There’s no denying that the craft coffee culture has created a major buzz in LA. But whether you’re totally immersed in it, or you prefer to stick with your go-to neighborhood cafe, chances are you’ve heard of Coffee Commissary.
The Los Angeles-born chain’s bright, modern, and pink-themed locations, delicious coffee blends, and tasty eats have helped it gain a reputation as one of the best caffeine stops in the city. And its latest outpost at the revamped Beverly Center means you can now count on the perfect pour-over when you’re in the 90210.
Locally owned and operated, Coffee Commissary prides itself on showcasing coffee beans from a variety of single-origin roasters, allowing them to focus on creating a sought-after experience and flavorful, well-known brews.
They’ve got the classics—Americano, Cappuccino, Vanilla Latte; you name it—along with latte art that’s almost too pretty to drink (almost). You can’t go wrong with their aforementioned hand-brewed, pour-over coffee. But if you’re looking for more than your typical cup of joe, go for their bubbly Espresso Lime Spritzer.
And don’t let the name fool you — Coffee Commissary does much more than coffee. If you’re hungry, order up one of their creative breakfast bites (Smoked Salmon Toast, anyone?), bowls, or burritos for a solid meal that’s sure to hit the spot. On the baked goods front, you can expect treats with a healthy(ish) twist. Think nine-grain flaxseed muffins, whole wheat croissants, and a flourless chocolate cake you won’t want to share.
Plus, with free Wi-Fi, friendly staff, and music that’s on point (seriously, you’re going to want to cue up your Shazam app), the laid-back, easy atmosphere at this local cafe concept is hard to match.
Swing by Coffee Commissary Beverly any day of the week and enjoy your favorite bevvie at a table overlooking Beverly Blvd. Or, snag a to-go cup and get your steps in while perusing some of the best shops LA has to offer. If you’re not in the neighborhood — no worries. With locations in Hollywood, Burbank, West Hollywood, Culver City, Santa Monica, and Glendale, you can refuel no matter where in the city you find yourself.
Approximately 12,000 women aged 40 or younger are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*. Fortunately, there are preventative steps that we can take to help protect ourselves and each other—one of the best ones being exercise. That’s right. Not only does exercise help us release endorphins, but just 30 minutes of exercise three to four times per week can help decrease a person’s risk of developing breast cancer by 30–50%*.
This is hope in a statistic. Just by adopting a more healthy, active lifestyle, we could prevent the risk of developing breast cancer, while also inspiring others to reduce their risk as well. Keep A Breast Foundation has made doing just this their mission through their annual fundraising campaign, Fit 4 Prevention.
Every October, studios from all over the globe participate by raising money through donation-based workout classes for the Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB). They have created a national movement dedicated to educating others about breast cancer prevention through fitness and wellness—something Mindbody is extremely passionate about. Participating in your favorite activities, all while supporting, preventing, and spreading awareness about breast cancer awareness? Let’s get moving.
If you want to take a donation-based class at your favorite studio, encourage your favorite studios to sign up to bring your community closer together in a meaningful way. Registering is quick and easy. If you think your local studio may be interested in participating, have them check out KAB’s help page—where they can learn how to register for a donation-based class during the month of October. KAB even has a social media kit available to fitness studios to help them promote their donation-based classes.
Can’t find a local studio to take a donation-based class near you? Don’t worry, you can still give your support by donating directly to KAB’s website. Luckily, any time that you are moving your body and spreading the word—you’re doing your part in spreading awareness on how to help prevent breast cancer. That is beyond amazing.
This October, we hope you’ll join us in our plight to support the KAB Foundation and its mission to help prevent breast cancer through cultivating a healthier, more active lifestyle. Through movement, health, and wellness—we can reach great heights, together.
