The laid-back, sunny and healthy lifestyle of Australia blends perfectly with Los Angeles, so it only makes sense that Aussie-inspired cafes - mostly serving all-day “brekkie” and lunch menus - is now trending. And there are more on the way, like Roo Coffee from Brisbane ex-pats, Elyse Goyen and Tom and Kate O’Connor.
Coffee isn’t just a drink in Australia, it’s a culture. From meticulous preparation by highly-trained baristas to the manner it is consumed, Aussies enjoy their espresso-based drinks like the flat white and long black while sitting in a casual café. Accompaniments often include pastries, savory pies, egg sandwiches, grilled cheese, healthful bowls of grains or oats—or variations of "toast," including the ubiquitous avocado version that originated in Melbourne. And of course there's Vegemite, a salty spread made from brewer’s yeast that's also indigenous to the "Land Down Under.” There are also sweet specialties like Lamington (chocolate-covered sponge cake rolled in coconut), Tim Tam (two malted biscuits covered in chocolate and filled with cream), and Anzac biscuits made with oatmeal. Check out these eleven L.A. cafes that combine the coastal influences of California and Australia for a sampling of the best coffee and food for a relaxing time-out in your day.
