Vif is part espresso cafe, part wine bar, part French bistro, and all great. Come here when you want brunch but still want to be able to stand up afterwards, or grab a glass of wine and snacks while you get some work done. This is the perfect spot for a first date when you’re trying to meet for a latte, but then it turns into a romantic bottle of merlot with some cheese. Also, there is a parking lot, which means you won’t have to circle the block screaming profanities in your Prius.
