LA Guide: Make Out Cafe

Make out everyday? Don’t mind if I do…

 One of my favorite things about LA is the abundance of aesthetically-pleasing yet downright delicious cafes. I have college to thank for my addiction to coffee, and the shops I’d spend most of my afternoons studying in and working on videos. The hours I spend each week editing content creates an element of solitude, so I crave an inspiring environment to get to work. Hence my love for cafes: the stomping grounds for fellow caffeine enthusiasts to get their fix while getting shit done. A place to mingle, collaborate, and people-watch (obligatory).

 Welcome to Make Out, a cafe that promises everyday plant food, set in the heart of downtown Culver City. When I first strolled past this place, I was drawn in by the plump silhouette of lips that almost seem to be drooling–a great foreshadow for what I’d look like shortly after trying their chai for the first time. 100% vegan and 90% raw, Make Out provides a breezy experience for health connoisseurs looking to get their daily dose of fuel. Any fellow veg heads can back me up when I say not having to scour a menu for the limited veg options is as close to paradise as it gets.

Find a variety of fresh juices, smoothies, and your standard coffee and specialty drinks. I must admit, I keep going back to the almond milk chai tea latte. You can also sub brazil nut or pumpkin seed milk if that’s more your jam. They say when you find a good chai, you don’t let it go…okay maybe I just say that. They hold a special place in my heart okay? It can be difficult finding that perfect chai–not overly sweet, the right amount of spice, not watered down. This baby checked off all the boxes, so if you’re unsure of what to order, try this! Something I am not a big fan of is their matcha latte, but I am very picky when it comes to this drink! I’m into the westernized version of the drink, typically with a milk (as opposed to water) and slightly sweetened. They’re always a hit or miss with me, as they are often way too sweet, or taste like straight up water with a hint of tea. If you enjoy the latter, you would like their version, but for me it lacked that hint of sweetness and creaminess I crave in a matcha.

Don’t get me started on the aesthetics of this place, because I will not stop raving about it. Prepare to walk into an open, clean and modern space. Crisp and white with a pop of nature, like this wall plant. Oh my gosh, I want this in my apartment so badly!

Whether you live in LA or are planning a visit, consider adding Make Out to your list of pit stops, or bring a book or your laptop and stay awhile. I adore the airy yet cozy environment to spend an afternoon or catch up with a friend. It’s nestled in the charming plaza of Culver City, so you can walk around and explore the historic Culver Hotel next door, catch a movie at the Arclight, do some shopping at the nearby Platform, or stroll to the nearest production studio.

Have you been to Make Out? What are your favorite cafes here in LA, or in your town? Do you prefer an airy, calm coffee shop, or a dark, rustic kind of vibe? I wanna know your thoughts!

    Love these photos!! I live in Maryland but near my house we have this really cool coffee shop that’s locally owned by Ethiopian owners, and it’s really cozy and has a ton of energy. Their chai lattes are also amazing 🙂

    I applied for a home loan few weeks ago but did not qualify. The last time I went through my credit report there were all sorts of things on my record including messed up addresses, bankruptcy and tax liens to dispute, and the companies all dropped it off my record. After searching through the internet for help I found this email and number on FHA blog (HACKNET421@GMAIL.COM / +1 344 052 941) The good news is that he increased my credit scores to 803, removed tax liens, eviction and bankruptcy off my report, he increased my credit limit and credit leverage. Still surprised at how it’s just so fast and easy to push the dispute button at the credit agency website with this hacker. He just did mine and asked me to check back in 5 days and I confirmed already my credit score is at 803, the negative and derogatory items fell off. You can contact him and worry no more on buying a home with low credit scores. Hope this helps everyone looking for help.

    760 Plus Credit Score remains the best credit expertise I have known. I had seven negative things on my credit that were holding me back. One of them is from Capital one another from Sears whom I paid off and I am not sure of the others but they are both 11 years old. I filed bankruptcy 11 years ago and settled with all of these. My attention was called that they are still on my reports I recently got referred by my pastor to hire (760pluscreditscore@gmail.com or +1(304) -774 -5902) which I did and he helped me fix my credit and my score improved by a huge leap 250pts. I recommend anyone that needs to fix his or her credit to get through with him. He is good at what he does.

    Hi, I’m Donald Morgan from GA. After having multiple bad experiences with credit repair companies and figuring out the credit score they told me they boosted was actually false and the negatives on my report wasn’t cleaned I tried Rock Base…I want to publicly appreciate the effort for helping me increase my credit score when I was suffering from a very low score and was unable to meet up to my standard level. My score suddenly shot up 801(excellent score) within 7 days. I happened to meet this dude on Quora and contacted him (ROCKBASE@PROTONMAIL.COM/ +1 (972) 449-1968). Sincerely, I’m pleased after everything he did for me. He didn’t charge so much but delivered on his part. Contact him for all sort of credit repair; he will be willing to help you.

    Permit me to introduce this life saver Lexington Law is so frustrating because I was with them for 3 years and my score only jumped by 20 points, only 3 items got deleted but when I got introduced to Rock Base Credit Repair, my instincts told me this is the solution to my credit profile. My instincts never lied and they really got me 835 FICO score before 4 weeks as promised. Quickly contact ROCKBASE@PROTONMAIL.COM/+1 (972) 449-1968.
