Searching for coffee
Need a good coffee house near Melrose & Vine
If you want the best cup of coffee, I would suggest Groundworks on Sunset. If you want the best place to grab a cup and hang out/read/work I would suggest Caffe Etc. on Cahuenga.
6371 Selma Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028
Depends what you're looking for (best coffee, place to sit and work, food, etc.) and how wide your radius is, but there's also...
Stir Crazy on Melrose, closer to Highland
Wild Oats on Melrose at Larchmont
Bricks & Stones on Larchmont south of Melrose
Fratelli on Melrose past La Brea
Or if you're willing to travel a little further...
Insomnia, both on Beverly west of La Brea
