Portfolio Coffeehouse

EatLA-832

WHY Excellent espresso, properly foamed cappuccinos, free WiFi and a stylishly studious vibe. WHAT The hub of life in the Broadway Corridor neighborhood, Portfolio wraps around the corner of 4th and Junipero near some fun vintage shops. The back room is filled with headphone-wearing people on laptops; the front room is chattier and has PCs [...]

Primera Taza

WHY A place to hang in bitchin’ Boyle Heights. WHAT This funky, rather cramped coffeehouse is emblematic of the gentrification of Boyle Heights (in case you didn’t know, it’s the new Echo Park, which in turn was the new Silver Lake only yesterday), thanks in part to the newish Metro station out front. It has [...]

Abbot’s Habit

EatLA-232

WHY Mellow vibe, good coffee, amusing people-watching. WHAT Try for a coveted sidewalk table at this funky (think Berkeley in the ’70s) place in the heart of ultra-hip Abbot Kinney. Or check out the two inside rooms, where you can grab a sandwich or settle in for the afternoon with a laptop or sketchbook. WHO [...]

M Street Coffee

EatLA-1214

WHY Nice people, good organic coffee, smoothies and chai, copies of the L.A. Weekly and free WiFi. WHAT A bright yet soothing space done in earth tones makes for a comfortable spot to sit with a cappuccino or an iced chai latte. Interesting art-for-sale, too. WHO Writers, artists, friends meeting to chat quietly and assorted [...]

North End Caffé

EatLA-1131

WHY The best takeout coffee in the area and, if you have time to sit down and eat, very good food, too. WHAT This is not really a place to sit with just a cup of coffee and linger—the people waiting for a table for breakfast or lunch will look daggers at you—but it’s a [...]

Stir Crazy

EatLA-703

WHY A mellow (despite the name) hangout with good coffee and smoothies. WHAT A friendly neighborhood coffeehouse with free WiFi, lots of Laptop People, dogs (and smokers) on the patio and good coffee made until 1 a.m. on weekends. WHO Writers and locals who want to look like writers, tapping away on their MacBooks while [...]

Lamill

EatLA-706

WHY For an obsessive approach to perfect coffee, made in a Clover or tableside via Chemex, served in the swankiest coffee shop in town. Excellent cold-brewed iced coffee, too. WHAT Is it a coffeehouse or a restaurant? The answer seems to be the latter, thanks to the menu by consulting chef Michael Cimarusti (Providence). But [...]

Intelligentsia Venice Coffeebar

EatLA-1453

WHY So you can be greeted by your own personal barista. WHAT When this offshoot of the Chicago-by-way-of-Silver-Lake coffeehouse opened on Abbot Kinney, you’d have thought the Obamas themselves were pulling espressos from the Synesso machines. Coffee geeks walk into this light-filled industrial space and begin hyperventilating at the sight of the Mazzer grinders and [...]

Cafecito Orga‡nico

EatLA-1623

WHY A mellow alternative to Silver Lake’s over-caffeinated coffee scene. WHAT Housed in a faux-lighthouse building on none-too-gentrified Hoover Street, this place started selling organic fair-trade beans at local farmers’ markets before opening the café. With free WiFi, a large covered patio and baked goods from Echo Park’s Delilah Bakery, it’s a funky and calm [...]

The Juice Fountain

EatLA-1920

WHY For an all-fruit smoothie with a side of Hollyweird. WHAT At this tiny, family-run juice joint, a hand-painted menu covers one wall, bananas hang everywhere, and the place smells fresh and fruity. The cantaloupe smoothie is surprisingly great, but the Pink Cloud (strawberry, banana, milk, and honey) is a sure bet. Stick around with [...]
