Anyone who knows me, KNOWS I can’t live without my cafecito. You probably do not want to talk to me before I have my morning coffee and I definitely have certain times of the day where I have my routine espresso for a little pick me up. I am aware I drink way too much coffee, but it is something I truly enjoy and can’t imagine my days without it lol. Many people get hooked on the caffeine, which in reality my body has probably become accustom to, but I genuinely enjoy the taste of great coffee. I like the real deal, hole in the walls and finding gem spots. I have been to coffee shops all over the world. I live in Los Angeles, so I definitely have my usual spots I go to on a daily basis to grab a quick cup of java, do some work or my spots I enjoy when I need a little break. I listed my fav LA gems below and my orders at each. Enjoy!
VERVE (Melrose & 3rd Street)
I love bringing my laptop here to do work outside at the Melrose location. It’s the cutest coffee shop with outdoor seating. Since we have always have great weather in LA, I love working outside than in my office!
My Order: Hot or Iced Soy Latte with cinnamon powder stirred in.
*They have vegan pastries from Erin McKenna’s bakery which I love since I am dairy free! Try the vegan donuts or breads (so yummy!)
AHARON COFFEE (Beverly Hills)
They are so kind here and will literally make you anything you want! They also have really yummy and cool drinks they are known for!
My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte with a cinnamon boost and 1 oz sugar free vanilla & add an extra shot.
GREENDOOR (Beverly Hills)
Their coffee is sooo good here! Definitely one of my favs. They also have yummy breakfast foods like the avocado toast and salads!
My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte with lots of cinnamon
CONSERVATORY CAFE (WEHO)
Definitely another fav of mine! I loved their iced lattes. They also have breakfast burritos that everyone claims to be so yummy! (Still need to try). They have seating outside, but it is mainly a walk up shop. I come here so often for my afternoon pick me up!
My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte
SHAKY ALIBI (Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles)
They are known for their homemade waffles. They are SO GOOD! They are my splurge/ cheat day item every now and then. Their coffee is also next level.
My Order: Iced Oat Milk Latte
NESPRESSO (Beverly Hills)
I have a Nespresso machine at my place that I use to make my morning coffee everyday. I love their Roma, Dulsao and Vanilla pods, as well as their Vertuo double espresso pods! I come in to this location for afternoon coffee with my mom and sister a lot!
My Order: Hot Oat Milk Latte with lots of cinnamon stirred in!
LA COLUMBE (Beverly Hills)
I grab my morning coffee at work here pretty much everyday because it is around the corner. I love that they have hemp milk here, which is my favorite milk alternative!
My Order: Hemp Milk Latte or Cold Brew with a splash of hemp milk.
ALFRED COFFEE (Beverly Hills)
I get coffee here a lot too when I’m working nearby. They are known for their iced vanilla lattes, so you have to try them!
My Order: Iced Vanilla Latte with oat milk and only 1 pump of vanilla.
THE GARDEN BAR @ THE MONTAGE HOTEL (Beverly Hills)
I love this lounge and enjoying an afternoon coffee here! They have small bites and desserts that are so yummy too! If I am trying to stay healthy, I order their fruit plate. If I have a sweet tooth, I definitely get their cookies or grilled peaches with cream (so good!)
My Order: Soy Latte with cinnamon steamed in the milk
