Upside Down

There’s a lot going on at Upside Down, a coffee shop in Westwood that doubles as an art space and community center. Between their signature (and super strong) caffeinated drinks, like the tiramisu latte and lavender London fog made with Earl Grey tea, and immersive art exhibits, Upside Down has earned its place in the hearts of many UCLA Bruins. It’s become a favorite place for college students to look at Canvas and have a mini-spiral over impending deadlines. Make sure to check out their monthly Shabbat dinners.
