I'm looking for a coffee shop to hang out during the weekends - take my laptop and do some browsing, working, reading or meeting friends over a cup of tea or just people-watch.

I had been hanging out at The Library LB, but of late, I'm finding it too gloomy and need a replacement - someplace that's got a little bit more character (and better tea) than Starbucks.

I've been trying out a lot of places (Urth Cafe, Peets, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, It's a Grind, Panera's etc) but mostly had situations where it's difficult to get a table or there's people hovering to take your seat the minute you are done with your cup. At Urth, I spent more time trying to find a parking spot than I spent over the cup of tea, not to mention paid more for parking than the tea too.

The main thing I guess is wifi, easy parking and enough seating, anywhere along the beach (Santa Monica to Huntington Beach). Oh, and decent cup of tea won't hurt.

Thanks in advance.

Santa Monica, actually. But really, parking problem is the same everywhere.

I did have a favorite coffee hangout in Windsor Hills that I'd be happy to recommend to you, except it went out of business last year. I had no problem parking there.

R.I.P. Mia's Coffee at Slauson & Overhill.
