We are firm believers that there's a place—a café, rather, for everyone. After all, the full coffee experience wouldn't be complete without an ambience that we love and great coffee, of course. Whether you're into fashion, art, books, or music, we round up the best cafés that will fit your interests.

When Uan Met Sally
Perfect for: The fashionista
This shop-slash-café has a charming facade that will instantly catch your attention. When Uan Met Sally is a quaint café that doubles as a trove for handmade bags, vintage clothes and accessories for the shabby chic (think Friends' Phoebe Buffay!).
