Since moving to LA, Handsome has become more than coffee for Drew and I. Yes their coffee is dreamy and they obviously get their name from some where (handsome barristas run that joint) but more than delicious drinks and tasty treats it is the people who both work and live there (I say live because Drew and I practically do, so it makes me feel better when I see the same regulars in every day with us) who make it worth the visit. We have developed a community and discovered that there really are amazing people in this giant city if you know where to find them; and Handsome is a gold mine of goodies.
For the remainder of April I have the immense honor of being featured as their “instgrammer of the month” (if my grandma read this she would respond “Oh, that’s nice sweetie” and then ask someone near by for a translation). They will be posting photos to their feed that I have taken and I will (continue to) talk incessantly about how much I love them on my own.
If you live in the LA area stop in and tell them Kelsey Zahn sent you, high-five the barristas and sit at the counter to enjoy your 5oz’s of heaven in a cup. If you live far away, I am sorry. Come for a visit and I will take you straight to Handsome so you can see what all the commotion is about.
Now, if you are suspect and thinking “there is no way a coffee shop can be that cool” then I simply feel sad for you. They are more then just cool… they are fan-freaking-tastic (mom I edited that one just for you!). Don’t believe me? Last week Drew and I had company and of course we had to show them Handsome. They were planning on stopping in for a coffee and Guerilla Tacos and then heading to Poketo and Apolis to shop. Did that happen? No! They ended up eating (destroying) their tacos, drinking two coffees each and stayed at Handsome with us for over four hours because they enjoyed the people and atmosphere so much. That is the power of Handsome my friends!
Thank you to Handsome, Drew and I love you guys!
To the rest of you damn handsome individuals, cheers from my mug to yours.
