Factory cafe is known as the “Cafe with a Soul” and it’s apparent once the doors are open.  Huge swings hanging from the ceiling, cozy corners, magazines, books and a room designed like someone’s family room to chillax for hours.  It’s not an ideal spot for work or anything requiring wifi (in fact, it’s strictly discouraged), but for conversation, and the coffee and food are a delight.

TIP: Open Daily 9am-1opm
