In the competitive world of LA cafés, Go Get Em Tiger is like the hometown popular underdog giving Alfred a run for his money. In fact, notably, they steer clear of each other despite each having several outposts scattered throughout the city. Go Get Em Tiger, which locals know as gget, is anchored on the east side, extending from its original location in Larchmont all the way to Highland Park.
Over the years, gget has established itself as a well-loved local brand, with bright merch, colorful coffee packaging, and obnoxiously cute spaces attracting a cult following among the creative community of Los Angeles. Of course, among the world of freelancers and creatives in this city, it’s cool to be a coffee snob. And whether you show up to work with a gget cup in hand, or you’re casually chatting up a friend (or stranger) right outside the café on a random weekday, you’ll get the street cred you crave. If you’re a real coffee snob, they have plenty of roasts that will surely be up to snuff. If you’re an imposter, no one has to know that you just ordered an oat milk latte 😉
Larchmont: 230 N Larchmont Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90004
|Hours||varies by location, but most open around 6 or 7am on weekdays and close around 6|
|Price||$$ – general prices comparable with every other pretty coffee shop in this city|
|Aesthetic||in-your-face kind of cute, minimalist yet colorful, full of personality that you can wear with their quirky cute merch|
Go here for: your morning coffee, perhaps your afternoon coffee, maybe a little breakfast or a light lunch too while you’re at it
Order this: ask for recommendations from the daily brews to find a flavor profile that tickles your taste buds
Amount of time to spend: 1-2 hours is pretty standard, but not the kind of place where you can get too cozy (think, limited seating, no outlets etc)
When to come: whenever; there’s always a good crowd there, but (esp on weekdays) it usually isn’t too hard to find a seat.
Parking: really varies from location to location, but honestly none of them are great, save for the ROW, which as mentioned in previous posts, has the city’s emptiest parking structure.
