First up, your standard Starbucks. Starbucks is great because it's fairly quiet depending on which one you go to and they're everywhere. So, no matter where you are, you should be able to find a Starbucks. Plus, you can of course get yourself a drink and a nice little treat.Annemarie's favorite one is the one downtown at Robinson and Stuart. It's usually pretty quiet and chill there....just not on a Sunday morning.
Another place we love is Ellwood's Cafe. It's probably not a good idea to go here until late afternoon if you're planning on studying as it's a pretty hoppin' place. However, if you can get a spot sitting outside, you're golden. Also, on the nights that they are open later, that's probably a good time to go.
Crossroads. We love that place. They not only serve the typical coffee and tea but also ICE CREAM! Let's be honest, who doesn't like ice cream? It is my weakness, I must admit. This is a great spot to plop down for a few hours and study hard over a cup of joe and/or ;) ice cream. You can also sit outside and if you are lucky you can snag the cute little bench on the grassy spot out back! Here is the link to the website. There are two locations:
26 N. Morris Street, Richmond, Virginia 23220
3600 Forest Hill Avenue, Richmond, Va. 23225
Urban Farmhouse is another favorite of Annemarie's. If you go after two then you are set up for a great little time out. There is a plethora of snacks and drinks to choose from and the atmosphere is great for those who absolutely love Richmond. And if you don't love Richmond, maybe you should try this place out. It may change your opinion! ;)
And last but not least! Barnes and Noble! The great thing about this place is that you don't have to pay for anything. That means that you can walk in, sit down, grab whatever books you need AND get free WiFi! That's my kinda place! Just google "Barns and Noble richmond va locations" and find the one closest to you!
That's all for now! We hope that this helps you with studying for finals!
