Time Out says

With over 800 stores (yep, that's eight. hundred.) around the globe, Caffee Bene is taking over the world (forget Starbucks) and has made its way over to LA. The Seoul-based coffeeshop steps up its coffee game with its own beans and, with its own house-baked waffles, proves that Koreans do love their European desserts. Try topping the classic Belgian waffle with yogurt or cream and fruit, or order up honey bread aka thick, white toast topped with sweet toppings. Wood paneling and bookshelves add homey warmth to the industrial space. A young, Korean crowd fill tables with laptops, notebooks and playing cards. Wifi can be spotty but the on-site parking and valet (only in LA) makes for an easy exit.
