If every great Los Angeles trip starts with a stay at The London Hotel, every great day starts with the perfect cup of coffee… While the property hosts a handful of perfect locations to kick-start and caffeinate your day, we know sometimes you need seconds or thirds!

LA coffee shops have evolved from a caffeine pit stop to a cultural destination, and where you choose to snag a latte can frame your travel days in style. In an effort to help navigate the hottest java spots just a jaunt or two from The London hotel grounds, I have gone ahead and rounded up my favorite institutions for “coffee talk” and the sips that support it! Whether you are looking for well-heeled hipsters to chat organic grinds, the perfect spot for your latte swirl selfie, or to catch celebs getting their daily fix; we have you covered!


#But first….Alfred!
Perhaps the hottest hashtag to enter the LA coffee scene, the Melrose Place outpost is the perfect blend of cozy and cool. With rustic wood floors, pop neon signs and decadent wallpaper prints, this hotspot is selfie central! Being located on one of the coolest retail blocks in Los Angeles just adds to Alfred’s appeal. Java squatters have been known to perch for hours taking in their killer grinds and celeb sightings aplenty.
Mix it up with their tasty coconut white iced tea brew!

Blue Bottle

Blue Bottle is a true study in coffee minimalism.
Their simplistically sophisticated java shops have been expanding globally from NY to LA and SF to Tokyo. If you prefer an excellent few premier choices this is the spot. Expect an artistic and chic set of devotees who enjoy the modern sleek space for an eco-friendly cup to go or stay and play.
Their heady Hayes Valley Espresso is an impressive nod to their San Franciscan roots!

Urth Caffé

Urth Caffé is an LA institution that found a special spot on the small screen as Vinny and the gang’s WeHo “go-to” on HBO’s Entourage.
But the stars shine on for incredible edible fresh bites and organic coffees. Feeling adventurous? Don’t miss their icy blended coffee drinks and boba teas! The double decker patio is the perfect spot to post up with your own entourage!

This pristine coffee shop sits at the top of famed Robertson Blvd. Blink and you could miss it, but don’t.
The interior is modern and minimalist while the brand focuses on sustainable, ethical and responsible sourcing for their products, leaving a great taste in your mouth! Their charming rear patio and their herbal iced teas are a welcome addition to the menu.
Whether you want a quiet respite from bustling Robertson retail therapy or purchasing a sleek cup of Joe “to-go”, The Assembly has you covered!
