Groundworks has been a coffee staple in Los Angeles, based out of Venice, CA for the past 25 years. Over this time, they've been expanding and opening up shops all over the city. This past year they finally made their way to one of my favorite stomping grounds, Larchmont Village, and I've never been happier.
Why they're the best: Friendly staff, cozy and varied seating, a tasty menu AND no upcharge for non dairy milk. Yes, that's right. No additional charges if you choose to have your latte cow free and they have the most non dairy options (soy, almond, hemp, house made cashew!) that I've seen in LA.
Groundworks on Larchmont is the perfect spot for a casual business meeting - which is what I did the other day. Check out my Photo Story below.
