Blue Bottle might not be quite as cool anymore (that’s what happens when you get bought by Nestle), but don’t tell that to the Abbot Kinney tourists. Anyway, the coffee is still good, and it’s a lot less frantic here than at Intelligentsia up the street, even if there’s nowhere to sit while you drink your New Orleans iced coffee. We like this spot for another reason too: the rotating food trucks out front. Two of our favorites are regulars here - The Rooster on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, and Guerilla Tacos on Sundays. Order your food, head inside and grab your coffee while you wait, and then sit on the curb to enjoy some of the best breakfasts around.
