Santa Monica’s specialty coffee- and teahouse brims with Zen-like ambiance and one of the best brewed cups in town. Spacious and peaceful, the strict no-cell-phone policy, free Wi-Fi, power outlets, and classical music allow for streams of consciousness to flow at will. There’s even a water fountain to quiet your senses further. Take a breather with a flavorful java made using the siphon method; it’s delivered to your table or leather sofa on a silver serving tray. Blow your advance on the outrageous $80 cup of rare Kopi Luwak coffee.
