This well-known coffee shop has become synonymous with high-quality coffee and carefully crafted – if at times somewhat pretentious – beverages, and it remains the most reliable spot for a good, more often great, cup of coffee. What really catapults it to the top is its slow bar in its Venice shop on Abbot Kinney, which allows baristas to curate their own coffee and serve it for one week. The café also has locations in Silver Lake and Pasadena, and its roasts are brewed at locations throughout the city, including The Fix in Echo Park and Paper or Plastik in the Mid-City.
