Intelligentsia coffee, Bouchon pastries and Fonut donuts fuel this uber-chic coffeehouse, which also offers free Wi-fi. Formerly the Sonora Cafe, it's been completely transformed into a capacious, monochrome space with an art-gallery vibe, white-ceiling rafters, a white fireplace and an LED-lit peace-sign sculpture behind the counter. The counter staff is super-friendly and laid-back stylish (imagine hunky and/or reed-thin men in XS T-shirts cranking out artisanal coffee that's served on a white, square paper napkin and accompanied by animal crackers), but the music is hit or miss. Beyond the velvet-roped staircase lies an upstairs loft that seats eight and can be rented out for $35 an hour. (The cafe proper can also be rented for special events.) Baked goods, soups, sandwiches and all sorts of beverages are available for purchase, which makes Graffiti an excellent place to work, but take note: No outside food (not even water bottles) are permitted.

Good coffee and pretty interior be dames. Owner is a whacko steroid case who called my colleague a "nigger" for double parking. This horrible establishment crossed like line from pretentious to racist. Can't wait to see them finally shut down.
This place is stark and chilly, with bright white walls and some (usually bad) art on the walls above giant booths that are usually taken by one bro manspreading across the entire table. The food options are few, and recently they banned water bottles (!?) meaning you have to buy water from the to stay hydrated. Is that even legal?? They do have a somewhat cozy fireplace, and they sell fonuts (swoon), so the place isn't a total wash.
