Whenever I come back home, I make it a point to explore more coffee shops in LA, especially since LA is such a trendy and aesthetic-friendly place. I've heard of Maru Coffee, and I decided to go there with my parents. It was a cute spot, with a minimal Japanese-inspired design. It was warm inside because of the beautiful wide windows allowing plenty of light in, but I felt cooler as I sipped on my iced latte. My dad's cappuccino was delicious--smooth and strong. I will definitely be back here.
