    This small, but trendy coffeeshop is right on main street borderlining two popular LA neighborhoods, SM and Venice. The coffee is good, not spectacular, better than Starbucks, but the atmosphere is the draw. Its charming interior makes it a great place to read, study, or meet up with friends for a chat in the afternoon. Since it's small, it can be crowded in the weekend. Also, because of its location you can see celeberties there. I spotted Conan O'brien stopping by in full cycling gear to get a drink.

    There are 8 coffee houses within shouting distance at this point of Main Street, but this one has the highest quality coffee.

    What makes this cafe unique?

    The focus on both quality and atmosphere. There is a real focus on well made espresso based drinks and a couple of different pour over coffee options, along with a good selection of tea.

    This place really feels like a cafe in comparison to a lot of the more corporate options out there. It's well designed, with a large marble bar and tables, along with blue porcelain cups for drinks. There are a number of small tables both inside and outside, as well as bar with a great view of the street.

    This is my favorite coffee spot in South Santa Monica, especially when I want a really good drink. The cappuccinos are great, just like Blue Bottle Coffee (San Franciscan's should get this comparison).
