When I dine in I like real coffee in real cups. If I choose to go to Starbucks I accept that I will get paper cups. The coffee at Un- Urban was too weak & with a polystyrene after taste. That place needs a big overhaul. Give it a miss ..

Great coffee, hip building (a bit run down, but I think that is part of the charm), interesting neighborhood. Seems to have an active (mostly female) community that meets there regularly (in a back room). Easy walk from Travelodge. Neat (but inconspicuous) French pastry shop nearby.

I always make this the first place I go when visiting Santa Monica from Montana, and lo and behold, the firend serving me had parents living not 2 miles from me! Wow great cup of coffee and a new friend, does life get much better?

A local landmark that is an acquired taste, little more casual than I need first thing in the morning.
