    Amazing espresso coffee, Italian roasted. Prepared and served with care. And paired with a glass of water. Cozy environment, WiFi, kind bartenders. Just a PERFECT experience.

    I wish they had this in SF. It's great and on the same level of SightGlass or Blue Bottle. My go to drink is the almond milk latte. Starbucks lovers this place may not be for you.

    Be warned, no wall outlets to charge your phone/laptop while you work. Restrooms are in the back near the alley, basement level. Ask for the passcode!

    Hot chocolate was the best of the best hot chocolate. It is a real 'Hot Chocolate'.

    Perhaps the best cold brew coffee outside of Cape Town. Their ham and cheese croissant with a smidge of whole-grain mustard is so good, I want to hollow it out and live in it.

    Love the space, great espresso like all the Intelligentsia locations throughout LA. Love how they give you a side of bubbly water with a Macchiato

    When you venture inland & the temp is hotter than midday in the desert, get the iced chai. For some odd reason, it's infinitely better than the hot version.

    They use a reverse osmosis water filtration system and extremely high quality beans. Smooth and delicious coffee and very cool interior design.

    Grab an iced latte here for that extra kick in the AM or for a afternoon pick me up! A great hangout if you're looking to catch up with a friend.

    Accompany a slowly dripped Kenyan with cured-meat plates, including Fra Mani salametti , as well as quite decent prosciutti cured in the restaurant's back room. Read more
