On a quiet street just east of West Lake, this Himalayan café brews some of the city's best java. It's nearly impossible to pass by the curious streetside seating—picture a colorful wooden bench surrounded by potted plants, a vintage TV, and two golden Buddhas—without taking a peek inside. Inside, the eclectic space is outfitted with quilted tablecloths, comfy sofas, knit blankets, and walls stacked with books and knickknacks. Aside from coffee and a room exploding
with character, you can also expect steamy teas, sandwiches, and a well-stocked bar.
