Great coffee, hip building (a bit run down, but I think that is part of the charm), interesting neighborhood. Seems to have an active (mostly female) community that meets there regularly (in a back room). Easy walk from Travelodge. Neat (but inconspicuous) French pastry shop nearby.

A local landmark that is an acquired taste, little more casual than I need first thing in the morning.

The Unurban is a neat-o little cafe with a great atmosphere and friendly people. Their tea is very yummy, and they have a good selection of sandwiches / soups / bakery stuffs. Lots of outlets for your laptop (free wifi) and comfy furniture; a great place to stop and relax.

The atmosphere here is all about supporting creativity. There's lots of art on the walls, mismatched furniture, and maybe best of all, electrical outlets all over for laptop users. You want to hear what kind of music the locals are making in Santa Monica and West L.A.? Drop by for one of the coffee houses' frequent open mics. Check out... More
