I'm visiting some relatives in California for a bit. I've taken in many of the great places to eat in the LA area in the times I have been here but I'm still stumped on one item that should be simple to find.
At home I make my own coffee in the morning but when I am away I usually pick some up. My choices in the Commerce/East LA/Montebello area I am staying in (as far as I know) are Starbucks, Coffee Bean, 7-Eleven, and local delis. Today I tried Chapala Bakery based on an article in the LA Times. Let me just sum up the coffee in one word: overrated. Any locals know of a good spot for tasty morning coffee or am I stuck with the chains?
