Who Doesn’t love coffee?Being a coffee-holic, a cup of coffee is a must to begin a new day full of passion and inspiration. Recently I have Been to Carrera Cafe to Grab a Cup of Coffee and Totally fell in Love with it . And now this has become one of my Favorite Cafes in Los Angeles.
The Structure :
It is a cute little European style cafe, Very open and bright with white colored walls and has both Indoor and Outdoor seating.I found the cafe super Clean and Shiny. If you want to study and have a sandwich, this place seems like a good study spot.They offer Complimentary WiFi as well to those who want to get some work done(Who doesn’t love free WiFi??).
As I peeked from the window I saw a bunch of people posing for a picture and when I went out to see what’s there,OMG I surprisingly found a Coachella Mural which was stunning. Later I got to know that This has become a Famous wall in LA where people come just to take pictures.They often Repaint it with different Murals which makes it so Famous.HOW COOL ! ISN’T IT??
I went in to order a Latte and found out that they can print any image onto your drink.WOW !!! They have a set of prints you can choose from for your drinks or you can upload whatever picture you want them to print on your Coffee.In order to get your image printed, all you have to do is download their free app “Coffee Ripples” and upload the picture you want.
I thought this might take time but surprisingly the Coffee was ready in lessthan a minute with an amazing art on it. I have never seen a picture printed on coffee and that too so clean and perfect .
This place is not just hyped up with the latte art and Mural but also for their salads and sandwiches which were freshly good ,with a good portion of plate.
They also have a lot of small snacks and drinks you can buy on the shelves. Please don’t forget to check out their “cassettes” on shelves which are actually deliciously tasting imported chocolates.(I Loved their Packaging )
The Staff :
The Baristas were so Friendly and Patient, They explain each and every customer the process of downloading the app and uploading the picture with patience . I was there for 30 minutes and what I observed is they actually greet every single customer with a big smile . SO SWEET !!!
There are tons of metered street parking on Melrose avenue but this is “LA” , You should be lucky enough to get one lol. I went on a weekday at around 9:30am and luckily got one which was 1$ for 2 hour parking.
It is Located at 8251 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90046,
