You'll find the bake shop and beer garden Easy Tiger in the Linc shopping center in the Highland neighborhood. The cafe side with coffee and pastries is open early (7am) and it’s a good place to bring a laptop and get some work done. The big outdoor beer garden, complete with ping pong tables, opens at 11am during the week and at 9am on weekends for brunch, and it’s both dog- and kid-friendly. Come for a few drinks, and order charcuterie, pastrami sandwiches, house-made sausages, and pretzels. Easy Tiger at the Linc can also get pretty busy, especially during brunch.
