Daily Dose

Fueling up on coffee has quickly become part of our morning routine. We tend to splurge a little bit more on a cup of joe on the weekends--partially to treat ourselves after a hard work week, but mostly because we love finding cool spaces to hang out in as we start our day. In a land where cute coffee shops are bountiful, there's always a new place to visit in Downtown LA. One weekend, we decided to visit Daily Dose Cafe. Tucked away in the Arts District, this literal hole in the wall cafe was a unique and quiet place to grab brunch on Saturday morning. With fairy lights strung above and vines overtaking the walls, the outside seating area was quite cozy despite being in an alleyway between two brick buildings. Rain or shine, we will always order an iced coffee, and this cup of cold brew didn't disappoint.

One of the best parts about blogging is definitely the people you get to meet through it. I've known Sybil of Animated Confessions for years now. She runs a lifestyle blog that follows her adventures in Winnipeg. With a shared love for coffee, we wanted to collaborate on a post featuring local cafes. Long before Brandon and I started this blog, I used to run a personal style blog. A couple years and NYFWs later, I realized that my creative needs were different and so this blog was born, but the friendships I've made over the years have remained the same. Head on over to Sybil's blog to check out her visit to Folio Cafe!

  4. Awesome collaboration with Sybil, I love both your guys' blogs! And as a fellow coffee addict, I loved reading about the different coffee shops you guys got to check out in your areas! It inspires me to go beyond the nearest Starbucks and try a local small coffee shop instead :)

  5. A day is always amazing when it starts with a great coffee <3
    more collab pa with Sybil! hehehe excited for your next adventures! <3

    love lots,


  6. that space/spot is a hidden gem!! love the lights, back-alley location and all the yummy eats!

    this turned out really well. It's quite a shame for me that I'm giving up coffee for Lent (hence I got tea in my post). we should totally do another collab (maybe add other bloggers too!)!
