Part UCLA student study haven, part young couple crowd, this Westwood Village cafe standby serves all kinds of coffee, confections and pastries in a cozy atmosphere. We know, the pastries are really distracting, but the espresso menu is extensive. You'll find traditional offerings, plus frozen coffee drinks and smoothies too. But back to the pastries. Flakey butter croissants, decadent chocolate cheesecake and fruit tarts are baked from scratch daily. There's Wi-Fi too, and you're more likely to find a seat here than at any of the Village's other coffee shops. If you happen to be there at the end of the day, be extra courteous to the staff—they give away their surplus of fresh pastries (score!).
