great coffee variety but often slow

all the usual coffees, with a very nice "flavored" coffee choice available. staff are quite pleasant and helpful, but the service is often quite slow and painful during the morning rush. seems like they always fail to have adequate staffing.

I showed up at 5:30 AM, be posted opening time. I guess they forgot to switch back from daylight savings? Ignore the posted opening times, they aren't accurate. I asked about wifi, got a coffee, left a good tip, and settled in to do emails. A half-hour later I was still trying to get onto the supposedly available free Wi-Fi.... More

Been to this location several times. 5 stars due to the convenient location, decent free wi-fi access, plenty of outlets, friendly stuff and decent drinks. What more can you ask for from a coffee shop? especially a chain one. Certainly beats the Starbucks across the street!

It tends to be a bit crowded at times...but I have seen crazier coffee shops. What else can you say about an upscale coffee shop?

Staying in Santa Monica

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers, roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa Monica pier spins high above the water, while park revelers scream with delight riding the roller coaster. Inland from the beach, Third Street Promenade bustles with shoppers and street performers, where every block seems to have a musical or acrobatic act drawing crowds giving Santa Monica both the feeling of a laid-back beach town and a major commercial hub.
