This shop is close to the Marriott. While staying at the Marriott, I stopped here for my morning coffee and had a thoroughly enjoyable cup. Service was friendly.

I'm not a huge caffeine guy but I do like to stop in here for an iced tea on a hot day. They have a large selection and it's worth the quick stop

If you have a free hour and want to go somewhere to work, have coffee and people watch. CBTL on MB Blvd is the place to go. The staff is friendly, it is always busy, and in the summer, there is a never ending parade of people going to the beach, having meetings, and enjoying the beach life. You just... More

I am not a fan of Starbucks at all, so this is my "go to" place. Too, I like to get tea when I go out, so this place works! I like that it has a patio with tables and chairs in the front. Great place to people watch.

We go there almost every morning for a coffee as our dogs can sit in the patio area while we meet and greet with friends. The manager is very friendly and they have a great array of morning drinks to please everyone.

One coffee shop is a bit like any other - although this one was clearly very popular with its clientele, very busy for a mid-morning.

We had hopes for this to be great coffee based on the ratings, however, the coffee was very average as the milk was burned and the espresso over done.

If you are looking for a good Italian style cappuccino- this is the place to go. The atmosphere is good trendy coffee house and the coffee is very good. On our second trip to Manhattan Beach we headed straight there and were not disappointed.

I really only called in here to sneakily access their wifi (tourist), but of course ordered something to drink - an iced chocolate. It was delicious - not your usual iced chocolate. Service was also genuinely friendly and efficient. I was tempted to buy some of their products to take home, but as this was my 1st day of a... More
