The place this post will feature is yet another unconventional place* which appeals to the tech-savvy and geek crowd.

Coffee, which is almost an elusive hidden gem. Cafes, because freelancers or professionals on the road need a place to work too and also the taste of non-burnt coffee beans is good too.
