If you’re looking for a place to grab some grub, chat, and/or do some work, Avocado Café Irvine is a great spot. The menu items are all reasonably priced ($10 or less), and the quality is fantastic!
I liked the Kissel’s Club and Chai latte here. There are also a few plugs for electronics (not each table has one, though, so you’ll have to pick where to sit if you’re doing work) and wooden tables with enough space for food and/or work to do. The service is great – everyone is friendly, and the atmosphere is conducive to doing work if it’s not full. There is indoor and outdoor seating available and free parking on the street and in a structure. Highly recommend this local business!
