Serving the same excellent baking as the now-defunct Corbeaux Bakehouse, Analog’s three locations also showcase the gourmet artisan coffee of Fratello Coffee Roasters. Stop in for an espresso and a croissant and taste simplicity at its finest.

Gravity Espresso & Wine Bar
The wonderful thing about Inglewood’s Gravity is its versatility. A quick morning coffee and granola to-go? Check. A business meeting? Check. House-made soup and sandwiches? Check. A first date? Check. A second date? Well, that depends on you.

Higher Ground Cafe
Open for 33 years now, this community-minded caf has an extensive menu that can keep you fed if you’re hunkered down working there from dawn ’til midnight. Look for creative variations on organic tea mistos.

Rosso Coffee Roasters
With multiple locations serving signature roasted beans and showcasing local art on the walls, it’s hard not to be charmed by Rosso. Start your day with the simple cheddar biscuit breakfast sandwich with a coffee. Because sometimes less is more.
