I had the iced caramel latte. It was good. The pretzel sandwich was decent. My favorite is the BLT. Very cute place.

If you want a great breakfast sandwich and awesome coffee and you want to get away from the "traps" on Highland or Vista, this is the spot. Crowded and lively for a reason. I had the pretzel bun breakfast sandwich; pesto, fried egg, arugula, and ham. The wife had the salmon toast that they were kind enough to make an... More

For someone serious about coffee, this is the place to go in Manhattan Beach. Food was simple but delicious and quick. The line gets out the door at peak hours, but it moves along nicely and staff are very good at what they do.

Not a big spot and there's a line here for reason. Those that know will gladly wait. Plenty of staff to manage the crowd so the wait isn't long. Staff is fun and polite. Coffee is great and their food offerings are really good for breakfast and lunch. They do have about 4-5 tables inside with a couple more outside... More

Small space and very popular. 5-6 people waiting for spots to sit down. Aesthetically the interior and exterior a bit flat? for place that serves great coffee.

Stopped by today, tried the bullet and it's pretty awesome. Since they were out of mint, I opted for caramel and then whole milk. Simply loved it!

If you are visiting the area you will probably be satisfied by the coffee here. Despite that good coffee hasn't really come about in the USA in a big way this shop bucks the trend a bit with staff that take care and know how to make good espresso. Atmosphere not great here and food not on par with the... More

Without a doubt the best coffee in Sth LA!! After many failed attempts elsewhere in the area, we squeezed in a desperation trip to Two Guns before we were to fly back to Australia. The aroma itself was convincing but to treat my tastebuds to some strong, but not bitter espresso was worth the effort. Call me a coffee snob... More

Description
Two Guns Espresso was founded by two Kiwis who wanted to bring New Zealand's coffee culture to the South Bay of Los Angeles. Located in the Goat Hill Center on Sepulveda Blvd, they transformed the western-style building into a light and modern space, with a shiny La Marzocco machine and a giant painting of Dirty Harry. Two Guns is proud to serve their own premium espresso, a two-bean blend developed with Dillanos Coffee Roasters. Expect dark chocolate sweetness with candied pecan and hints of dried fruit. Join them soon for their signature drink "the flat white" and in the words of Dirty Harry, let the friendly baristas "Make your day".
