If cappuccinos and lattes are not satisfying your caffeine-fix, pour yourself a cuppa tea at Marcelita L'Art et le The. Filled with orchids and artsy photographs, this under-the-radar So Cal haven has just added an array of drinks and snacks to their menu. From Moroccan mint to holiday berry green, the selection is boundless—and we're loving it. The adorable little gallery-esque space, which is own by cutesy couple Marcela Mumet and Michel Robba, has simple bistro tables that are perfect for a mid-afternoon tea time with friends. After you've raised your glasses and filled your tummies, you can shop the store for some one-of-a-kind vintage finds, and a glance at their moss-covered bicycle. One thing's for sure, you'll never hit up a Starbucks again!
