This is one of my favorite coffee places in the LA area. It's a cozy, funky place with character, which is a nice break from the ubiquitous Starbucks and other coffee chains. My favorite thing is the waldorf chicken salad, which is grilled chicken over field greens and a balsamic vinaigrette, with goat cheese, chopped apples, walnuts and raisins. It comes with a choice of bread. They have several types of salads, sandwiches and desserts. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I can't comment on their coffee. My only complaint is that as a tea drinker, I was disappointed that the chai they serve is store-bought and poured out of a box and they have the audacity to charge $3.50 for it.

PROS: Charming atmosphere, good salads
CONS: Lack of a variety of tea, store-bought chai

It is one of the only ones, but nonetheless, I think very highly of it. They have a rotating display of local/student artwork on the walls, the food is very good, they have a wide selection of both food and beverages, a wide selection of vegetarian options, and a cozy, funky feel. I give it 4 stars because due to the live music, it's not the best place for a chat at night, depending on the musician and how loud they are (after 9pm 7 nights a week they have live music). Also, the guy who is always working when I am there is a bit gruff, but I think that's just his personality. He has never been rude to me. Parking can be difficult, but it seems like parking behind the liquor store across the street is okay and there are always plenty of spaces over there. I am not sure who this parking lot belongs to, but so far I haven't been towed or ticketed. There isn't much parking in back, and if Temple Bar is having a show, parking nearby can be difficult.

After a year on the road drinking mostly Starbucks coffee, I wantered back into an old college favorite of mine...and remembered real coffee. Anastasia's make awesome espresso drinks. Though you an get blended drinks, you'll be missing out if you passon an old-fashioned capp or latte with crema and smooth foam. Its heavenly. Anastasia's is comfortable and funky at the same time. There are 2 floors of tables, ech with its own groove. There are plenty of students and buisnessmen with laptops. People here seem to know the baristas and there is a familiar feel. I have never eaten a full meal here but people really seem to enjoy their breakfasts!
