One of LA’s most under-appreciated coffee chains, Groundworks has great locations across the city, but their Arts District spot wins out solely based on how big it is. There are long communal tables, plenty of booths, and a whole separate upper section as well. It can certainly get crowded and almost everyone is on their laptops, but don’t fear - you’ll have plenty of room to enjoy your coffee in peace.
