One area of LA that I don’t explore often enough, but fall in love every time I visit is Silverlake. Silverlake is the “hipster/indie” part of Los Angeles. It’s slightly trendy in a “non-want-to-be-trendy” kind of way. There is a lot of character in the shops that align the streets. Thankfully my dear friend who lives in this area invited me to her neck of the woods for a coffee date at Lamill Coffee Boutique. It was easy to find right off of Sunset Blvd. and a HAD parking lot. If you live in LA, you know this is a rarity and a premium. Right when I walked in, I was surprised at how urban glam the decor was. It was very posh and welcoming including the staff. If you are ordering coffee inside the shop, they have full table service and a full breakfast and lunch menu. There’s also available outdoor patio seating. I asked our waiter what drinks were most popular and he recommended the Salted Caramel Latte and that is exactly what I ordered made with almond milk and cup of butternut squash soup (their daily soup). My friend ordered an iced Americano and the eggs Benedict.
All were delicious, especially my latte! We ended up staying for two and half hours catching up! The menu has many drinks to choose from (lavender lemonades with plumbery, Hong Kong milk tea, etc.) so there are many drinks to choose from even if you’re not a coffee drinker.
