  • Best Coffee Shops in L.A.




With the busy lifestyle of Los Angeles, coffee is a necessity to get us through the day. Here is a list of the best coffee shops throughout the area that are perfect for your morning cup or afternoon pick-me-up:

Café De Leche – Pasadena

This lovely blue-toned coffee shop is set up like a living room and serves Rockenwagner pastries and bagels, Stumptown coffee and their signature creamy horchata con espresso.

Alfred Coffee & Kitchen – Beverly Hills

But first, coffee. Swing by this trendy celeb favorite for a cold brew made from Stumptown coffee beans and a strawberry & almond croissant. There is usually a line, but it is definitely worth the wait!

Cafecito Organico – Silver Lake

Hang out on the pet-friendly patio with chatting with friends, catching up on work, and sipping on a warm Espresso Clandestino. The small, quiet spot is a perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of L.A.

Republic of Pie – North Hollywood

Located in the heart of NoHo Arts District, this coffee shop will remind you of Central Perk from a TV show “Friends”, with its cozy couches, live music, and fantastic selection of coffee served in lovely coffee mugs. Finally, ordering a pie is an absolute must! After all, it is the Republic of Pie. 

 Bourgeois Pig – Franklin Village

This Bohemian late-night coffee shop is perfect for a date night! Enjoy their great selection of coffee and pastries, free WIFI, and a magical jungle-themed back room. 

Dogtown Coffee – Santa Monica

This surfer-friendly spot is a perfect fit for the laid-back vibes of the Santa Monica neighborhood. Try the signature drink, the sea-salted caramel latte, for a salty afternoon pick-me-up, or grab a cold smoothie to sip on while walking on the beach. 

Aroma Coffee & Tea Company – Studio City

This previous private home has been renovated into a chic restaurant and café that features French-American fare. Grab a coffee and pastry and relax on the back patio, or round up a group of friends and enjoy a delicious brunch.
