The vibe: The Ormewood Park cafe is well-named - its multiple rooms feature a mishmash of artwork and handicrafts by local artists, from the established to the up-and-coming. Hip parents and their hip kids alike abound.
The drink: Double pulls of espresso are the standard for all specialty drinks. Just waking up? Order a Kick in the Pant ($3.25), a Batdorf & Bronson-sourced drip coffee fortified with two shots.
The rest: Hodgepodge offers a variety of vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and paleo snack options, and recently launched a "tropics-inspired" brunch service available Fridays through Sundays from opening until the food runs out.
