Los Angeles

On the border of Santa Monica and Venice, Espresso Cielo serves European-style coffee drinks plus third-wave creations, like a Blue Bottle-inspired Gibaltrar (a double shot of espresso with lightly-steamed milk). The shop partnered with nearby Hotcakes Bakes to serve a rotating food menu of quiche, macarons, and other pastries.
