This past year, many have had to adjust to working from home, and while some prefer it, others may appreciate a change in setting. I think we can all agree that everyone has faced changes in different areas and industries, big or small, but it doesn’t have to be bad at all! Whether you want to get outside of the house, or just want to have an excuse to wear something other than loungewear for a day, we have a cafe for you to be productive in.
So bring your laptop and charger, sit back, and enjoy a cup of coffee or brunch at a spot from our list.

Located on the border of DTLA and Koreatown, Coffee MCO’s 2-story patio is just the right space to catch up on those deadlines you have. With their new and improved upstairs patio, this space is just the right place to get your grind on. They specialize in lighter-roasted coffee, but if that’s not your jam, they also serve teas, pastries, and sodas. Try their Hojicha Latte, a roasted green tea latte, if you’re up for something different!
Open for coffee from 8am-10pm and brunch from 9am-4pm.
2100 W Washington Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90018
A little outside of Koreatown is Fence Coffee, “an experimental space for creatives to come, share and display their ideas.” Need we say less? You’ll enjoy everything about this place, from its seasonal drinks, to its cute interior.
Open Monday-Saturday from 7am-5pm.

Whether you are a coffee or tea lover (maybe even both), Alchemist Coffee Project has you covered. We’ll also totally understand if your sole reason for visiting is because of their vegan and gluten free s’mores donut. Tip: It is located in a busy strip mall, so give yourself time to find parking if you are in a crunch.
Open Monday-Saturday from 7:30am-7pm and Sundays from 8am-7pm.

Ever done work in a bar before? Go ahead and clock in remotely at this (coffee) bar, and we won’t tell anybody… Claiming to be Koreatown’s must-visit spot for the perfect cup of coffee, it wouldn’t hurt to give them a try since they’re located at the heart of all that is Koreatown. Did we also mention you get 3 hours of free parking with validation?
