( – LACMA, Los Angeles, California


How I heard of this place: My sister, the designer and artist wished to visit LACMA on her first trip to Southern California in about 16 years. The other two of us obliged, and, of course, talked her into a coffee break during the museum tour.

Type of cuisine: While spending a day at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, stop by for a boutique coffee experience at C+M (Coffee and Milk). Our baristas artistically present Intelligentsia coffee and espresso, alongside seasonal sandwiches, organic milk sorbet and a variety of fresh pastries.LACMA C+M Order Counter

Ambiance: Located near the museum store, we are surrounded by thousands of works of art and an art-making gallery for all ages. The café culture at C+M is a cozy blend of modern design and classic coffee shop, fitting for a day visit at LACMA.
