Do you ever have one of those days where you just need to get out of the house? Well lucky for you, the local coffee shop is just minutes away. Coffee shops provide a place for those to study, read, or meet up with friends. Each coffee shop has its aesthetic as well as its pros and cons. Here are some of the best coffee shops in Long Beach, along with reasons why we like each one. 

Best Coffee Shops in Long Beach: 

Philz Coffee - Originating in San Francisco, this popular coffee-chain has begun to make its way down south. Located on 2nd street in Belmont Shores, this shop offers a variety of drinks such as their popular Mint Mojito. Our other favorites include the Ecstatic, Philtered Soul, & Iced Coffee Rose. This Philz Coffee location has lots of windows and seating space which makes it a great place to meet or study during the day time. The only con is that it closes at 8 PM. Other Southern California locations include Huntington Beach and Irvine. 

The Library A Coffee House - Staying open until midnight, this coffee shop has become a popular place for students to study. With a variety of drinks and food, you can easily spend a whole day there getting your work done. There is a decent amount of seating, but since it's so popular they are usually filled up. If you want to find a seat, be sure to go around 7 PM-9 PM.
