Bru Coffeebar is your friendly neighborhood coffee shop that's a little older, a little wiser, and a lot more chic—and it just happens to serve some of the most thoughtful cups of coffee in LA. All the coffee is single-origin and direct trade, the teas are high quality, and each cup is made to order. The shop has been a Los Feliz Village mainstay for years, and though its minimalist look and decidedly un-plush seating doesn't scream "this is the place to relax with a cup of coffee," don't be intimidated. The staff is friendly, the pastries and snacks are delicious, and the location is key: Bru is right across the street from House of Pies and just up Vermont from Skylight Books. Just sayin'.

P.S. Wi-Fi is free, but there are no outlets for a laptop recharge.

Bru Coffeebar is a little fancy for the neighborhood—modern, minimalist and sparse—but the coffee is fantastic and the tea selection is massive. Snagging a seat can be a little tricky on a weekend afternoon and the seats are a tad uncomfortable outside, but I just might be picky. Bonus: it's close to Jeni's, so an ice cream cone post-coffee is mandatory.
