a cafe for reading?

memostothefuture | Nov 15, 2007 09:02 AM

I've been looking for the equivalent of the vienna coffeehouse without much luck recently. a place where I could go, have a nice hot chocolate and something small to eat and lounge out for an hour, reading the nyt without it being overly loud. yes, starbucks kind of works but it's like a band-aid on a severed limb.

anyone feel like recommending a place? should I try a hotel?
where do you feel comfortable reading alone in the afternoon or early evening?
