Best Nerd Safe Space: BAMF Café

1821 N. Charles St., (667) 930-3371,

We were as surprised as anyone when the Millennium Falcon landed last year in the space that used to house the minimalist restaurant Canteen. The Star Wars ship’s new base BAMF (named after the sound that occurs when Nightcrawler, of the X-Men, teleports) Café has replaced the once quiet eatery with a brash, loud interior dedicated to all things nerd. Comic and sci-fi themed drinks are served at the coffee bar and light fare is served for the hungry while horror, science fiction, and fantasy films screen on the TVs. Fans of any genre can hang and talk, read comics, or strike of up a game of Magic: The Gathering.
