Best New Coffee Shop Los Angeles 2013 

G&B Coffee

Former Intelligentsia employees Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski — that's the "G" and "B," respectively, in G&B Coffee — have had a busy year, opening not just one but two coffee shops within the span of just a few months. While their second shop, Go Get Em Tiger, is a swell, sleek shop on Larchmont, it's their Grand Central Market spot that might be the most exciting coffee bar in the city at the moment, a long, freestanding bar that greets you if you enter the market from Hill Street. You walk up to said bar, flag down a kind barista as you would a bartender, order an excellent cup of coffee, and then hang out, Angels Flight at your back, Sarita's, Roast to Go and the bustle of Grand Central Market before you. It feels like a great coffee shop. It feels like Los Angeles. 324 S. Hill St., dwntwn. gandbcoffee.com. —Tien Nguyen
