Walk through the big glass doors at Lo/Cal, a new coffee shop and market on Pico, and you'll be greeted with the smell of Stumptown coffee brewing. But don't automatically ask for a hot cup—their cold brew on tap uses nitrous oxide, giving this fan favorite a creamy, beer-like texture (fill up a 64 oz. growler to go if you can't get enough in-store). Shelves are lined with goods from Lemon Bird and Isabella's Cookie Company, as well as a solid selection of fresh juices and retro sodas. Snag one of the few spots inside or grab a pastry and coffee (the Art of Tea is also on hand, for all you tea drinkers) for a morning stroll down Pico.

Its kinda half assed coffee with a trendy environment. But eh. It's better to go to groundworks in Venice on Rose or on Montana in Santa Monica they make their own unique roasts over there and they're an original coffeeshop that the community has loved for sometime.
