I feel like coffee is having a Very Big Moment right now, thanks in part ot Instagram. It seems to be the breakout star. My feed is full of gorgeous natural light filled coffee shops and the most amazing latte art. I ain't mad. This is Menotti's, which I first learned about through Bonnie Tsang's Instagram. She's great for stalking down beautiful places.
Menotti's is right on the beach and almost directly under the Venice sign in California. First thing, the people who work there are so friendly. Above and beyond friendly. That is always heart warming. Even more so when they also pass you a great cup of coffee.
If you're by the beach, make sure to stop over in Menotti's. Meet the baristas, post an Instagram. I know I won't be the only one hitting the like button.
