Best coffee in LA by a long shot. Vibey shop and professional staff. As a lover of coffee it immediately obvious when the baristas know how to properly clean the machine that inevitably gives the coffee a much smoother, silkier finish. Well done!!! ☕️

Having had a coffee that was just okay at The Butcher’s Daughter, we needed something with more depth of flavour and complexity. While there is an air here of “we know we are good” I’ll take it. The coffee is world standard and years ago...More

If you’re after a good, solid coffee, espresso/European style then head to here. Never misses. Service is excellent also. Proper coffee! Food selection could do with some expansion...

We had superb coffees and pastries here! There were few savoury options but the pies are to die for. The layout of this coffee shop was confusing at first but we figured it out and it was a great spot to sit, sip and people...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
