    Coffee is good, although maybe a bit overhyped... Don't think it's worth the price, but service is good and the atmosphere is still pretty cute. The pastries look pretty amazing though.

    Favourite coffee place in LA! For sure. Plus they have Oataly.

    Cozy atmosphere. The baristas here are so nice and highly recommend the lavender hot chocolate. The staff was good. I can't wait to come back again next time.

    It’s the definition of “hipster coffee shop.” The blue-and-white tile and plywood is the backdrop for Silverlake’s coolest crowd. Snag one of the patio’s shaded seats to enjoy your macchiato. Read more

    The tile floor of this is the most eye catching part. But the coffee is why you should go. A lively, and usually busy place. Try one of the seasonal espressos.

    Overrated, temperature was too hot and the flavor was lost probably because it was too busy and they were too quick about it. Ordered the Rwanda brew V60.

    I've found it somewhat too pretentious. Not great for working either, in fact most seats come without a table.

    Uber-trendy. The coffee is prepared with fanatisme, but the success of the place makes it hard for the time pressured baristas to reach perfection. Try to find the moment when it's less crowded. Enjoy

    I must say this coffee shops simply rocks, with vast range of delicious coffees to choose out from. But intake of too much of coffee or tea does have their bad repercussion on our oral health.
