Iced Coffee

These Dunkin Donuts commercials for iced coffee are giving me cravings, but we don't have Dunkin Donuts in SoCal. Any recommendations for really good iced coffee on the Westside, preferably Venice/SM/MdR area?

      Peets has refrigerated ice coffee (drip) so you don't have pb w/ ice diluting coffee/flavor

    2. The chain of restos, "Curry House" make a fantastic iced coffee. They even do an iced coffee float, with ice-cream! Very strong coffee, and all the creamer and sugar syrup a person could ask for!

      I allways get one, when I eat there.

        LOVE Curry House Iced Coffee-- it is definitely worth a try

      2. Stop at any local 7-Eleven. You make your own drink choosing from many fresh brewed coffees, add any of the many different flavorings, then top it off with ice from the soda dispensing area. Largest cup costs only $1.49 (24 oz.). Can't beat it. You get it exactly the way you want it.

        1. Leonidas ice blended Mocha is so good that I simply will not have any other. I will add that I have tried others but with Leonidas I am unable to remove the straw from my mouth until it is all gone – true bliss. I have never been to the Santa Monica location but there is an address on their web page. I go to the Pasadena location.

          Leonidas Chocolate Café
          331 Santa Monica Blvd.
          Santa Monica , CA 90401-2205
          (310) 917-4496

          1. In Venice, I'd recommend Groundwork on Rose. If you want sweet, they do a mean iced vanilla latte. But they also have strong, refrigerated (and therefore not watered down) iced coffee.

              Amen! I went to Java N Jazz in Valencia, CA (not ES) and they poured their pretty good Mexican Dark Roast (my choice) over a cup of ice. The result was coffee flavored ice water!
