Cafecito Organico

Map & Directions 710 N. Heliotrope Drive
Los Angeles, CA 90029


LA Weekly's Description

Cafecito Orgánico, the coffee shop and roastery that began life as a farmers market stall and once operated out of a back room of Mama's Hot Tamales near MacArthur Park, is expanding. Not like a little expansion, but the kind of proliferation suggesting that everybody needs access to higher-quality caffeine. Angel Orozco and Mitch Hale have partnered with designer John M. Sofio (the Beverly, Pink Taco Sunset) to open two Malibu locations in recent years, with additional locations in downtown L.A., Burbank, Echo Park, Venice, Pasadena, Torrance and Orange County now also open or on the way. As it expands, Cafecito Organico can’t help but lose some of its mom-and-pop charm, but the brand's signature skeleton imagery and Hecho a mano window decals painted by artist Julio Turuno make even the newer locations feel less like a Starbucks and more like the beloved, community-drive coffee chain that it really is.

    1 of the "10 Places to Get a Damn Good Cup of Coffee"!

    Right next to L.A. City College, it has a rich, artisanal roast but with none of the other stifling coffee shop pretensions - plus they play great music! They also offer coffee-making classes.

    Order the cafecito for a quick super yummy buzz.... The cookies are always so good.

    Watch them take your order with a iPad. :)

    The mocha, made with unsweetened cacao, is a terrific drink.
