Subject: Bookstore / Coffeeshop in LA?
So I just started an extended business trip to the LA area and I'm
already missing one of my favorite haunts back home in Boston - the
Trident Cafe (on Newbury). The Trident is a hybrid coffee shop /
bookstore / restaurant with a great atmosphere, free wifi, and decent
coffee. Does anyone know of something like it in the LA Area? I'm
staying in the LAX / Manhattan Beach area so I have a preference for
things in that area.

Thanks!

Ryan...

Dutton's, Brentwood and beverly hills. Not that close to LAX but about
as good as you'll find.

I don't know what coffee they use, but it's not bad...

I don't think you will find the equivalent of a Boston coffee house in
Manhattan Beach, California. It is a day and night difference between
those cities. Still, try Noah's Bagels for good coffee and bagels,
Petros for some outstanding greek that is more than greek and the bar
and restautant at the Shade hotel. And try Aimees on PCH in Redondo.
And try Torimatsu on Artesia near Western for an updated version of the
Japanese Yakitori restaurant. Lots of good dining in the area.

Most of the large chain outlets (Borders, Barnes & Noble) have
in-house coffee shops offering the usual large chain coffee. But, the
best coffee shops are not connected to book stores.
