The smell of freshly-made croissants is all I needed to make the switch from the huge coffee chains in South Los Angeles to my new favorite Vieta Coffee.
Not only are most of the pastries made in house, but the location is small and cozy the way coffee shops should be.
Vieta is located off of Figueroa, just past 30th Street in a small shopping plaza.
The coffee shop offers a 10 percent discount to students (including high school students) and has a point system that gives you a free 12 ounce drink after you buy 6. As if this wasn’t enough incentive, Vieta offers free Wi-Fi.
I’m a coffee person and I believe that a coffee shop experience should be personal. After a very long search, I think I may have found my place.
