Time Out says

Espresso Cielo does not employ, in their words, Rockstar Baristas—you know, the java know-it-alls who look down on you for adding a packet of Splenda to your cappuccino. Instead, they share their knowledge of coffee and tea to anyone who asks, offering suggestions if you need a little nudging. Cielo whips up your standard offerings using 49th Parallel coffee (lattes, cappuccinos, espressos); their larger portions are served in huge cups that look less like mugs and more like bowls. And for tea drinkers, a cup of Pacific Coast mint tea is perfect for foggy Santa Monica mornings. Free Wi-Fi and ample indoor and outdoor seating make this a spot conducive to hanging out for hours on end.
