30 Days of Coffee: Day 20

March 21, 2015

Day 20: Menotti’s

When planning to do this series, I already knew which places I wanted to include in it, but when I came across Menotti’s I knew some changes had to be made.  While meeting up with a friend in Venice, I made it known that I would be needing coffee if I were to be at all functional.  I’ve already been to Blue Bottle, and Intelli, so I wanted to try something new.  Old faithful (Yelp) led me to Menotti’s, and I’m so happy it did!

Menotti’s is a small little coffee shop just off of the Venice Beach Boardwalk.  It’s named after the original name of the Townhouse bar (which is currently next door to Menotti’s).  Despite it being in one of LA’s most touristy areas, it still has a feeling of your friendly neighborhood coffee house.  They use Four Barrel coffee, just like Dinosaur (here).  There are vegan and organic coffee options to cater to the variety of customers that come through.  There isn’t much space for hanging around inside, but there are a few stools and a table by the window.  But when you’re just steps from the ocean, do you really want to stay inside anyway?
