Some say that love makes the world go round. We at Upper Ivy Culver City apartments for rent would argue against that. Or maybe add to that and include coffee. Coffee fuels our fires and soothes our souls all at the same time. Name something else that can do the same thing. While we wait for you to come up with an answer, dive into our favorite coffee shops in Los Angeles.

The Best Coffee Shops in Los Angeles

Philz Coffee

Let’s start this list in our very own backyard. Just around the corner from our apartments for rent in Culver City at the Culver Steps is Philz! There is a lot of heart and soul that goes into the brews and teas over at Philz. They are known for their drip, and they go the extra mile to give you maximum flavor. They specialize in customizable blends, but their Tresora is a must-try.


Coffee comes in many forms. Iced, hot, and sometimes it comes with predominantly cream and sugar. However, those who are partial to something simple, cold, and traditional will love Neighborhood on La Brea. Specifically, their cold brew. Neighborhood also serves up excellent iced lattes.

Bluestone Lane

The coffee shops on La Brea continue with Bluestone Lane. This boutique coffee shop chain is a quick drive from your Upper Ivy apartments and should sound familiar. Bluestone offers excellent food. The most notable being their gluten-free avocado toast. Back to their coffee. We are big fans of the cold brew float and their cappuccino.


When it comes to trendy decor, Alfred has all of the coffee shops in Los Angeles beat. Apparently, they coined the phrase “But First, Coffee.” Whether that is true or not, you cannot deny the vibes of this Los Angeles coffee shop near your Culver City apartments. The closest one to us is on Melrose. Their coffee selection is just as memorable. We suggest keeping an eye out for their monthly specials. As far as their permanent selection goes, their matcha tea is a must-try.
