Best cafe The Aussie Bean in los-angeles for 2016

Australian Style Coffee including the fairdinkum Flat White, Short Black and Long Black all in traditional Aussie serving sizes.

Amazing coffee and food. Staff are super friendly and helpful 👌🏽 definitely a little piece of Australia hidden in Los Angeles. They even put Vegemite on the smashed avo!

#2

Recreational

Long Beach

Best cafe Recreational in los-angeles for 2016

Certainly does the job, but not worthy of all the other comments. At best, it’s a standard coffee shop with pretty good coffee. They do not differentiate between a flat white, cappuccino, Gibraltar and cortado which to me is not a good sign.

#3

The Refinery

Santa Monica

Best cafe The Refinery in los-angeles for 2016

Damn. Really wanted to check this place out. But it's CLOSED :(

Best cafe Menotti's in los-angeles for 2016

Delicious, delectable, dapper coffee! Check this place out for sure. It's a winner!

Went along with the Beanhunter high rating and wasn’t disappointed. Lovely little cafe near the beach. Very sociable guy taking the order. Tried the ‘Venice Beach Cappuccino’ which I found a little sweeter than my usual tastes but still one of the best I’ve tried during my California vacation.

Best cafe Intelligentsia Coffee (Venice, CA) in los-angeles for 2016

Pretty good for an American coffee (i.e. way better than Starbucks), but you can't select the size for a latte, so it comes in a 12oz cup as standard. A good option if you are in the area.

What a cool place! Love the layout and style. Nice and smooth flat white. Definitely check this place out.
