Right off the 10 freeway before you hit the Arts District, you’ll find Maru Coffee, a quiet, chill vibes sorta coffee shop that serves exceptional coffee. Though I haven’t tried everything on the menu, I can definitely vouch for the Cream Top. Ever since my friend’s obsession with Happy Lemon rubbed off on me, I’ve gotten really into drinks that are topped with salty or sweet foam-like cream which is why when I spotted Cream Top, I ordered it right away. It’s one of their signature drinks but it also seems like their matcha is also a popular drink you might want to try.
Maru Coffee has a very airy, open space with a lot of natural light with minimalist aesthetics that give it an overall “chill vibe.” I could see how parking might be difficult but we got lucky finding a parking spot on the street right outside on a Saturday afternoon. If you’re ever headed into the busyness of the Arts District, make sure you make a pit stop at Maru Coffee.
