    Black Gold's nice & dark. Bold flavor. I'm normally a French Press kind of guy, this was recommended to me by the Very Informative Barista working tonight. Said they have something better Early AM👍

    This is homebase. Food (until 5), good coffee, dependable wifi and outlets make this a moworking staple. The down side is you have a lot of Venice BS that goes on in there, but to each their own.

    Coffee roast is just perfectly right: not too sour not too bitter. Free wifi. Very friendly staff!! Thanks for making my day <3

    Bitches brew pour over and a power bar gave me a mid-afternoon boost. Great service and great coffee. Make sure to go before 2pm if you want food though.

    My favorite Mocha of all time, and you can get it with Almond Milk! Woah nelly! This sweet deal is even better when you use your Fringe Benefits card!

    Delicious local coffee! Really friendly staff :D "It's kinda like being at a bar, but in the morning." A nice place for some AM socializing.

    The iced coffee is not your typical iced coffee! It's a cold brew = no burnt taste, pure coffee aroma and taste with extra strong caffeine! Yum!

    If your a regular of Cappuccino, then skip it and request a flat white (not on the menu) because the milk and espresso balance is far better in comparison from these baristas.

    Be sure to get their phone number so you can put in your order in advance. Gives you more time to hang out and talk.

    Don't be sacred by the look outside. I passed by this place a few times and got scared by the look from outside. I thought it's a torn down place that's not existed anymore. It's very different inside

    A friendly neighborhood cafe! Pick out some beans, and get a free cup of organic coffee with your purchase.

    Grab a handful of napkins if you order your breakfast burrito with chorizo. Then grab another handful, 'cause that first handful isn't gonna cut it.

    Groundwork Coffee has the best organic coffee and tea in town. When in Venice, always worth a stop… Try the Black Gold Coffee or the Caramel Black Tea.
