10 Speed Coffee Pedals Into Sawtelle Japantown

It looks like bicycle-themed java joint 10 Speed Coffee is expanding.  There is a new sign up on the space at 1947 S Sawtelle Blvd B confirming the news.  10 Speed has locations in Santa Monica and Calabasas, and appears close to opening this location.

10 Speed Coffee Coming To Santa Monica

Thanks to a tip from a reader, I went to check out what was happening on the corner of 20th and Santa Monica Blvd. in Santa Monica.  Signs are up announcing that a branch of the popular Calabasas bicycle-themed restaurant and coffee shop Pedaler’s Fork is landing a spot at 1919 Santa Monica Blvd.  (The northwest corner of the intersection, not the recently vacated Rudy & Hudson Diner spot.)  And while the non-responsibility notice taped to the front door lists Pedaler’s Fork as the tenant, at least according to the recently posted signs, this outpost is going to be 10 Speed Coffee, which is the name of their house coffee.  It looks like they have a way to go yet, so I’ll keep watching for an opening date.
