"Coffee smells like freshly ground heaven."
- Jessi Lane Adams
Where can you find the best places for coffee in LA? Los Angeles is one of the top cities in the United States to get a cappuccino. With hundreds and hundreds of coffee shops and cafes, from the over 37,000 total in the US, Los Angeles offers more variety and unique experiences for savoring that delicious cup of java than just about anywhere else.
1. La La Land Kind Cafe
Location: 426 Montana Ave #1, Santa Monica CA 90403
La La Land in Santa Monica is one of the newest places on this list and it already feels more "LA" than any of the others. The bright designs and modern vibe really make for a welcoming experience and the customer service is friendly and fast. Might be the best spot in LA to sit and enjoy a coffee under the beautiful sun while you are just close enough (1 mile away) to the ocean to also benefit from the best weather in town.
2. Aroma Coffee & Tea
Location: 4360 Tujunga Ave, Studio City, CA 91604
Ever wanted to drink a cappuccino near the screenwriter of the latest Marvel movie while a wannabe celebrity brags about how he got a new agent to take him to the top? Aroma Coffee & Tea is a charming (and very spacious) cafe environment where you'll encounter a wide mix of artists and professionals. It's one of the most flexible coffee shops. Go there alone, go there with friends, go there on a date, go there for a business meeting...it checks all the boxes.
3. Alcove Cafe & Bakery
Location: 1929 Hillhurst Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90027
Alcove is a great location if you want to pair food with your coffee. In the evening, it has a romantic, date night kind of vibe. They offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as having a full bar (containing some amazing seasonal cocktails).
4. Dialog Cafe
Location: 8766 Holloway Dr, West Hollywood, CA 90069
While this West Hollywood spot might be transforming into a popular place for TikTok influencers and entertainment professionals, their coffee is made to perfection and presented with stunning aesthetics. Their specialty is specialties, from pistachio milk to honey oat cappuccinos, Dialog Cafe has a superb variety of drinks.
5. Urth Caffé

How can you not love a coffee shop whose mission statement is "building a beloved community where everyone belongs and becomes a better version of themselves - one cup, one person, and one neighborhood at a time." Make sure to buy one of their famous floral bouquets designed by celebrity floral designer Maurice Harris.
8. Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea
Location: 1331 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice, CA 90291
Well known in Los Angeles for great coffee, Intelligentsia Coffee & Tea in Venice is a cool spot where many artists and creative professionals gather to chill while sipping an Oat Latte. Parking can be tricky sometimes but their caffeine game is strong.
9. Caffe Luxxe
Location: 225 26th St, Santa Monica, CA 90402
I love the simplicity of Caffe Luxxe. It is luxurious without boasting about it. And it's all about great service that consistently delivers a high-end cup of coffee.
10. Blue Bottle Coffee
Location: 2066 Hillhurst Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90027
One of the best coffee's in town, Blue Bottle Coffee has a specialty menu that is all about delivering quality. It's a tiny spot, so it's not the most work-friendly cafe, but if you want a solid coffee then make sure to check it out.
