Rise and grind! This week’s featured coffee shop is Hermosa’s oldest coffee shop which has been serving South Bay residents for 24 years, Java Man Coffee House. Java man is located on Pier Avenue and is less than a mile from the  beach. I mean, who doesn’t love a good cup of joe by the ocean?! What intrigued us about this 1920’s style coffee shop is the cozy vibe it radiates. The shop resembles a unique red bungalow which transmits a friendly and homey atmosphere. This spot is perfect for visitors to grab a cup of coffee, homemade pastry or breakfast burrito and enjoy a day at Hermosa Beach. Seriously, breakfast burritos and good coffee can make any morning great. Yes, even Monday mornings and mornings after a long night out of drinking. We don’t judge.


A wise person once said, “you can’t buy happiness” but you sure can buy coffee…and breakfast burritos! There are four options of breakfast burritos to choose from-chorizo burrito, bacon burrito, veggie burrito and turkey burrito. The type of coffee served is your basic hot coffee, latte, cappuccino, iced coffee and blended beverages. However, they do have specialty drinks such as a blended Mexican Mocha. They also serve soups, salads,sandwiches, panini’s and homemade baked goods. So next time you’re in Hermosa beach and are in need of a pick-me-up make sure you drop by Java Man for a good ol’ cup of joe.

With that being said, always remember that behind every successful person is a substantial amount of coffee.
