Finally stopped in to the new M Street Coffee place on Moorpark at the corner of Longridge (13251 Moorpark, one block east of Fulton) that I have been watching under construction for the past several months. Who do I run into but Gene Liebenau, former owner of Jinky's, who has just opened this coffee emporium in an easily passed-by location?
The super-nice manager, Andrea McClain, made up for the locational liabilities with a warm and friendly welcome. I decided to just try a cup of coffee - no specialty drinks for the first visit!
Well, the organic Volcan blend of 5 different beans do make for a very nice cup of brewed coffee. Slightly bitter backside, yet very pleasant overall experience. In fact, better than the cup I usually have at Pane Dolce not too far away and definitely better than any cup of brewed stuff from the Coffee Roaster, also nearby. And only $1.50 for a generous small-size.
They also have muffins and, while not a chocolate-lover, Wally biscotti which looked extremely good, yet I did not indulge. Nicely done place, some seating, including a couple of outdoor tables.
Open 7-6pm M-F, and 8-5 Sat and Sun.
