A neighborhood-by-neighborhood guide to a few solid coffee shops in Los Angeles. Hopefully, it's more helpful than yet another listicle.

That said, this is not comprehensive, nor is it intended to be. It covers a big chunk of L.A. -- Santa Monica, Hollywood, Silver Lake, Echo Park, San Gabriel Valley, etc. -- but not all of it (yet). It's a work in progress and hopefully always will be. 

I write about food and coffee and Los Angeles for various outlets (L.A. TimesLucky PeachL.A. Weekly) and I co-wrote L.A. Son: My Life, My City, My Food with Roy Choi and Natasha Phan. Questions/comments/did I spell something wrong? Hit me up on Twitter or send me message.
