Coffee Shop

Gastropub
$$
“For many years this was “Sister’s Hardware” and one day I looked up and it was this cool skylit eatery. The Sisters space is genuinely unusual and objectively awesome-looking, from the ceilings to the black brick walls to the massive white wood and marble bar that takes up the front room. And during the day, the huge skylight that lets in tons of natural light. This place is straight up PRETTY. But the food, which includes fresh, solid takes on the usual suspects like kale, burger, mac and cheese et al, is pretty good as well. At night, a DJ takes over in the back room, and the whole space turns into more of a bar and general place of drinking and hanging out. Hanging out can also happen here during the daytime - chill vibes and pretty people fill this place at all hours.”
