It is difficult to believe people would give this filthy place a 5 star rating. So, the coffee is good, yes, best ever? No. In Vancouver, BC, good quality independent coffee joints come every 5 blocks, with the added bonus of floors that were cleaned in the last 18 years and staff who are pleasant. The thoroughly unpleasant woman (that's being charitable, to call this witch a woman) acted like she was doing a huge favor by providing my order.\r
To those patrons who claim this place is 'keeping it real' I ask, real what? Real rudeness? Real dirt? Sad, if Los Angeles folk go here because it is the best coffee they can find. This place deserves to go out of business, over-rated in the extreme, awful customer service, and good, but not the greatest coffee.
