This place serves the best coffee I have ever had, it's vegan friendly and the food is super amazing! If you don't mind standing in a long queue to get seated or served, don't miss it!

Very nice place where they understand the art of coffee. Espresso is espresso and no bowl of soup. Good atmosphere.

From the beautiful building to food and service, it rocked. My brother took the whole family here for an early breakfast. Everyone was happy with their meals. All was fresh and tasty. Loved it! I hope they will keep their poached egg dishes. It was pretty busy, so just be patient and kind. And plan your time accordingly.

While this is one of the best coffee's you'll ever taste, and the food is great too, this Pasadena location has been suffering seriously bad service. On this occasion Management was running around the restaurant making sure everything was going well. It's great to see a restaurant and Management get all over a problem and get it resolved swiftly.

It is a good place to grab a bite but they almost always have long lines. The staff is really courteous and makes the experience more delightful.

At first I was a little concerned about the service because first you have to order and pay and then you can find a place to sit. But the staff is working very fast and they have a lot of space so after couple of minutes we were waiting for food. Great design, awesome location and food....looks and tastes great.... More

A local from LA invited me out to brunch at this cafe on a Saturday and it was packed. It's close to the Arts District in Downtown LA so it is a good starting point if you're looking to walk around (towards Little Tokyo, El Pueblo, etc.). I had the poached eggs with parma ham on toast as well as... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
