MV Street View: Island Cafes

Just now, before the seasonal pace picks up, take some time to enjoy the laid-back pleasure of  Martha’s Vineyard’s cafes and coffee houses.  Bring a book, your laptop or your current work in progress. Stake your claim to a window seat or more discreet table in the back.  Kick back a few espressos and get busy or wait for someone to show up to help you procrastinate. Either way, relocating your living room to a public space can be a fun and delicious way to while away a few hours.
