If you need a spot that feels like a mountainside small-town book nook, Green Bean is your place. There’s an assortment of armchairs as well as personal and communal tables (vulture-stalk to get one by a window). The coffee here is served in mugs that you’d mistake for ones from your own home, and everyone tends to be really warm and friendly in here.
