An independent coffee shop with Bohemian style, Pick a Cup hosts a communal computer and plenty of board games, displays and sells work for local artists and has a small stage surrounded by eclectic furniture perfect for lounging. The main draw is an ever-changing menu of events, including documentary screenings, drum circles, liberal activist meetings and health seminars. Not your typical cafe, the deli sandwiches are garnished with kiwi slices and there's a variety of refreshing fruit smoothies that use green tea as a base.
