Most mornings, I hop on my beach cruiser for the quick
6-block ride from my house in Venice, CA to Groundwork Coffee


on Rose and 7th
Ave.  The vibe is relaxed and local
with wood floors, antique coffee pots and teapots, and my favorite old poster
that reads, “you can sleep when you’re dead.”  All of their coffee is 100% organic and fairly traded.  I usually opt for a cup of the Black
Gold but if I’m needing an extra jolt I’ll mix in a little of the Bitches Brew
– Groundwork’s darkest and strongest roast. All the muffins, croissants and
danishes are baked fresh daily and breakfast burritos and sandwiches are also
served and worth ordering–  I do
love a good breakfast burrito! While there is no indoor seating, there are two
benches in front of the store as well as a sweet covered outdoor sitting
area.  If I have time, I prefer to
take my coffee to go and greet the day at the beach, which is only a couple
blocks away.
