The Semi-Tropic is one of my favorite new neighborhood hangs. And for quite a few reasons. For one, there aren’t many places that have the cozy comforts of a cafe, amazing food and alcohol available all day. This 21+ cafe serves its many purposes seamlessly from 8:00 AM through 12:00 AM on weekdays, and 2:00 AM on weekends. They also house the friendliest staff I’ve had the pleasure of meeting since the Park restaurant. Hospitality can sometimes come last in cool, hipster joints such as this; an unfortunate and unnecessary mistake made on the management side. But kindness always wins in the long run, and The Semi-Tropic is a perfect example of this.

As I also experienced the other day, it’s a space you can camp out at for a fulfilling day of work with some luxuries to aid you along the way. It’s fully equipped with plenty of outlets for all your electronic needs, and offers comfortable couches along with many tables. My workdays at The Semi-Tropic generally start with a delicious latte, evolving to a lunchtime delicacy – my favorite is the Avocado & Burrata Toast with pesto, confit tomatoes and pickled peppers. If I accomplish my tasks, I reward myself with a glass of wine, reasonably priced at $6 during their happy hour.

Make sure to check out this special spot, and prepare to stay a while. You won’t want to leave!
