Need a cup of coffee? Joining the likes of Caffe Luxxe and Primo Passo on Montana in Santa Monica is Groundwork, which grand opened this morning after a slew of delays. One of SoCal's first certified organic coffee roasters dating back more than two decades, Groundwork Montana encompasses 1,100 square feet with plenty of seating indoors and along 16th Street plus communal tables for more social experiences.
In addition to the usual set of coffee beverages, there's Vietnamese coffee and Mexican hot chocolate, and alternative milks come from almond and hemp. It's worthwhile to note that coffee drinks here are a bit less expensive than Caffe Luxxe and Primo Passo. While Groundwork is charging $3.25 for an 8-ounce cappuccino, Caffe Luxxe prices theirs at $4, as does Primo Passo. Hours of operation run Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturday/Sunday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m.
