"One for One," that's the motton of TOM'S shoes and now the motto of TOM'S Roasting Company who are in business to improve lives. For every bag of coffee you purchase at the coffee bar, TOM'S will
give one week of clean water to a person in need. The fantastic, rich coffee from TOM'S come from all different regions like Rwanda, Malawi, and Guatemala. The beans eventually end up in this charming cafe in Venice where they are brewed into the perfect
cup of coffee. We stopped in for a freshly brewed cup of organic, delicious drip coffee. ($2, refill $1). The confections by Valeries include Seasonal Teacakes ($5), Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies ($3), and Vegan Hand Pies ($6). But that's not all! Shop
for sunglasses and original TOM'S shoes in the back of the store or buy a magazine up at the front. Take it to the outside seating area in the back. Make sure to bring your laptop or ipad too so you'll fit in with the hipsters conducting business
or writing the next great best- seller from chairs on the lawn. Tom's Coffee Bar 1344 Abbot Kinney Blvd. Venice (800) 975-8667. Hours M-F 6:00 a.m.- 8:00 p.m. Sat 7:00 a.m.- 9:00 p.m. Sun 7:00 am- 8:00 p.m.
