It’s happened to the best of us - you need a place to sit with your laptop and work all day, but you don’t want to starve. You’re entitled to good food, so set up camp at Mr. West. It’s a very attractive space with a lot of plants, marble, gold accents, and monochrome wall art, which goes pretty naturally with a matcha latte and some curried avocado toast. Their homemade pastries are also worth eating (we like the cornflake-crusted cream donut), and they do classy panini and salads at lunchtime. When Happy Hour strikes, they break out cheese boards, really good kettle chips from Long Island, and the frozen “springria” slushie (sauvignon blanc, cocchi americano, vanilla, and grapefruit). We’d gladly live here.
