Venturing a little bit further into Golden Hill, you’ll find Café Madeleine. Upon first glance, this cute café looks like something out of a movie set. Get yourself a delicious cup of Illy coffee or a made to order panini, and take in the French cafés atmosphere.
Need a café that’s great for studying? Then you should pay Influx a visit. Not only do they have great coffee, but a great selection of meals as well. With many indoor tables and outlets for your laptops, this location is a hub for those looking to get some work done. This spot can get a bit busy so you may have to wait for a table.
Another staple in the Golden Hill area? Krakatoa! This spot is also very popular for studying, but offers a happy hour daily from 3pm-6pm.
