Best Coffee Shops In LA: Philz Coffee


Philz Coffee, the place where coffee snobs’ dreams come true, began in San Francisco and spread like wildfire throughout NorCal until it finally made its way south. They take coffee very seriously at Philz, and won’t rest until they make you the perfect cup.

The Mint Mojito Iced Coffee is a sweet treat that truly lives up to the hype. Philz is located just off the busy intersections near Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica, and is perfect for a day at the beach. Its roomy interior with long tables and ample seating provide a place to plug in and tune out. The baristas are ridiculously cheerful and accommodating. You get your own barista when you walk up to the bar and they can customize any variation of the drinks on the menu. There’s nothing better than mint and iced coffee to stay cool during a hot Southern California day.

Whether you like your coffee black and choose one of their 20+ custom blends or you opt for the extremely popular mint mojito iced coffee, you can count on leaving with the smile and the perfect cup of Joe (or ehm… Phil).
