    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.

    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

    Get the iced Himalayan Green tea. On a hot day it definitely hits the spot w/o making you feel like you're on crack.

    Savor every sip, right down to the red star at the bottom of the cup. This is coffee as God intended it (literally -- best espresso I've found since Rome).

    You know what? I have to say it: the hype surrounding this place is all fluff. Nice place, but the coffee is average at best. You think this is good? Try Philz in San Francisco. Game, set, match.

    The lines are really only bad in the middle of the day. And let's face it, if you're here in the middle of the day you should probably spend all this free coffee buying time job hunting. Slacker!
