Have you ever walked into a coffee shop and thought, 'Oh look, plenty of space to sit and enough outlets to go around?' Yeah, we thought so. Yet somehow, Dinosaur Coffee has managed to create a near-perfect space that caters to the life of a freelancer without an office. Plenty of seating, outlets galore, and did we mention the coffee (from San Francisco's Fourbarrel Coffee) is solid? It’s on the slightly pricier side, sure, but it more than pays its way in the unlimited hours you are allowed to use Dinosaur’s Wi-Fi (or the free Wi-Fi that comes from the adjacent McDonald’s). A smattering of baked goods are available for purchase as well—the caramel brownie is a highlight—and the shop's modern, Jurassic Park-esque design reminds you that coffee doesn't always have to be serious.

Quality coffee and a cool spot in the heart of a hip area. But unfortunately a bit too expensive in my opinion (though most places like this tend to be). Not a bad spot to grab a cup and read or meet up with friends for some morning coffee to kick off a day in Silverlake/LosFeliz

Dinosaur coffee a buzzy joint, mostly because of its quirky name and aesthetic, and the way that it fits into and reps gentrified Silver Lake—if you’re looking for a place to people watch LA young adults who consider themselves "creative," this is your spot. The coffee itself is made by people who seem to know what they’re doing and on the weekends the Yeasty Boys bagel truck parks out front (it’s always mobbed). I wouldn’t say that this spot is essential, or really stands out in any particular way. But it’s very solid, the baristas are kind, so in the end there's no real reason not to endorse.


From the looks of the crowd here, you'd think Silver Lake and Los Feliz were empty of other options (they're definitely not). People love Dinosaur because the service is friendly, the coffee is good and there's plenty of space (and lots of outlets). You'll always run into someone you know (err, maybe someone you saw on Tinder), and if the wifi goes out, you're in range of the free McDonalds network.
