Our Favorite Venice Coffee Shops

Venice knows good coffee—and we love exploring all the local options in our neighborhood. For your morning cup, an afternoon pick-me-up, or a specialty brew, discover some of our favorite coffee shops within walking distance of Venice V Hotel. 


Little Lunch 

Little Lunch just feels like community—the spacious cafe is a great place to meet with friends, catch up on work, or enjoy a slow morning from the light-filled space. We love the Gold Coaster turmeric-spiced latte and their case of just-baked pastries from Sugar Bloom Bakery. 



Menotti’s holds a deep Venice history—named after the iconic Cesar Menotti, founder of Venice’s first speakeasy during the prohibition era of the 1920s. Today, slip into the local favorite cafe for a cappuccino or a Spanish latte in the cozy, subway-tiled space.



Located in the heart of Abbot Kinney Blvd., the Venice outpost of Intelligentsia is the perfect spot to people watch, taste their evolving lineup of signature roasts, or to take a break on the sun-soaked patio.


Bluestone Lane

Step into Australian cafe & coffee shop for a nod to relaxed Aussie-inspired culture through the lens of our eclectic Venice neighborhood. We love stopping in to enjoy coffee, cold-pressed juices, avocado smash toasts, breakfast burritos, and lemon ricotta pancakes from their all-day breakfast and brunch menu. 


Deus Ex Machina

One part motorcycle shop, surfing hq, and gathering spot…one part coffee shop & cafe, Deus Ex Machina is a hidden gem on the corner of Venice and Lincoln. Home to great coffee, delicious sandwiches, and ample seating, it’s a perfect spot to spend an afternoon. 


The Cow’s End

A family-friendly, warm local hangout spot for coffee and a bite on the patio—pair your espresso with a fresh acai bowl, smoothie, or anything from their all-day breakfast menu of comforting fare.


Gnarwhal Coffee Co.

Just up the road in Santa Monica, stop into hip cafe Gnarwal for an organic coffee or delicious pastry (don’t miss the cookies), all with an emphasis on sustainable sourcing and ongoing community support through their Gnarwal Foundation.
