a lazy weekend on a Monday.
