Fulcrum Cafe is a relaxing place to drink coffee and work - the tables are made of marble and there's a lot of expensive-looking wood everywhere. Get one of their lattes made with flavorings like black sesame and brown sugar or goat milk and elderflower as well as a granola bar cookie and you're set for a productive morning.
