Working from home has a ton of benefits, but it also can be kind of stifling. One surefire way to go crazy is to stare at the same 4 walls all day long! I tend to spend a lot of time in coffee shops to break up my day and give me some fresh scenery. Strong coffee, excellent wifi and a pretty aesthetic are all key when I’m looking for a new coffee shop. I tend to stick to coffee shops in Brentwood because I live in the Palisades, but I’ll share all of my faves below. My order varies from place to place but you can never go wrong with an iced chai latte in my opinion.

Santa Monica

Bardonna (There’s an adorable colorful heart wall on the outside wall in the back!)

That about wraps it up! Did I miss any of your go-to spots? Let me know! I’ve found it’s helpful to keep a running list on your phone so you can pop over to a nearby coffee shop depending on what area you’re in : )

In other news, who is ready for early access to start for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale tomorrow? This is not a drill- it is go time people! The Sale begins tonight at 12 am PST, so I have my alarm set at an ungodly hour to start shopping the Sale for y’all. Not sure if I’m going to need coffee or vino!! I’ll be sharing my top picks tomorrow on Brooke du jour.
