Struggling to wake up in the morning or get past that afternoon slump? We recommend indulging in a tasty latte at one of LA’s many cute coffee shops. Although you can find countless creative coffee drinks around LA, here are 11 pretty LA lattes every coffee lover must try!
Urth Caffe: Spanish Latte
The Urth Caffe Spanish latte will transport you to Barcelona. A foamy blend of espresso, steamed milk, and condensed milk, the Spanish Latte is a sweet treat that will motivate you to get out of bed. With five locations throughout LA, Urth Caffe is always a convenient coffee option!
The Butcher, the Baker, the Cappucino Maker: Rainbow Latte
Not over the rainbow food and drink trend? We suggest heading to the quaint Butcher, the Baker, the Cappucino Maker for the Instagrammable rainbow latte. Ethiopian espresso beans are roasted in house and the designs are super cute!
Bardonna: Honey Lavender Latte
If you’re in search of something comforting, visit the charming Bardonna and order the honey lavender latte. The warming honey and notes of lavender will give you a feeling of serenity that will get you through any hectic morning. All syrups are made in-house with all-natural ingredients, making this luxurious drink a guilt-free treat!
Alfred Coffee: Matcha Latte
Not into coffee? We love the stylish Alfred Coffee’s matcha latte for a java-free caffeine rush. The antioxidant-rich drink will power you through your day. Other benefits of matcha include increasing concentration, creating a sense of calm and supporting the immune system.
Eightfold Coffee: Matcha Latte
For another matcha option on the Eastside, visit Eightfold Coffee in Echo Park. The Matcha Latte at this sun-drenched café is deliciously creamy and sweet. The space is gorgeous, complete with succulents, art books and magazines.
Balconi: Almond Latte
The almond latte is this cozy Sawtelle spot’s specialty. Prepared with steamed organic Straus milk and sweetened crushed almonds, this drink is a mouthwatering afternoon pick-me-up.
Tomo Latte: Tomo Latte
Known for their hand drip method and adorable panda coffee art, Coffee Tomo is the perfect spot to grab a latte (and perhaps a pretzel) when you find yourself on the westside. We recommend the Tomo Latte, which is prepared with condensed milk and high-quality beans.
Tierra Mia: Horchata Latte
With twelve locations throughout California, Tierra Mia knows a thing or two about coffee. We love the horchata latte, one of the café’s specialties. The Mexican drink includes hints of cinnamon that make it the ideal drink for the fall.
Carrera Café: Printed Latte
In search of coffee while shopping on Melrose? Stop by European-style Carerra Café and order one of the photogenic print lattes. While we love the LA LA Land inspired drinks, we’ve also seen flamingos, palm trees and even family photos printed into the lattes at this super cool spot.
Go Get Em Tiger: Almond Macadamia Latte
Go Get Em Tiger began as G & B Coffee, a small pop-up at the popular Sqirl Café. Eight months later, the team opened Go Get Em Tiger in Larchmont Village, where we find our favorite almond macadamia latte. The delicious macadamia milk is made made in house, making this an amazing dairy-free option!
Flowerboy Project: Rose Girl Latte
The beautiful rose girl latte is prepared with rose and steamed milk. Then, the drink is finished with a dusting of flower petals. Although this latte is caffeine-free, the bright pink color will still give you a rush of energy and joy. Hang around the pretty space and check out the flower bouquets, notebooks and other small gifts.
