Review: Espresso Profeta

Espresso Profeta drink Espresso Profeta outside

Westwood’s Espresso Profeta is one of those places that reminds you of happy places and better times: before the coffee-moguls and drive-thru shops on the sides of freeways.

The small shop caters to UCLA students and local business-people, even remembering names of regulars. Its coffee is pricey, but the beans are from Seattle’s Espresso Vivace (where co-owner Mitche Hale used to work) and the baristas know the right proportions for espressos and cappuccinos. Their specialty drinks are also worth a try: the White Velvet ($4) is a fancy name for a white mocha, but comes out rich and with just the right-sweetness.
