Venice Grind

Coffee in Culver City & Mar Vista

While it mightn't be much to look at, this lo-fi coffee shop brews decent cups of joe using beans from local roasters Sightglass and Contraband. Chilled staffers, free wi-fi and a scattering of power sockets make it a popular work space, though seating is limited. If the weather's on your side, slurp away on the back patio.
