Elabrew Is Now the Most Hipster Coffee Shop in Downtown

Third wave coffee hits Downtown hard via Elabrew, which already has a place in Santa Monica

Slotted right across from Cole's on 6th Street in Downtown, Elabrew opened about a month ago on the Semisweet Bakery side of things serving a variety of specialty coffee for caffeine addicts. Rotating between Ceremony, Ritual, and Kuma Coffees, the Third Wave coffee shop serves the pedestrian-heavy corridor with some of the best coffee available in Downtown.

With some cool street-art motifs surrounding the rather dark interior, it's the ideal place for the weary laptop warrior to abscond to, or for the nearby office worker to find a mid afternoon jolt. Iced coffee fans can find cold brew of Kyoto-style drip, while those looking for something to have with their coffee can enjoy either Susina or Semisweet baked goods, depending on the day. Hours run 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. weekdays, and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekends.
