Time Out says

As one of LA's most reputable coffee chains (with locations in Hollywood, Santa Monica, Downtown, West LA and Venice), Groundwork in Venice on Rose sells beach-going Angelenos organic, custom-blended coffee to start their day. A favorite among regulars, the Bitches Brew is their darkest roast, and leaves a smokey aftertaste long after the cup is empty. Single origin variations come from all over—Brazil, Ethiopia, Mexico, Peru—while their latest addition, a cold brew coffee, has become so popular that its also sold in bottles for wholesale. At the Venice location, seating is scarce—then again, there's nothing like sipping on a good cup of coffee at the beach.

I love their coffee! I'm a huge fan of their Mexican mocha, iced of hot. They also have delicious chais, vanilla lattes and flavorful, rich roast drip coffees. There are also options for pastries - I always have to have at least one. For those interested, they carry vegan and non-vegan options. If Venice is too far: they've now expanded as far as NoHo (SFV), Downtown LA and the Hollywood area.

Best local hang out for the past 25 years! Even though they've done upgrades over the last few years, the ethos has stayed the same. This is real, authentic Venice vibes, y'all!


I love buying beans at Groundwork, but if I'm stopping for a drink, I usually go for the Tiger Chai. It's spicy, not too sweet and just as good iced as hot.
