Situated in the heart of the DTLA Arts District, Blacktop Coffee is a great place to stop while exploring the unique scene. The cousins behind Wurstküche (one of my favorite LA restaurants) teamed up with Handsome Coffee Roasters to create this chic coffee bar. It’s constructed with top of the line equipment and well trained baristas to guarantee a good cup every time.
They have a simple espresso-drink menu and some tasty prepared food options as well. The best drink on the menu is their Cortado (equal parts espresso and warm milk). If you have time – sit out on their sidewalk patio and enjoy the LA sunshine.
If you’re hungry then get their Avocado Toast. Ask for a poached egg on top too! It’s prepared on sourdough rye with pickled onions and chives to give it a unique taste. LA is known for their Avocado Toast and this one is no exception!
