L.A. Writing Spot Review #6: Head West! Then stop at the Krispy Kreme.

IMG_2266

If you’re in Santa Monica and want to get some work done in a surprisingly accommodating space, head to the Krispy Kreme.  The ambiance is intentionally designed to evoke a bygone era (think later seasons Mad Men) but not in a particularly classy or thoughtful way.  The tile on the walls and the yellow/greenish color scheme has a very clinical feel to it.

What it lacks in style, though, it more than makes up in other areas for laptop slaves like me — ample seating with access to power outlets, free wifi, and, of course, a wide selection of freshly baked Krispy Kreme doughnuts — an uncommon sight in the L.A. area (and one that is largely unappreciated by the lifelong residents of surrounding Santa Monica).  This location also has a Coffee Bean counter offering most (if not all) of the Coffee Bean drink menu.

Delicious doughnuts + Good caffeinated beverages + laptop-friendly seating = A decent place to kill some time and get some work done.

  1. All the places you’ve blogged about so far sound great. Unfortunately, I’m way up in the Valley, Chatsworth to be exact, so I don’t live anywhere near these locations. I do occasionally write i n McG’s Irish Pub at the corner of Devonshire and Canoga. They’ve got a lot of space, great beer selection and it’s usually not to busy.
