RIP OFF !! Worst Customer Service I've Experienced... REALLY! – Worst experience I've had in a long time, was charged $4.50 for a stale croissant (that's $4.00 folks, you know Starbucks and other places charge you $1.50? think about this) and $4.50 for a small bland latte! Outrageous prices. When I spoke to the owner/manager about it, she screamed at me that I WAS WRONG about the croissant being stale and that I just wanted my money back...well, yes actually I did...what's the problem? ! She was a Korean Woman in her 50's, just absolutely awful. Refused to give me back my money for the stale croissant ( I didn't even bring up the coffee) and she wouldn't even hear me out. or tell me her name when I asked her for it!!! Unbelievable that this passes as customer service, her business is not worthy of a single dollar. The two barristas working were very nice and apologetic. I am seriously considering putting flyers all around the place so she learns that customers should be treated with some respect and quality service, and not ripped off and yelled at.
Colorful coffeehouse caters to industry types, yoga instructors and trendy locals of all persuasions. – In Short
This small cafe's reputation for potent coffee and people-watching makes it one of L.A.'s busiest coffeehouses. Patrons range from nine-to-fivers looking for a morning rush to lingering sippers enjoying an after-dinner cup of joe. Breakfast features granola bowls and fresh fruit salad. Tuna or turkey sandwiches make for quick, easy lunches. Buzz also serves chai "Freezzes," protein shakes and a selection of teas. Pastry case faves include chocolate Bundt cake and Oreo cookie cheesecake.
good people watching – I have never had a drink here that I've loved, I've tried everything from lattes, to hot chocolate, to blended drinks. Always a disappointment. It's great people watching and open late though so now if I go I just get a water or an iced tea.
Coffee to match the scene – So what's the buzz all about...it's about the coffee that goes along with the scene. It's a nice place to chill and watch the celebs come by from nearby crunch and burke williams. Or you can grab a cup of joe before browsing music at nearby virgin music store. Where else can you go and spend less money than a movie and actually see actors and actresses in person?
going down – There has been an ownership change for Buzz Coffee on Sunset. Since the change the store has been taking a sharp decline in everything. Employees who used to be there are no longer there and the ambience and feel of the store has really gone down. I'm sure pretty soon it will be selling ice cream and donuts along with a variety of knicknacks and other trinkets. It truly is a shame that a place that was an institution could crumble with a bad ownership change. Oh well nothing lasts forever, soon it will be a Starbucks or some other crappy big company.
