Stir Crazy is another old school cafe that's been open for nearly 20 years. This cozy cafe is popular with screenwriters as it's equipped with lighting fast wifi, plenty of outlets, and bottomless cups of coffee. Once you're wired on coffee, switch to a strawberry smoothie. At night, I like sitting on the patio.
Cute and YUMMY – Great coffe, atmosphere, and location. Perfest place to enjoy with friends or alone.
Love This Place – I'm not a huge fan of bright lights (who is really?) and when I go to a Starbucks I'm always reminded of why I stay away, aside from the too-harsh house blend. It's those lights, and that oftentimes loud music they have on. This place is the antidote for that, with a couple of low lamplights in the corners of the room. There's barely enough light to throw a shadow, so the room itself is very dark and very intimate. The coffee's not bad either. I highly suggest this night owl-friendly spot.
True coffeehouse vibe – Granted, there's no stool-seated folk singer. Instead, you'll hear wannabe screenwriters typing away on their laptops. This is, however, the closest thing to a bonafide coffeehouse that I've found in L.A. It's dark and moody inside, people seem to linger, tables are large enough that you can spread out your reading materials. There are lots of cigarette smokers at Stir Crazy--you'll first spot them out front on the ugly lawn furniture that passes for outdoor seating.
