Celebrities may seem superior to us in more ways than one, but we’ve all got one thing in common: we rely on coffee to help us through those early mornings and long nights. Here’s a list of the most popular LA coffee shops among celebrities, so you can order that cup of joe and feel like your favorite star while you’re sipping.
1. Alfred’s Coffee — West Hollywood (and many more)
Paparazzi seriously camp outside this place since it’s essentially in the middle of a celebrity breeding ground. Practically every LA star goes to Alfred’s; it’s just that good. From personal experience, their Vanilla Lattes are to die for. And for the record, last time I went, I missed Nick Jonas by an hour or so (heartbreaking, I know).
2. Ed’s Coffee Shop — West Hollywood
Ed’s boasts classic comfort diner food in the heart of WeHo. This coffee shop is not only popular among Yelpers, but celebrities as well. Kim Kardashian and Joe Manganiello have both been spotted at Ed’s on several occasions.
3. Intelligentsia — Silver Lake
The name sounds fancy and so is their coffee. Located on Sunset Blvd, Intelligentsia is in the heart of LA, making its location prime. Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family even admitted that this is his favorite coffee shop.
4. Starbucks — Los Angeles (and many more)
They may be famous, but celebrities are normal people just like us. They need their Starbucks just as much as the next person. Britney Spears herself swears by Starbucks. Because there’re so many around, we recommend you check out the Starbucks in areas celebrities tend to hangout in most: West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, and Studio City.
5. Urth Caffe — West Hollywood (and many more)
Urth was mostly made popular by Kylie Jenner’s obsession with their green tea boba, as seen all over her Instagram. However, Urth has much more to offer, from Spanish lattes to organic entrees. It’s such a common hangout for viners, socialities, and others. Some of my friends have found themselves dining next to Ashley Benson or Aaron Paul, just to name a few.
6. Coffee Bean — Studio City (and many more)
Like Starbucks, Coffee Beans are everywhere. This makes it convenient for stars like Nina Dobrev or Vanessa Hudgens to grab a quick iced latte before heading to set.
7. Verve — West Hollywood
Verve is consistently rated one of the best coffee shop chains in America, putting it up to those high celeb standards. You can catch models Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner here often getting their everyday coffee fix.
Now, next time you go to LA, you can blend in with the biggest stars. And if you’re lucky, you might find yourself in line with someone famous.
