Los Angeles Guide
Coffee & Tea
This is the top tier of coffee offerings in the heart of downtown LA, in the Grand Central Marketplace. They don't try to be a all-in-one shop, with roasting their own beans, they just focus on delicious drinks.
A great Los Angeles coffee roaster, smack-dab, in the middle of the LA art district. Grab a cappuccino, and go looking for a Banksy.
Small space, get a reservation, but prepare for some great pizza. They known for not cutting their pizzas because they say it makes the pizza soggy, I'll take their word for it.
I'm cheating a bit here, this is also coffee, and is by the same guys who brought you G&B, but Go Get Em has a much bigger food focus. I can't avoid recommending their sweet potato pie.
