Best Funky Laundromat 

Doo Wash Cafe

We've all seen laundromats that double as cafes, but Doo Wash takes the idea an extra step. Located across the street from the soon-to-be-renamed Joe DiMaggio Playground (if his lawyer will get over it), the laundromat boasts not only self-service washing machines and dryers, but a full-service laundry and dry-cleaning business, nine video games, electronic basketball, and a TV lounge equipped with sofas. But wait -- there's more! The place also features a computer with high-speed Internet access (20 cents a minute), a photocopy machine, mailboxes for rent, and a large cafe, featuring espresso drinks, bagels, sandwiches, pastries, and candy sold by the pound. Doo Wash isn't impressive from the outside, but beyond the doorway is a whole self-contained world. In fact, it's expected to offer weekend packages soon. Just kidding. We think.
