You might not think that a soundtrack of mostly punk and heavy metal would be conducive to getting work done, but it’s shockingly more soothing than the elevator music you usually hear in coffee shops. The soundtrack, plus the fact that it’s filled with worn-in furniture, and feels so homey you might absentmindedly kick off your shoes. If you need some food along the way, they have an all-vegan menu with pastries and sandwiches along with a bunch of tea and coffee options.
