Boutiques With Benefits: 10 Places To Shop & Drink

With online and mobile shopping at an all-time high, brick-and-mortar stores are feeling the pressure to make their shopping experience as worthwhile as possible. Our favorite in-store benefit to crop up on the streets of New York City, LA and San Francisco has to be the in-shop cafe.
