One of the best coffee shops in Los Angeles and worth a visit. Walk down to the Silver Lake Reservoir and stop here after, then check out the surrounding shops on Silverlake Blvd.

Some of the best coffee in Los Angeles! Stroll down to this spot in the morning for an espresso, croissant, and some great people watching!

Total coffee snobs, a bit pricey, but it is a cool scene with lots of unemployed Hipsters or Trust Fund Kids waiting for their blockbuster movie script to hit the big screen.

Doing the right thing - Groundwork Coffee Co. sources USDA certified organic and sustainably grown coffee and tea, paying a premium to the farmers who bring their products to market.

Original Groundworks location, they do the roasting here. Very local spot. Good coffee, plain and simple.

Organic coffee with a Venice vibe. Don't worry about the grumpy old guys sipping their cup of tea outside - they're making sure Venice doesn't lose its spirit and the coffee is worth it!

The very best cold-pressed organic juice you will find in Los Angeles. Located in Venice just a few blocks from the beach.

What makes Moon Juice so magical is that the vegetables, fruits, and leaves are hydraulically pressed between 2 steel plates. This pressing action doesn’t heat or oxidize the produce.

What’s a SoCal surf town without a juice bar? Moon Juice opened a few years ago as one of the first real deal, cold-pressed juice spots in LA. There’s a small cactus garden at the front for sitting...

LOVE this place. If you are going to see the Hollywood sign, make sure to go here for breakfast, lunch or dinner or just for a tea and dessert. Fun trivia night too.

Just inside the gateposts of Hollywoodland, this cafe and the surrounding businesses still carry more than a whiff of old Hollywood. Get a good picture of the sign on your way up Beachwood.

Beachwood Café may be the best-kept secret in Hollywood. The adorable little eatery celebrated its one-year anniversary in March 2013, but it's still largely under the radar.

In the heart of the Noho District... Freshly baked pies are delicious ~ The Dutch apple pie is solid, and the chocolate pecan pie, with its sweet, crisp carapace of toasted pecans is amazing...

Savory or sweet. You will find the pie of your life! Great coffee and comfy couches to lounge on while listening to mellow live music.

Coffee shop and bakery. Both are high quality. The back room offers a little more privacy from the hustle and bustle of the main room.
