The Best Damn Cup Of Coffee In L.A.

To put it in simple terms, the first week of the year is like a five-day hangover from December's non-stop holiday binging. We're going through withdrawals of eggnog, gift-wrapping, and making any excuse to wear something really sparkly, as we're sitting in front of our computers. If this week has been as much of a rocky transition back to the workday world, then you definitely need to hit up Kings Road Cafe. Situated in a semi-hustlin' and bustlin' street in L.A., you'll find the most amazing pick-me-up cup of Joe (that complements all those fresh-baked goodies to perfection). Sure, places like Intelligentsia and Caffe Luxxe have fancier espresso and foamy drinks, but the plain old drip at KRC is hands-down the best the city has to offer. So if you're in need of a classic, no-fuss mugful of caffeine to ricochet you into 2011, then dip into Kings. Wake up, smell the coffee, and have a great rest of the week.
Kings Road Cafe, 8361 Beverly Boulevard (at Orlando Drive); 323-655-9044.
