    Brewing coffee 👌🏼👌🏼

    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.

    That chai latte though...

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

    Coffee strong enough to have you shaking like this chihuahua. Good stuff man.

    Ultra-modern hip coffee shop. The coffee is perfect every single time. Great coffee of all sorts and a good select of snacks in a nice space. Expect long lines but worth the wait.

    Definitely a scene here, but it's a damn fine cup of coffee, perfect for sipping while window shopping in all of the fancy boutiques.

    Jessie Forer · December 3, 2014
  • Francisco A.

    Good coffee and muffins. Bad doughnuts.

    Francisco Arteaga · November 29, 2014
  • Gregol G.

    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

    Gregol Gratis · November 4, 2014
  • Jo L.

    Well obviously the coffee is amazing. But I like mine at home too. BeanGenius mails me intelligentsia personalized to my tastes. Options!

    The Super Over-Hyped coffee shop that all the hipsters talk about! And I must say, they know their coffee. Well done hipsters. well done.

    Drink fancy coffees and espresso and chai lattes from hipster baristas in the hipster heartland of LA: silver lake.

    Coffee is always satisfying and the mosaic floors are the best on this side of town.

    Open surprisingly late - great spot for an after dinner cafe au lait - plus, no crazy long line late afternoon-evenings
