Hi. I'm a teacher who needs to meet with several students tomorrow evening in Westwood. Usually I meet with my students at the Novel (decent, not too expensive food offerings), but I think they encourage people who are studying to be in the downstairs, which is quite small (the outdoors seating might be cold). Given that UCLA has finals, I'm worried that it will be a madhouse. (Good places to talk and study on the UCLA campus close early Friday evenings.)
I've also met with students at the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf on Westwood at Ohio -- they have lots of outdoor seating, some seating in a plastic-enclosed area, and a total of three little tables inside. And they are very popular.
Does anyone know of some other cafés in Westwood which are relatively inexpensive, which allow studying, and which have a fair amount of indoor seating?
P.S. My favorite studying café is the Santa Monica Novel -- haven't been there in awhile, as I live across town -- the last time I went there, they didn't have the flan which I used to love...
