Hipster coffee shop serving fresh, homemade soups and sandwiches all day

Restaurant, Coffee/Tea/Juice

Hi-Fi is a small, cozy, arty hipster coffee shop that serves an array of pastries, homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, and pizzas; fresh-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, and good, strong, CHEAP coffee -- you can still grab a steaming cup in house for a measly buck. You could easily spend several hours in Hi-Fi sipping away the day before heading outside for some thrift shopping.

Their soups are always vegetarian, and often vegan. Some of their salads and sandwiches are vegan, and others can be made vegan by omitting cheese or mayo, etc. They're usually glad to leave off anything if you ask.

I've been here a few times over the years and always have the same impression "meh". The food is decent, and they have a few vegan things, but nothing spectacular. It's probably the most vegan friendly coffee shop in the neighborhood, which is a big plus, and it's a huge step up from the McDonalds across the street, but it's pretty plain to me.

Also, I can't stand cigarette smoke, and this place is always full of it. If it weren't so obnoxiously smoky, I might like it more, as I love how much light comes into the shop and it's a convenient location.

Vegetarian food seems easy to come by, but as a vegan, I was only able to find two options. The food was bland and the cafe seems to be populated almost entirely by hipsters, as is the neighborhood it's in.
