We are part a diverse community of people and businesses. In our immediate building there is us, the Downbeat Cafe, a family run coffee shop, where you can enjoy friendly service, a relaxing environment, classic jazz, a cappuccino, tasty soup & sandwiches and the best peanut butter cookie in L.A.

The interior is a 50's vintage coffee shop with reading lamps and plugs at the tables making it a perfect place to have lunch and get some work done or to meet a potential client or collaborator.

There is live jazz every Wednesday night played by the band who named themselves after our coffee shop: The Downbeats.

Say hello to your neighbors Dan, Natalie, Darby and Joshua.
