    When you come across a big red arrow that reads "COFFEE", you follow it. It could be a trap, but you have to take that chance. Glad that I did. Great place.

    They serve Portland's Stumptown Roasters and serve an absolutely amazing soy latte. Friendly staff, free wifi, chill environment. If you want an Iced Coffee, go to Deus ex Machina down the street.

    Joshua Van Dyk thinks this place is one of the best coffee shops in Mar Vista. It is very Zen. Joshua Van Dyk was there the other day doing some work that they played meditation music - great 4 work!

    They no longer have decaf drip coffee! 😂 But you can get a decaf pour-over for $4.50.

    Great baristas. Everything is done right & served at the correct temperature. Love that they sell Stumptown. Plenty of cosy indoor & shaded outdoor seating.

    Good espresso. Fun crew. Don't try to park in the back! It says Customers Parking you will be stuck 20+min if the owner chooses to block your car with his. No apology. No more Venice Grind either.

    The large latte has 4 shots of espresso. That's why it's so expensive. Totally excessive, but pretty damn good.

    Best chai in town. Get a large with almond milk. Delish... Service is friendly. Baristas are slow so jut prepare for that.... Worth the wait.

    Great neighborhood coffee house/cafe that is a refreshing alternative to the often pretentious cafés in its namesake.

    Not very friendly. The wifi wasn't working and numerous people brought it their attention. They wouldn't restart router bc they were "busy", which they clearly weren't. No one was in line.

    Don't stop here if you are in a hurry. Check that don't stop here! Now waiting 15 min for a latte. No matter how good their coffee might be this is ridiculous!!!!

    No cheaper refill price on self-serve drip. 2.25 for the first cup, 2.25 for the second. Sadface.

    It's not on the menu, but ask them to make an ice blended, called a Grinder, on a warm day.
