Go Get Em Tiger is basically a full-blown chain now, with eight locations across the city (all of which have excellent wifi), but whenever we have a deadline that, oh we don’t know, has already passed, we head to their Santa Monica outpost. They’re located in a super-busy area filled with a bunch of trendy coffee shops, but Go Get Em Tiger rises above the rest due to their great coffee, menu filled with real foods like breakfast burritos and beet and lentil salads, and a cozy space with lots of room between tables.
