La La Land Kind Cafe Is On A Mission In Santa Monica

While I’ve been watching the transformation of the former Starbucks at 1426 Montana Ave Ste. 4 (corner of 15th), it was a reader (Thanks again, Kurt!) who sleuthed out the next tenant.  While no signs are up yet, I had a chance to speak with someone inside who confirmed what Kurt had discovered: This is to be California’s first branch of Texas’ La La Land Kind Cafe.  And what is that?  La La Land is a “socially conscious” cafe on a mission to “normalize kindness” by hiring foster youth who, when they turn 18, are often aged out of the system with few supports.  I don’t have any confirmation that this will be the model here, but La La Land provides real opportunity and apparently some really good coffee.  They offer an extensive menu of coffee and tea, signature drinks, and toasts.  We sincerely wish the the best of luck.
