Coffee Commissary

Copy Link

This Palms coffee shop is a Westside gem with a solid espresso menu and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating to hang around for hours with a laptop. Just be aware that the music is played at a high volume.

Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen

Copy Link

There are cozy nooks all over Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen, so settle in for solid Wi-Fi, lavender lattes, flat whites, and clever breakfast and lunch offerings.

Sip & Sonder

Copy Link

This cafe brings quality coffee and a much-needed gathering space to the neighborhood. The 2,000-square-foot cafe is perfect for those in need of caffeine, easy fare, and a quiet place to work.

Basecamp and High Horse Dinette

Copy Link

Settle into this sunny spot for light bites, caffeinated beverages, and plenty of Wi-Fi. Everyone feels like a regular when the customer service is this good.

Document Coffee Bar

Copy Link

Koreatown is full of coffee bars powered with Wi-Fi, including Document just off Wilshire. Expect long communal tables, great coffee, and a funky atmosphere complete with plastic buckets doubling as light fixtures.

Cognoscenti Coffee

Copy Link

Cognoscenti has shops all over the city, but none is as work-friendly as the location in the Fashion District. With big tables, tall windows, and dependable Wi-Fi, this is the spot for Downtowners to sneak off to during the day, far from the crowds further north.

Highlight Coffee

Copy Link

Glendale's best coffee shop is Highlight, a sunny corner operation that pulls in locals during the morning commute and hip kids with Apple products all day long. Be sure to show up early to guarantee a workspace.

Loquat Coffee

Copy Link

Sister location to much-lauded Kumquat Coffee, this coffee bar’s opening in Cypress Park comes with moody vibes and plenty of room to hang out outside (and a little bit inside). Coffee and pastries here are the ultimate attraction, and, once some of the hype dies down, studying and meetings might be a draw, too.

Patria Coffee

Copy Link

Patria Coffee is perfect for Compton. The community-focused shop not only does the usual assortment of drip and espresso drinks, it also roasts its own beans and hosts special hours for nearby students to come and enjoy the fast Wi-Fi.

Kindness & Mischief Coffee

Copy Link

Born in 2016, this woman-of-color-owned coffee roaster sports a sick cafe to boot. The black sesame latte is a must-try, as are the pastries, including vegan black sesame buns and mooncakes from Miss Moon (which swung through just in time for the Mid-Autumn Festival).

Constellation Coffee

Copy Link

Sleepy La Canada has a hit on its hands with Constellation Coffee. The inviting strip-mall shop not only features a collection of coffees, teas, and pastries worth seeking out, it's also a great destination for anyone looking to escape the bustle of the city and get some work done.

CAR Artisan Chocolate - Manufactory & Cafe

Copy Link

While a chocolate manufacturer at heart, Haris Car’s outlet for his confections is a no-joke chance to caffeinate and rejuvenate any depleted laptop batteries. (Read: there are many, many outlets.) Plus, fleur de sel chocolate chip cookies are brain food, right?

CAR Artisan Chocolate

Rosebud Coffee

Copy Link

Pasadena’s Rosebud Coffee is a great place to work as a group. With big tables, blazing Wi-Fi, and lots of sunlight, it’s almost impossible not to get some important projects completed. It helps, too, that the shop has a do-good element that helps raise money for homeless youth in Los Angeles.

Rosebud Coffee

Teofilo Coffee Company

Copy Link

Ronald Dizon’s Filipino coffee importing and roasting business has become much more than a mere coffee shop to its fans. With its Wu-Tang-themed blends and vegan bibingka, his shop is a homecoming for many young Filipinx folks. (There’s a Long Beach outpost, too.)

Fika Fika

Copy Link

With nicely spaced-out tables, mellow tunes, and interesting drinks, Fika Fika is the kind of place where locals go to escape it all. As a bonus, there’s also popcorn chicken and panini sandwiches in case one gets hungry.
