The all-day spot Kinda Tropical is part cafe and part bar, with good coffee, cocktails, and a menu that has, well, kind-of-tropical things like a good pulled barbecue jackfruit sandwich and yucca fries., but you can also get “the big salad,” a solid burger, and curly fries. There are a bunch of outlets where you can get work done during the day, and there’s also a big dog-friendly outdoor patio.
