Best Place to Get Some Work Done - 2011
Monkey House Café
18862 Beach Blvd.
Huntington Beach, CA 92648
At this sprawling, family-run coffeehouse and café, the menu is your usual fare—coffee drinks, deli and grilled sandwiches, salads, soups, and pastries—though tasty and affordably priced (the delicious Funky Monkey espresso/chocolate/banana blended drink costs less than $4). But this is also an unexpected haven for those needing to get some work done on the ol' laptop. The WiFi is free, and there's an abundance of seating nooks and workspaces throughout the place—couches, tables, lounge seats, stools and bar seating. There's also a massive fake tree in the middle of the store from which toy monkeys hang—in case you need a little diversion. $$
