Big Bear Cafe


The fairytale cobblestone patio and trellised grape vines make Big Bear Cafe, in Bloomingdale, a respite within the city; and while it's more of a sit-down situation at night, it's a great workspace during the day, equipped with good coffee and a solid menu of sandwiches and light bites. Beans are sourced from Maryland's Ceremony Coffee Roasters, and if you're using the space to work away, you're in luck: There are plenty of huge, simply prepared sandwiches ready to sustain you.
