Nestled inside The Grove, La La Land Kind Cafe offers guests an open, elegant setting underscored by minimalistic white surfaces, posh gray couches, pale wooden beams laid across the ceiling, and an enchanting, umbrella-shaded terrace lined with colorful flowers.

Tucked inside the Original Los Angeles Farmers Market – which got its start in July 1934, when a dozen farmers and a few other merchants parked their trucks at the corner of 3rd & Fairfax and sold their fresh produce from the back of the trucks – Coffee Corner has been a local favorite and part of the bustling Market scene since 1946. The friendly folks behind the counter here serve espresso drinks made the Old World Way, as well as refreshing herbal lemonade and scrumptious pastries.
Occupying a walk-up stall snuggled amongst the booths lining the Original Farmers Market – Waffleshot is a necessary addition to any shopping spree! The concept was born as the founders were searching for an eco-friendly way to serve espresso. Made out of high-quality ingredients, this is not your ordinary waffle cone or chocolate treat. The Waffleshot holds hot, cold, and frozen contents. Shaped into a cup, the waffles are then hand coated and layered with the finest chocolate. There is an extra layer nestled at the bottom, making it the ultimate drinking experience
