This is one of my favorite places to read quietly. The children’s area is to the right, and the noise doesn’t leak into the adult area. There are tables with charging areas for adults to read and charge at the same time. The tables are close to the restroom, so it’s easy to be there for hours. Also, there are couches if you don’t need to charge. They are comfortable and it is easy to read there, too.
This is also an easy spot for an Uber pickup or to catch the K, L, or M streetcar. Down the street are many restaurants and shops, and a movie theater and bookstore. It’s a perfect place to spend a day visiting.
