I love coffee and tea. In all my travels, I will always try local cafes and tea houses, find the time to visit a specialist coffee and tea shops and won’t hesitate to try local chain cafes too.
Although, I love American Diners, many don’t serve espresso or strong coffee. Five cups of coffee in many American diners will probably be an equivalent of a single Italian espresso shot. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is a chain just like Starbucks, Dunkin’Donuts, Costa and so on. If you are just like me, in need of a strong espresso in the morning before you can even function then ‘The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’ espresso is the place for you. There are many other good independent coffee shop in Santa Monica but if you happen to be having breakfast at a Diner and need to have a good a coffee shot of espresso, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is all over town and you can easily find one. They also serve ice blended coffee which in my personal experience taste so much better with an extra espresso shot and a perfect drink for the afternoon heat of Santa Monica beach. There’s also free wifi and the service is always quick and friendly. Open early in the morning from 5am to 9pm a good place to meet friends and enjoy a cup of coffee with a croissant, a brownie, a bagel or all of the above. Enjoy!
