1. Document Coffee Bar

@ document_coffee_bar

Order a cup of coffee and take time to appreciate the wall of portraits at Document Coffee Bar! Not only do they make  drinks with amazing flavors, but also they add value in their space by displaying Angeleno artists’ work with different themes, such as the BLM movement. For drink suggestions, we recommend cafe horchata or Document cold brew.

Document Coffee is best to get an after-lunch coffee to-go. 

2. Alchemist Coffee Project

@alchemistcoffee

There are two locations of Alchemist Coffee Project in Koreatown, LA. Inside the cafe, there is a long table where you could get your work done or read a bit while sipping your cup of coffee. The drinks and bakery items are not too sweet but flavorful, which is the best thing about this cafe.

We suggest getting a cold brew or a cup of lavender latte, with a slice of new york cheesecake.  Vegan blueberry coffee cake or gluten-free financier are also excellent dessert choices, too. 

3. Coffee Signal

Coffee Signal has several tables and outlets in which you could charge your laptop while working and getting your work done. It is also a perfect place to just have a chat with friends with a cup of coffee.

We highly recommend getting their cold brew or iced mocha latte.
