There are some coffee shops in LA that can be a bit of a destination. Where you drag yourself out of bed, get dressed, get in the car, drive over, circle around the block twice for street parking, and go get a hard earned cup of joe (jk let’s be real it’s probably a fancy-ass espresso drink with CBD or something). Alfred is one of these places. 310 Coffee Company is not. 310 Coffee is what LA should have more of. Truly neighborhood coffee shops. Where most of the people who go live within a mile or two radius. Where getting coffee doesn’t have to be an event.
310 Coffee Company is strategically located in a part of Mar Vista that’s a little more quiet. There aren’t a ton of trendy coffee shops in the area, and it’s mostly residential, tucked between the busier Venice Blvd a block north and Washington Blvd a block south. We like it here because it feels neighborhood-y. There’s nothing remarkable about it, which is what makes it special. It’s quiet, stress free. Easy to find parking. Not to big, not too small. Good coffee. Nice patio. Perfect for takeaway or for getting some work done in peace (which we don’t take for granted in this city).
