    What an awesome cafe!!! Totally different from your regular coffee shops in the South Bay. IOTA Brew Cafe is a Korean coffee joint that is ultra modern, with giant TVs, a large selection of coffees, iced shakes, desserts, and a giant wall selection of wines! The pistachio/almond iced shake was wonderful! Very hip, modern, and tasty! Come to this place if you're in LA and are looking for drinks, desserts, and snacks!

    Service has definitely gotten better in the past couple months. Highly recommended are: crepe cake, sea salt caramel latte and various milkshakes!

    Super modern and chic Korean owned cafe in the middle of ktown with a huge assortment of sweets and drinks! I bit overpriced, but you're pretty much paying for the space as this is a great spot for freelancers!

    Good food and pricey teas but awesome atmosphere.
    Loved the design of the place and the wall with all the cups for sale makes the place more artsy. Chillin at this place during the day and working on writing or surfing the Internet makes Starbucks look like school. It's very cool with Korean music videos playin on repeat on the projectors and TVs. Just don't get distracted with looking at pretty Kpop stars. Will drop by this place whenever I feel like getting a cup of tea in Ktown.

    This place is just asking for a gang nam style flash mob!

    The venue is beautiful, there is an outdoor area in the front and a larger outdoor area in the back. It's like a coffee shop version of gaam. They have a clear glass pastry area and there are music videos played on the walls using projectors. I ordered a boba drink, cheese cake, and shaved ice. Unfortunately, everything is below average to me. Also, parking is limited, considering how large this place is.

    Overall, food alone, this place is a 1 to me; however, the venue is gorgeous. There are many better and cheaper options around.

    The lattes here are okay. Kind of bland, I would say. It's a good place to study, though. There are plenty of tables. As long as upbeat K-Pop music doesn't distract you, then you should be fine!

    This place "ROCKS"! It has all the bakery goods and not super sweet has other american bakeries. Perhaps because own by Korean? I like the way is! All very nice and individually wrap up, many selections! Plus they serves other food besides bakery goods & coffee and other drinks. You can always get a delicious bowl of Korean Noodles! Yammm

    I love cakes, teas and smoothies. There is nothing there I like particularly . But it is somewhere that I will still come with my friends.
