[MSP] Cool Temps, Study-Friendly, and Good Food?
The end of my semester (and 4.5 years of college) is in sight! But for some reason they haven't turned on the A/C yet, making it 85° F in my apartment. So that means I have a reason to go out!
Are there any favorite places in the metro where one can relax in either breezy or A/C-filled rooms, bring a laptop or other materials, and enjoy some good food and arctic-cold iced tea? I've been giving some nasty stares by servers for staying too long like this before, so I'm looking for a place where it's alright.
The Birchwood Cafe serves lemonade and iced tea all year 'round. And it's fine to camp at a table for hours - my record so far is around 4 or 5 hours, I think. (I work at home, and the Birchwood is my official office.)
I do tend to avoid peak mealtimes, because it gets quite crowded and noisy, and you might get a stare from someone waiting for a table. People rarely sit at the counter, so you could move there during lunch or dinner.
However, I don't know if they have turned on the air conditioning yet. There's always the outdoor tables!
