It’s happened to the best of us—you need a place to sit with your laptop and work all day, but you don’t want to starve. You’re entitled to good food, so set up camp at Mr. West. It’s a very attractive space with a lot of plants, marble, gold accents, and monochrome wall art, which goes pretty naturally with a matcha latte and some curried avocado toast. There are a ton of pastries to choose from if you're in the mood for something sweet, and they do classy panini and salads at lunchtime. And when Happy Hour strikes, they break out cheese boards, kettle chips, and frozen wine slushies that don't taste like Sprite. We’d gladly live here.
