Ost Cafe has a smart concept and welcoming vibe. Caffeine hub by day, where you will find many a laptop-using drinkers, and wine bar with small plates by night, with couples and small groups having a low-key night—or vice versa, if that's your fancy. In design and service, it serves both. The staff is very friendly, offering a treat for your pup should you bring one along. And the brew is made well, with a knowing staff that cares about what they're doing. Be sure to grab a fresh almond croissant in the morning and sit right outside on one of their benches with prime people watching on the weekends.
