Coffee & Tea
Handsome has the perfect coffee shop equation down pat. They're doing all that needs to be done in way of appealing to the beard-toting, caffeine-induced gentlemen (and ladies, obviously) of Los Angeles. What's not to love about a good cup of coffee on a perfectly sunny day in L.A? Just like everywhere else in this town, the baristas at Handsome Coffee Roasters are actually very good looking. Take note: they roast their beans onsite making for a delicious cuppa.
This place represents many of the reasons why I love L.A. You'll be packed in with a lot of adventurous tourists, snooty Beverly Hills housewives, and a celebrity or two. I usually see _someone_ when I'm here. Tables are pretty competitive almost always, but the staff does a great job of shuttling people in and out while not making you feel too uncomfortable. I thoroughly love their coffee and tea beverages as well as the food here. I specifically love their many tea lattés, especially the Moroccan Tea Latté. If you happen to go for lunch, try the tamales!
