We visited Groundwork Coffee Company’s great location downtown, where there is spacious cafe seating indoors and out, as well as ample workspace with free wi-fi. Excellent already, but it doesn’t stop there: Groundwork’s Coffee is absolutely delicious, and fair trade + organic to boot. They also offer an extensive, exotic tea selection for the coffee-naysayers! The pries are not the usual “organic overpriced,” but thankfully quite low for a quick pick-me-up in the middle of the workday.
We also tried their baked-in-house vegan pumpkin muffin, which was a perfect accompaniment to a soy latte, and noticed that they also offer affordable, fresh, breakfast and lunch items like breakfast sandwiches (all day!), bagels, salads and sandwiches, most for under $5. Highly recommended for excellent coffee, and that’s coming from a picky coffee snob! Other locations include Hollywood and Venice, so you can enjoy organic, affordable coffee made locally in LA from a company committed to sustainable business practices and community involvement–so you’re getting far more than a perfect cup o’ Joe!
