As I was thinking about what to write about next, I realized that my last post makes me sound like an alcoholic. So, to clarify, I’ve made a list of other beverages I thoroughly and regularly enjoy. As a side note, I compiled this list at a cozy little cafe located within the Tom’s shoe store on Abbot Kinney. I love love love this place! It has a very international travel vibe with plenty of nooks to get comfy in. Free wi-fi, great people watching and inadvertent outfit ideas (which ultimately distracts me from writing), yummy coffee and a really good muti-grain muffin. Caveat: It’s near impossible to walk out without a new pair of shoes.
In addition to wine, these liquids are frequently in my body:
Coffee in all varieties — cafe au lait, latte, iced coffee… always in rotation
Root beer — the neatest soda flavor ever (just discovered Zevia’s ginger root beer and it’s pretty darn good for sugarfree soda)
Matcha green tea — the velvety chalkiness of matcha is addictive
PG Tips or Lipton with milk because I grew up drinking tea with milk. It’s in my blood!
Boba tea — I cannot resist those big balls of tapioca making their journey up a jumbo straw
Freshly squeezed OJ — yes, I drink it without the champagne, too
Overpriced pressed juices in most flavors — gone in under a minute but oh so good
LeZinque is also a lovely and cozy cafe/restaurant on Abbot Kinney & Washington in Venice. Wi-fi, nooks, natural light galore, distracting people watching, snacks, caffeine, and happy hour specials (not that I’m concerned with that at all). One annoying thing is all the tables are elevated so it’s hard to bring Miss Luna unless she’s sleeping in her stroller.
One day I’ll get around to writing up my favorite cozy cafes in L.A., not just in Venice!
