This two-story spot in the International district reminds us of a college town cafe in the middle of finals week. Most people in here are tapping away relentlessly on their keyboards, eating Nutella-filled crepes, and mixing caffeine and IPA as if it weren’t 9:45 in the morning. You’ll probably enjoy it even if you don’t have a 16-page paper due the next day that you certainly didn’t start yet.
