America's Best Coffee Cities 2011
No. 20: Los Angeles
In a town known for both high-end shopping (No. 4) and fine dining (No. 6), a latte with a fancy swirl in the foam will happily set you back only a little. Coffee bars are also a good spot for celeb-spotting—Santa Monica’s Urth Caffé has been an erstwhile costar in the HBO series Entourage. Just don’t expect any casual chitchat from your barista: L.A. ranks dead last for friendliness in the survey.
