Coffee, Wifi, open > 10p (preferably until ~midnight)

  • n

Am I looking for a unicorn? Something like Spoon by H or Susina would be ideal, but they both close fairly early.

The starbucks by me closes their dining room @ 10p, so that's out of the equation...

  1. Most places in L.A. close at 10p. Go where the late nighters go... Koreatown... Caffe Concerto is open till like 1a...

      I would argue that most coffee places in LA are not open @10p, k-town excluded.

        Opps! That is what I get for answering a post mid conf. call... I meant closed not open. :P Except in K-Town, although my favorite Brew Well is also closes at 10p.

    2. Literati is open until 11PM.

            cafe168 for bottomless coffee
            gz for topless coffee
            cau vong for closest to NoHo

            they all have wifi. you can "work" out of MCutie's patio since it's quiet and sorta smoke-free

            otherwise, Haus Cafe, cuz...the "coffee hunter" is there. or, Caffe Bene. or, for loud Kpop, Iota.

            Assumin Pas is not SGV (and it isn't per a few editors), no SGV coffee is drinkable except at Taza/Cafe de baristas.

              If this were reddit I'd upvote you a dozen times. I'm amazed that they all have wifi.

              1. re: TonyC

                I thought there was an ordinance outlawing topless coffee a while back...

                1. re: J.L.

                  Not topless, just bikini style attire.

            2. If you're at Susina already, why not head a few blocks down Beverly to (the aptly named) Insomnia Cafe?

                kinda far from my home base (NoHo) but pretty much what I'm looking for...thx. Same w/ whatever tea.

                  crave cafe in sherman oaks. open 24hrs and they had wifi the last time i was there, though that was a few months ago.

                  1. re: cdub

                    was not impressed when i stopped by, terrible waffles. terrible, terrible waffles.

                    1. re: ns1

                      note to self. don't get the waffles.

                      the food there didn't wow me but it also didn't offend me.

                      24hrs is nice especially in the area.

              2. Whatever Tea

                Coffee? ✓

                Wi-Fi? ✓ (free too!)

                Open > 10p? ✓ (midnight on weekdays, 1a on wknd)

                1. Iota in Korea Town is likely your only bet. Or Intelligentsia on Thurs-Sat (11).

                  If you don't care that much about the coffee quality, then Pier 212 in Venice is a coffee shop open 24/7.

                  1. What was the name of the joint in the SGV with siphon coffee and cafe sua dua ????

                    1. Try one of my favorite independent coffee houses, Grounded Cafe. It's at 14241 Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. They're open from 8 am until midnight. There's even seating in the adjoining lobby for extra privacy.

                      1. Crave Cafe on Ventura and Van Nuys in Sherman Oaks, though it can be a little scene-y
