Small town coffee meets bright lights of Hollywood

I LOVE The Conservatory. I've tried several things on the drink menu at this point along with a variety of bakery items. My favorite drinks are either the iced toffee or the Mexican Mocha; the baristas are all kind and patient (they have to be, with the crowd they get). I don't know that I've ever... read more

Nice people, great coffee and lots of different teas, sweets. Good place and lots of street parking. I had English breakfast tea and a vanilla croissant. Yummy!

For coffee and hot drinks lovers, it is a great place to have breakfast or a break any time of the day. Decoration is traditional and there's nothing too fancy about the place, but it probably serves one of the best coffees in L.A. The place is actually in Culver City, very close to Sony studios and it's definitely worth... More

I was just in the States visiting the Westside and in my quest for coffee, found myself at the Conservatory on a recommendation from my sons. The Conservatory is by far the best place to get a quality, hand crafted cappuccino in all of Los Angeles. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. The staff are...

Best lattes I found in LA thus far. My choice drink is a flat white and travelling in the USA I compensate for either a cappuccino or a latte for my daily grind. Hats off to this place.

I finally made it to the Conservatory for Coffee after being told about how amazing it was by my son. And was it ever! Finally....truly fresh, delicious coffee that is roasted on the premises. Each drink was meticulously hand-crafted and the pastries were fantastic.

I will take the drive to go to this place. They have a parking lot in the back so it is easy to hop in and pick up a fresh, roasted brew with a colleague or friend. Warm ambience from the location and the staff, plus with outdoor seating in a cozy part of Culver. The price is hard to... More

My wife and I recently had read a local magazine about the best coffee shops in Los Angeles and were lamenting about not knowing of any local coffeeshop in Culver City. A quick internet search and we "discovered" The Conservatory. What a quaint place! It is a tiny cafe, nearly possible to walk right by, but the actually roast the... More

LA is full of surprises. This is one of them. Of course LA has its glam enclaves and charming communities but vast stretches are endless miles of low rent, temporal, one story retail outlets (recall characterless strip malls) that represent the rump-side of the American Dream. Well amongst those endless miles of retail is this eclectic yet charming and super... More

As others have said, nothing is better than their fresh roasted coffee. They have a broad selection and will brew any for you. I enjoy trying many and learning what I like. AJ will give you a lesson if you ask. Also, don't miss their iced coffee and pastries - sourced from one of the best bakeries in town.
