A a quiet "study" cafe where readers and laptop users spend hours nursing a cup of coffee or oolong tea, with a large coconut macaroon or slice of Sweet Lady Jane cake... Known for having soy milk available, which is a great consideration for the lactose intolerant.

Japanese-run sushi restaurant on Beverly Boulevard. On the menu: Truffle Kanpachi (amberjack), Asahi It’s your neighborhood hipster sushi hangout.  Solid food at a reasonable price, and done in a more Japanese style than you’ll often find in our beloved Ktown.  It’s cash only though, so be sure to carry paper. – Ryan M.
