With everyone seemingly owning a laptop and Wi-Fi coffee shops popping up all over town, more and more people are escaping the office or classroom to get away, to work away from work. In our Westside neighborhood, the place to surf while you sip your java is Octane. But the most unique coffeehouse experience citywide may well be 11:11 TEAHOUSE. Theres a medicinal herb garden, and its luscious wafts of peppermint, ginger and rosemary make it as serene of a setting as you could ever hope for. Plus, there are 30 exotic tea combinations concocted from 150 herbs, and the prerequisite free Wi-Fi access. The chain coffee shops have their place, but to get unique you have to go local.
