The Toms store is basically just another spot on Abbot Kinney that will try to lure you in and sign you up for their newsletter. Bypass all of that and head to the back patio. One of our favorite places to get some work down on the Westside, this hidden plot of astroturf has scattered chairs and tables, plus a whole wall of wooden bleachers to sit on with your laptop. If you need a pick-me-up, they have a full coffee bar inside.
