My Top 5 Favorite Coffee Shops of 2016

Welcome to the first-ever annelovescoffeemore list of my five favorite coffee shops. If you live in or have plans to be in Los Angeles, NYC, Paris or Vancouver, and you love good coffee, there is something here for you. Also, I am always looking for new coffee shops to try in different cities throughout the world, so if you have a recommendation of a shop to add to my list, please comment below! On my short list of places I plan to go/get back to: Sydney, Buenos Aires, NYC, London and Paris. If you have fave coffee shops in any of those cities, hit me up! I will check them out when I get there. There are so many reasons I love each of the coffee shops below, but in the interest of brevity, I’ve just included my top few reasons.

184 Duane Street
New York, NY 10013

Because Hugh Jackman, duh (even though I have never seen him there – sigh). But really because this a great shop with great coffee doing great things like donating all of its profits to the Laughing Man Foundation.

325 Cambie Street
Vancouver, BC, CANADA

Cognoscenti Coffee
M-Sa: 8a-5p, Su: 9a-3p
6114 Washington Blvd
Culver City, CA 90282
ph: 310 363 7325
Because they have a poster with illustrations cups from coffee shops all over Los Angeles. If that’s not good sportsmanship, I don’t know what is. But other equally good reasons are: because great coffee, because awesome selection of beans, because delicious pastries.

Delicious pastries and chocolate bars. So many chocolate bars…


Cognoscenti’s very respectable selection of beans, teas, and gear.
