Now that the weather is a bit more wintry, we figured you could use some extra motivation to step out. Sadly good eats and strong drinks can only motivate to a certain extent. So in the interest of proving there’s more to life than sunny days and day drinking in beer gardens (although not much more if you ask us), we put together a list of some spots to cozy up next to a roaring fire – including coffee shops, classy restaurants, a few drinking spots of course, and everything in-between.

Did we miss one? Did one of these places close? Send us a note!
