Cherry Street has the Feel Good Factor for coffee shops - it’s bright inside, there’s always a constant but not outrageous flow of people, and the seats are extremely comfortable. You could do some morning work alone, have a lowkey lunch meeting (complete with tasty Persian stews like gheymeh with saffron and split peas), or sit down at 3pm to do one last push before going home for the night. Not to mention that they have oat milk, which one day will be used as our national currency.
