French Press Coffee in West LA

Hey there. Does anyone know of a good breakfast place in west LA that serves french press coffee? Currently, we go to BLD for it, but that's a bit farther than we'd like to drive when it's not a special occasion.
Bonus points if the place has ricotta pancakes!

Thanks!

    I believe The Griddle on Sunset at Fairfax does.

      The Griddle definitely does, but I'm not sure that's considered West LA (?)....

      John O'Groats, Urth Caffe and Bread & Porridge all have (or at least "had") it.

        Thanks. John O'Groats is pretty close to my house. I'll give it a shot.

          La Petite Creperie on Grand View in Mar Vista. The crepes are excellent:

              Black Cat Cafe on Fairfax is my new favorite for ricotta pancakes. And $5 cheaper than BLD makes them the best in town. Coffee is good but not french press but pancakes trump all
