Steiner Street -- Afternoon delight
Start at Bean There Cafe at Steiner and Waller. They don't have the amazing pastries that Cafe du Soleil has, but the coffee is pretty tasty and the cafe is well lit and the tables are the perfect size for a lap top or a luxurious novel). If you can look past the somewhat apathetic wait staff (they're not rude, but sometimes it takes a bit too long to get the attention of one of the four idle bodies standing behind the counter) it's a cozy place to hang out for a chat with friends or strangers on a long afternoon.
Even better is to get your coffee (or your chai!) in a to-go cup to trot two doors down to Dolci Beauty Lounge for a little mani/pedi combination. It's a bit pricey in comparison to some of the spas in town, but the convenience of it (combined with the super-duper massage chairs!) makes it worth it.
Here's an interesting bit of trivia. Dolci used to be called "Bliss" but it changed its name. For obvious reasons.
