I love the atmosphere in the Downbeat Cafe. It's so relaxing and inviting at the same time. It's a nice place to meet others or just enjoy a good book

place used to be amazing. now the coffee's bad and the baristas are glacial. like three-toed sloth slow. oh, they'll drop what they're doing to chat regulars up, but for god's sake don't ask them to do their job. that's not why they were

I like The Downbeat Cafe. I always get some kind of tea or hot chocolate, the coffee is also good. The atmosphere is very laid back and there are special events going on some nights.

Parking sucks though, if you can't find any metered parking you have to drive around looking for a spot.

What you probably don't kow about the Downbeat Cafe, and I didn't really realize myself until a few days ago, is that they have amazing sandwiches and a tasty, healthy side salad. I always get the brie and avocado melt. It's sooooo good.

Easily one of the best neighborhood cafes in Los Angeles. Tucked into a row of storefronts it can be easy to miss. The cozy interior is decorated entirely with furniture and decor from the 1950s and local art adorns the walls. Coffee and

The Downbeat is that place where you can never be disappointed. The owner is apparently a coffee aficionado and buys great beans, and the tea is of the finest quality. The food is delicious and the portions are large. Sandwiches come
