    Lovely spot to sit and do work, unlike the one on Sunset. Sidenote: Witnessed Tobey Maguire today... and made me smile.

    The iced Angelina or the machiato are amazing, but you can't go wrong with anything from Intelligentsia.

    get a double shot of black cat espresso. doctor it with raw turbinado sugar. stir for a while. drink, then finish with the short glass of sparkling water the barista provides.

    The atmosphere is ok but there are not many tables which is not ideal for working on a laptop.

    Very hipster place. It was too crowded for my taste, we had to be wait in line for about 30 min or so, and we didn't even like our coffee that much.

    Love this place. Went for the first time with fantastique CD/producer Christianne. "Ahhhh," I thought. "I really AM back on LA. The part I like best, in fact!" Going again today.

    Order the Angeleno- it's not on the menu. It's an iced latte shaken with simple syrup. Frothy and a little sweet. Mmm

    Much preferred to the Silver Lake location. A perfect shot of espresso without a side of pretension is just my cup of tea.

    This place is such a scene, not worth your time or money. Go to Abbot's Habit on the next block and support a real coffee shop.
