Nothing says a relaxing day like drinking a hot coffee and reading a throwback comic. The Sidekick is the space for you to hang out, play games, and read any of their Trade Paperback & Single Issue comics.

Yes, that is coffee with cotton candy. Light Café has some seriously unique drinks ranging from vanilla ice cream coffee to tiramisu lattes. Their food also shouldn’t be ignored; they’re famous for their charcoal black sesame waffles and insane options for layer cakes. They also have a signature leaf-covered wall that, if you didn’t take a pic in front of it and post, it means you didn’t go. I don’t make the rules…


Who doesn’t want to make s’mores by the fire while cuddling up with some coffee? Hot Black Coffee has taken all your caffeinated favs and made them even better. Bring your friends or significant other here and get to know them more, because this place has no wifi. Shocking, I know, but a little social interaction will be good for you!
