    Perhap a good place to be seen in Del Ray, but not for coffee as Foursquare wrongly suggested based on my visit to Swings.

    Their “espresso” isn't espresso. It's just strong-ish coffee.

    I ordered an iced coffee and the woman tried to give me decaf (I watched her pour from the pitcher labeled decaf). She didnt want to get more caf from the back until I insisted.

    Get the fantastic dirty chai. Don't ask for a coffee kozy as they don't believe in them; at least until some corporate entity gives them free ones.
