Tate Street Coffee is a fun place to go get coffee and chill out with friends. Even if you are alone, it is fun to people-watch or read the fun things on the walls. They have great desserts -- I think they buy them from a local bakery, rather than making them in-house. If you enjoy trying beans from all over the world, you can buy them at Tate Street Coffee. Parking can be a chore, but if the weather is nice, there is plenty to look at as you stroll back to your car.
