Coffee roasters, specialty drink cafes, coffee bars, cafes, you name it - downtown Los Angeles has got it. The best part is you don’t have to travel far for a soothing or stimulating cup of coffee.

Although being aesthetically pleasing wasn’t a criteria for our list, we certainly love a good instagrammable moment in-between sips.

With so many great spots in #DTLA to get your latte, cappuccino, americano, or brewed java fix - here are a few places that the Hope + Flower team recommend for your next cup!


Verve Roastery Del Sur. 500 Mateo St., Los Angeles, CA.

Boasting four locations in Los Angeles, our local (and recently opened) Verve Coffee Roasters + Cafe is situated in the LA Arts District. Perk up at 6:30 am or catch them before 8PM close to pick up their notable beans.

A ‘Quick Cup’ comes in at $4.25 while a very inviting Honey Lavender Draft Latte is $5.50. It doesn’t hurt that their menu, designed by former Chopped contestant Mario Tolentino, boasts a mean smoothie and assortment of Verve classics!

868 S Olive Street, Los Angeles, CA 90014, USA

With locations in Culver City and LA’s Fashion District, Cognoscenti Coffee’s founder Yeekai Lim has opened his third shop just below fellow ONNI property, LEVEL. This bright and open space is the perfect spot for catching up on emails to meeting up with friends.

Have your choice of a single cup or an espresso paired with a delicious breakfast sandwich. The inviting and calm interior is waiting for you at an early 7AM until they close at 5PM.

601 S Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90017

With locations in El Segundo and North Manhattan Beach, Two Guns Espresso has settled in nicely at the corner of Figueroa and Wilshire in the Financial District. Dedicated to creating the perfect mid-day premium espresso (their own two-bean blend!) and serving up a mean flat-white, the New Zealand born cafe is about a 8 minute scooter or bike ride from Hope + Flower AND is definitely worth it.

Head over for your morning brew beginning at 7AM or catch them before they close up for the day at 4:30PM, Monday to Friday. With choices ranging from cappuccinos and cold brews to a Dona Masala Chai Latte, Two Guns is MORE than welcomed in #DTLA. Grab a pastry or sandwich to go along with sunny outdoor seating and people watching.

801 S Hope St., Unit A, Los Angeles, CA 90017

Santa Monica, Hollywood, El Segundo, Glendale, Pasadena, Belmont Shore…and DTLA - Hope Street! Can you believe those are just the Philz Coffee locations in Los Angeles?

With an array of light to dark blends sporting inviting names like Canopy of Heaven (Herbs, Citrus, Strawberry), Silken Splendor (Dark Cocoa, Citrus, Butterscotch) and Julie’s Ultimate (Toast, Berry, Vanilla) with flavours to match - Philz is a quick 12 minute walk from Hope + Flower.

Perfect for early risers with a 6AM opening, Philz is also known for specialty drinks that are not espresso-based, including a delicious Mint Mojito iced coffee. Yum!
