Best Coffee Spots in Los Angeles, Ranked by Scene

  1. 1.
    Intelligentsia, Sunset Junction
    The ultimate scene. If you lack respect for your own time or self, then go here. If you want to see and be seen, then go here. It'll take an hour to get your coffee then when you do, it's served by a snotty little hipster, and after that, you won't have anywhere to sit and enjoy it. Coffee is damn good though and one time I did get a seat and I watched a boy read Nabokov and smoke a cigarette on the stairs and I kinda fell in love.
