Kindness & Mischief Coffee

5537 N Figueroa St, Los Angeles, CA 90042, USA

Editor's Review

Kindness & Mischief Coffee, whose name references a Mary Oliver poem, launched in 2016 thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign effort to bring a neighborhood-centric café to Figueroa Boulevard. K&M is a spot that has now become a go-to for a friendly face, as well as a unique aesthetic contrast to the clean interior design you'll find in many LA cafes otherwise.

The café feels homey without being claustrophobic, comparable to a spacious living room thanks to its mix of handmade tables and benches, plus a rotating curation of local art on display. An accent brick wall retains the essence of its original jewelry store occupants, and splashes of teal and orange create an overall approachable atmosphere for both coffee novices and aficionados.

While Kindness & Mischief regularly rotates between Long Beach's Rose Park Roasters and Take Flight Coffee, the gang is always trying out one new roaster over another, typically via weekend pour-overs and drip coffee. Aside from the usual milk-espresso drinks, try out a sweet seasonal special from the list of small homemade specialties, and get a taste of Filipino flavors from the Creme Caramel pastry selection. For an added effort of Kindness over Mischief, the "Kind Cup" menu item gives the barista an opportunity to gift a customer in need of a boost and a smile with a drip coffee.
