Trendy cafes and trendy people tend to gravitate toward the same pockets around the city. Perhaps Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake or Echo Park. Or Melrose, west of Fairfax, of course. Or perhaps somewhere in Venice. Or the increasingly populated parts of Culver City. But then there are some places that are trendsetters, paving the road for hipsters (and gentrifiers, let’s be honest), to explore a less frequented part of town. Highly Likely has managed to attract a stream of third wave coffee drinkers to West Adams of all places.
If it were located anywhere else though, it’d probably be too good to be true. The all day cafe is airy and spacious. There’s ample street parking nearby. They serve great coffee and food. There’s plenty of seating to go around for all those creative entrepreneur types that have the time to be taking a meeting out here on a weekday afternoon. In the context of West Adams, it does feel a little out of place. But if you’re looking to escape from those other popular parts of town, this is a great place to be.
