Okay, hipster to the bone, I'll admit it. And the seating leaves something to be desired. But dagnabbit they make a mean cup of coffee. And the chai latte with a shot of espresso? Good lord, that'll get ya going in the morning! The spice alone will put a zing to your step. Also the eye candy is pretty rampant here, so if you're a dude that appreciates a great looking lady check the place out, maybe start a conversation over a nice cafe au lait ;)

Incredible coffee and delicious treats! I tried the earl grey madalines and they were super soft, moist and flavorful. You can really taste the tea infused flavor in the dessert!

Delish coffee and pastry. (Have seen gluten free options) Always a line but staff is speedy. Worth the short wait.

Love this funky coffee shop. Great beans and baristas. Not a lot of space inside but there's a cute outdoor space in the back. The crowd is typical eclectic Venice.

Groundwork is a part of my daily ritual, and it should be a part of yours, too, if you live in the area. My favorite thing to do is ride my bike to Groundwork, grab a cap, and then cruise down the Venice boardwalk sipping my coffee and checking the waves. It's also surprising how uncrowded the Venice boardwalk is in the morning (a much better experience than the tourist-packed boardwalk during the afternoons).

Specializing in organic coffees from around the world, this is a local favorite. Its mostly takeaway - not a place to hang out - but a great spot to grab a coffee en route to the beach!

Grab some organic coffee or tea at Groundwork on Main Street to refuel.
