Step into Kings Road Cafe in West Hollywood, and you immediately feel like part of the neighborhood–a very hip neighborhood. It’s a great place to meet up with a group of friends and scope out the local trendsetters from the comfort of a patio perch. Look everywhere but your watch—this is a place to take it easy, with no pressing agendas. The laid-back vibe is the first of many reasons Kings Road has been a local staple for more than twenty years. The second is the food. Every breakfast and lunch pick is exceptional, and they’ve recently gone back to serving dinner, adding stone oven pizzas to an already strong arsenal. But you and your crew are here for the true highlight: java. Nothing kicks off conversation quite like caffeine, and this strong brew hits you like a mule. Wrap your hands around a mug and feel like you’re drinking a work of art. The beans are roasted in-house, resulting in a cup so fresh and rich and delicious, you’ll want to make it your daily brew. Baristas in the takeout cafe next door whip up to-go coffees with expert precision, but plan to stay a while. Kings Road is the perfect place to relax, enjoy the day, and share stories with friends.
