You don't come to Blue Bottle Coffee for the WiFi (there is none). You don't come for the pastries (there are only a few options displayed under a glass case). You come for the coffee, for the Blue Bottle brand that started in Oakland and, after spreading throughout both coasts, has now planted itself in the former space of Handsome Coffee Roasters. But fans of Handsome Coffee shouldn't shun the newcomers. The small but curated menu caters to its Downtown Arts District clientele with shots of dense espresso and a few options for drip coffee and cold brew. Oh yeah, and about that cold brew: the New Orleans variety, which Blue Bottle has managed to box up in cute milk cartons à la elementary school cafeteria-style and sell across the country, is a solid option here, at once creamy and bitter, and a great introduction into the cold brew craze.

The best coffee in LA!  I always try to hit up this place when I'm in the Arts District.
