WHY House-baked pastries, good sandwiches, Intelligentsia coffee, Lupicia teas and tomb-like quiet for working.
WHAT With a no-talking upstairs study area and a quiet downstairs lounge, plus a leafy patio with plenty of shade umbrellas and no restriction on chatting, Bricks & Scones appeals to serious students and screenwriters as well as ladies who lunch and have afternoon tea. We aren’t partial to the heavy, salty scones that everyone seems to adore, but the muffins and sandwiches are quite good (try the mango curried chicken salad sandwich).
WHO Laptop-toters and people fresh from yoga class. ;;
