Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
This L.A. born coffee chain arose in 1963 and now competes with bigger chains in California. This longtime location in family-friendly Larchmont Village has limited space indoors. Orders are taken at the counter with a wall mounted menu nearby, and the patio is a popular spot for those looking to read while drinking their coffee. Brewed coffee and espresso drinks are a favorite, as are teas and lattes, but the chain is best known for its ice-blended drinks. The caffeinated shakes come in flavors like mocha, vanilla, caramel, and Black Forest, which blends chocolate powder, cherries, and chocolate covered espresso beans.
