Is this the best coffee in LA? For our money, yes. The place is certainly more of a restaurant than an all-day hang, but come here any day of the week and you’ll see a solid mix of laptops and groups of friends catching up. The food is simple but good, the wifi is free, and you can usually scrounge up an outlet too.
