Farley’s is a coffee shop that feels like it was ripped out of a Chuck Lorre script. It’s one of those places where you just kind of come to hang out and there are people on their laptops waiting for a group of four unlikely friends to come in and drive the episode’s plot forward in some hilarious way. The staff is friendly, there are a lot of seats, and if you forgot your laptop, there are a ton of magazines for sale in the back that you can pretend to read as the comic relief character bursts through the door to tell the other three how a squirrel locked him out of his apartment.
