Coffee Commissary: LA's Latest Java Spot

Drink
Food

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.   

 

Perfect Pairings 

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.  

 

Sit, Sip, Shop 

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.

Black-owned Beauty and Wellness Businesses to Know

February is Black History Month—a celebration of the achievements and contributions of African Americans in society.  As the beauty and wellness industry becomes a more welcoming and inclusive space for all, we are taking this opportunity to continue to shine a light on the gap of inclusivity and diversity in our industry, and take action to promote, empower, and honor the Black community that shapes and grows wellness.  

While the beauty industry is making improvements—it's important to showcase and support Black businesses and the creatives in this space every day. To honor them, we're shouting out some of our favorite Black-owned beauty and wellness businesses to support. 

1. Beauty Bin 

Beauty Bin is a full-service day spa and dry bar located in Asheville, NC. With a focus on inclusivity for people of all backgrounds, genders, and races, their MO is to match the outer beauty of every client to their inner beauty. From eyelash extensions and hydrafacials to waxing and massage, Beauty Bin is a one-stop-shop for all the spa services.  
 

2. KIKA Stretch Studio  

The KIKA Method® is a gentle assisted stretching process that loosens up tight muscles freeing your body from pain and stress. By practicing this method, clients can experience decreased muscle tension, increased energy, enhanced flexibility, a substantial reduction in stress, improved posture and relaxation, and increased mental clarity. While its headquarters is located in Las Vegas, NV, they have multiple locations sprinkled throughout the US, including Atlanta, New York City, and Dallas—just to name a few.

3. Kimberly Coleman Salon 

At Kimberly Coleman Salon, their philosophy begins with promoting healthy tresses, elegant sets, unique accouterments, perfect pampering of hands and feet, and precision cuts. Known for working with models and celebrities, they fully appreciate and celebrate the diversity of their clientele which also includes super moms and warrior dads. 

4. Pressed Roots 

Pressed Roots was developed with the simple concept in mind—that everyone deserves access to easy, and quality hair care. What started as a single pop-up shop in Boston, grew to a multi-city pop-up tour, and is now slated to be the largest national hair salon franchise specializing in the care and styling of highly textured hair, they launched their first flagship location in Dallas, TX.  

5. SW3AT  

Jersey City resident, Alyza Brevard-Rodriguez started SW3AT. The company began as a fitness apparel line in 2015 but evolved into a sanctuary catered to health and wellness now known as SW3AT Sauna Studio—the first infrared sauna studio in Jersey City. The healing power of infrared heat therapy is a phenomenal option for holistic health proven to strengthen the immune system and provide relief from joint stiffness and muscle pain. It is also supportive of any fitness program as it aids in weight loss (you can torch up to 900 calories in a 45-minute session) while also detoxifying your body from some of the most harmful toxins. 

6. The TEN Nail Bar 

Kelli Coleman and Anika Jackson opened The TEN Nail Bar in Detroit to address a void in their city. They saw a need for a quality, modern nail bar that could also serve as a fun social space for Detroit’s residents and professionals. They designed the TEN to provide their clients with a #Perfect10 experience—where you can relax, enjoy music, a drink, your friends, a clean and precise manicure, and a much-needed break from all your hectic days. 

7. Bettye O Day Spa 

Located in the beautiful downtown Hyde Park Chicago area, Bettye O Day Spa specializes in first-class treatments. They aim to nurture and relax each of their clients with individualized and innovative therapeutic techniques. From body wraps and massages to facials and hydrotherapy, this day spa promises to be a safe place for healing to occur.
