Coffee for Sasquatch
Maybe it’s obvious but I do my best thinking/ writing/ scheming with a large cup of coffee in my hand. And while the coffee is a big part of it, so is the space where you enjoy the coffee. As much as I love my studio apartment, it’s in dire need of spring cleaning and we’ve been slacking on the dishes. 😂 so I bravely left the Westside on a weekend to head over to @coffee.forsasquatch for some brainstorming at my favorite #coffeewithmaggie.
Coffee: Coffee For Sasquatch primarily serves @ritualcoffee (and the most beautiful @lamarzocco espresso machine.) The menu tends to be larger and more creative that some of the more traditional coffee shops. There are always some fun seasonal specials (like honey cardamom and lavender vanilla lattes) and an extensive tea list, but I stuck with my usual almond milk latte and wasn’t disappointed. All the alternative milks and some fun extras make it hard to choose, but you can’t go wrong. ☕️☕️☕️
Treats/eats: There is a case of assorted baked goods including an impressive assortment of vegan/gluten free items (I went with the lemon @fonuts), sandwiches and other treats. If you aren't in the mood for pastries, I'd recommend bringing your own snacks, but if you have a sweet tooth there is more than enough to tide you over. 🍩🍩🍩🍩
Atmosphere: This one is one of my favorites. In their first year of @coffee.forsasquatch has already won design and architectural awards for its stunning interior space, full of cool whites and greys with living plant walls. They play inoffensive music that’s chill enough to focus on work with, and if you are lucky enough to find parking in the area you can camp out all day. Baristas are friendly and while there are always people taking photos for the 'gram it seems to be in a less intrusive way than most other coffee shops. 💻💻💻💻
Price: $4.75 for a latte and standard $1 for alternative milks. I’m not complaining because I think I have coffee shop price desensitization. (Standard for LA, slightly pricey for anywhere else). 💸💸
