Radical bookstore featuring a vegan cafe
Bluestockings is a self-proclaimed "radical bookstore" and they feature speaking events, films, and book readings/signing nearly every day. Topics of events range from animal rights, to environmentalism, to race relations, to gender equality.
Bluestockings also sells progressive stuff like Diva cups, moon pads, fair-trade/eco clothes and other items with progressive slogans on them.
They offer some vegan, organic, and fair trade snacks but no real food.

This is a pretty cool book shop with a good selection of vegan cookbooks and some obscure academic stuff and good fiction. They also have some pre-packaged vegan cake slices and muffins.
I had a big cup of tea and listened to people around me chat about veganism, movies, and other college-era discussion topics. It's a nice environment on a busy street and a good place to just sit and read.
I've been here a million times for events but have never eaten or gotten coffee here. This is a really good place to support because all of the events are free (although some suggest a donation) and they cover a range of progressive topics like animal rights, environmentalism, hunger/homelessness, race relations, gender equality, and more.
They've recently started to have more events focusing on Latino issues (they just had, what I believe to be their first, event in Spanish), which I think is necessary for the surrounding Puerto Rican community.
