This funky space has it all. Bookstore café by day, music venue and wine bar by night, La Cite is always a good choice. With its open loft overlooking the first floor and large front windows that almost reach the ceiling, this historical building has an energy all its own. Come during the day and sink into one of the eclectic array of chairs to grab a cappuccino and chat, read or study, then come back later to find a new local band and favorite new wine. It does get a little crowded in this intimate space, especially when there’s a band since there is no actual stage, so get there early for the night life.
