If you’re going to LA, you’ll probably find yourself at Venice Beach at some point. And, if you are in that neck of the woods, then I strongly suggest you check out this little coffee gem.

Menotti’s is a local favourite, much-loved for its great coffee, delicious grab-n-go options and fun quirks (the portrait on the wall can be taken off and turned over to reveal a secret menu FYI).

Don’t even think about going without trying one of their generously-size choc chip cookies, they are mind-blowingly good. Ditto their caffe rico – zesty and delicious.

We had;

  • espresso and tonic – double shot of Friendo Blendo espresso, Fever Tree tonic water, and citrus zest
  • caffe rico – double espresso with homemade vanilla syrup, orange zest and a dusting of cinnamon
  • charcoal-ate milk – activated charcoal with homemade chocolate ganache in a shaken hemp chocolate milk with a pinch of salt on top
  • spinach artichoke Danish
  • choc chip cookie
