This shop's somewhat of a chameleon and it totally suits those who work and play hard. You can show up at 6:30 a.m., sip as many cups of Joe as you need to get the BPM going, then by 4 p.m., you're wrapping up just in time for a happy hour wind-down with wine. Oh, and the Caviar Toast Tartine and Chocolate Croissants are like serious spoonfuls of sugar to help studying go down!
