Black Dog Cafe
229 Lake Ella Dr, Tallahassee, FL 32303
Decor gets an "Excellent", which includes the scenic "lake" view from the twinkling back patio covered in leafy vines. Sunset is the best time to visit, as this cafe has the most unique vibe of any cafe I've visited in Tallahassee; mostly because it's situated on the banks of a nicely sculpted pond with a showering fountain in the middle, where visitors and their furry children (pets, I mean) can stroll the circuitous sidewalk.

I'm always about their Italian Mango Soda (Club soda with a shot of mango syrup), but they serve a slew of coffee roasts and some teas (maybe lots of teas, but I never pay attention to their selection.)

Service is guaranteed to be witty and/or sarcastic (totally welcomed this sense of humor.) The vibe of this place is comfortably unique.

Sometimes I also surf active volcanoes... :P I'll definitely save that expression to use in the future! It was trial and error on determining the right interval for the map, so using an expression that automatically selects multiples would've saved a lot of time.

Simple, reusable notepad to replace scratch paper at the office:

- acrylic "plexiglass" sheet (home improvement store)
- Chalk markers (craft store)
- self adhesive vinyl bumpers (home improvement store)
- Olfa cutter for slicing theough acrylic (not sure, maybe a craft store? I got mine several years ago from a local shop that catered to Architecture students)

Ink stays put after a couple of minutes of drying. Wipes off with a dry or wet paper towel.

Tan's Asian Cafe
2743 Capital Cir NE, Tallahassee, FL 32308
Try the Beef Randang, a slow-cooked-all-day coconut-based, lightly curried, caramalized beef dish served with Indonesian rice cakes and perfectly steamed, still slightly crunchy broccoli. You'll melt like this dish melts in your mouth. And guess what's more.....the dish is only $8.00.

I frequent Tan's Asian, maybe twice a month. The service is some of the friendliest I've encountered in the restaurant business, however, if it's a busy Thurs or Fri night you might wait up to 45mins for cooked-to-order dishes like Chow-mein or Curry with Onion. The servers have always come over and apologized profusely, and sometimes even served complimentary egg rolls. Even so, I think it's worth the wait on these nights if you're not bound by time-sensitive commitments in a 2hr time-span.

Tan's is a small place next to Esposito's, a landscaping company, so it's surrounded by an assortment of ferns, vines, and giant clay gardening pots. Kind of a unique feel for a restaurant entrance even if it may not have been intentional. The inside of the cafe is clean enough. No strongly themed decorations and they have several booths and your standard tables. Overall the atmosphere fits the "cafe" genre of restaurants. You'll keep coming back for the delicious food.

Anyone in the San Fran area, heads up. I'd LOVE to go, but can't seem to justify the $500 plane ticket for a one day fly-in, fly-out.

Good ol' delicious hearty food (I hadn't had a monte cristo since growing up in the south - their version is between french toast sans the jam, but you can ask for it on the side.) Two happy hours - a morning and the reg evening. Can be slammed during the latter, but the staff are kick a** and everything came out in a very reasonable amount of time. If you're looking for hearty, regularly priced eats and drinks, or enjoy being a patron of local icons, try 5 Points.

Went for the Ai WeiWei installation in Feb 2015. The history and buildings of Alcatraz are interesting. Plenty of info around the island, but may want to do your own supplemental research into the history surrounding the occupation of the island by a group of Indians. Definitely worth the ferry ride out to Alcatraz in youre in the San Fran area, if just to explore the abandoned buildings.

Great little coffee place with excellent lattes. Really consistent, high standard in the coffee and espresso here. Street Bean is great! They have Mighty O donuts and toasted biscuits as well.

Convenient to the Central Square T stop, Andala has some good middle eastern and mediterranean dishes and drinks. Baklava, hummus plate, turkish coffee, couscous and tabouleh plates, etc. Plenty of seating, but not too many options for outlets if you're planning on working on a laptop for any length of time.

delicious and laid back - The pork broth ramen is tasty and there's a good selection of sake to enjoy. great late night food destination too. Points for playing ConAir at the bar and being very affordable in Belltown.

I'm ambivalent about Algiers. The food is pretty good, but maybe a little overpriced for the quality (pita seemed store bought and was served pretty dried out one time). Service is very slow even compared to other busy cafes/restaurants. But the space is interesting and so is the menu (mint and turkish coffees, tabbouleh plates, etc). I'm not sure if people working on laptops get the same or worse service since service seems pretty slow to begin with. Since this place can get very crowded, I'd advise buying more than a coffee if you're staying for awhile. It couldn't hurt.

For a southern style restaurant in the north, Redbones has created a very authentic experience. (I only wish casseroles were on the menu, but props for serving collard greens!) Service can get squirrelly during busy times, but staff are amiable. It's best to call ahead if you're dining on a Friday evening or on the weekend. Seating is very squished during these times.
