What’s good in DTLA?

Here you’ll find everything you need to know about your city, from hidden gems to trending hotspots.

How Do You Take Your Coffee?

Our apartments in DTLA are just steps from the city’s best coffee shops!

For many of us, coffee is much more than a drink. It’s a fundamental part of our day. And the better the coffee, the better the day. Which is what makes living close to a great coffee shop such a plus.


At Axis on Twelfth and Axis on Eleventh, great coffee is always close by. In fact, when you make one of our apartments in DTLA your home, you’ll be steps from some of the absolute best coffee shops in the city. Whether you prefer lattes or cappuccinos, flavor-infused concoctions or black-and-unsweetened mugfuls, you’ll find a coffee shop that makes your drink the right way, every day.


Some of the best coffee shops within a few blocks of our apartments in DTLA include:


Loit Café

301 W. Olympic Boulevard

7-minute walk from Axis


If you like sleek and modern, you’ll love Loit Café, a new addition to the DTLA coffee scene, attached to the Loit lifestyle and apparel store. Offering a variety of coffees, including their signature black “charcoal” coffees, the café also has plenty of bites to eat and lots of charging stations, so you can work while you sip.



1115 S. Hope Street

9-minute walk from Axis


Offering a creative selection of coffees, teas, sandwiches and toasts in a simple yet intimate setting, Impresso is a welcoming place to start the day or spend a quiet afternoon. Try one of their flavored lattes for a taste of something new and one of their piled-high toasts for a little taste of comfort.


Cognoscenti Coffee

1118 San Julian Street

11-minute walk from Axis


Tucked in the Fashion District, this downtown outpost of the popular Los Angeles mini-chain is a great place to grab a good coffee on-the-go or to sit and enjoy a drink before you start your day. They even have a ping pong table, if you’re feeling playful.


Hashtag Coffee & Tea

227 W. 8th Street

11-minute walk from Axis


Serving up your favorite coffee drinks, a wide variety of teas and an impressive selection of smoothies and slushes, this is one place that meets just about every taste. And they serve a full menu, too, including breakfast burritos, omelets, quesadillas, paninis, sandwiches and salads.


No Ghost Bears

305 E. 8th Street, Unit 3

15-minute walk from Axis


Modern and a little funky, No Ghost Bears serves up locally sourced and in-house roasted coffee, along with a choice selection of pastries and other bites. The store works hard to be as environmentally friendly as it can, while still being incredibly friendly to you.


Don’t Miss Your Chance!

Shouldn’t coffee be more than a mass-marketed drink served in a cup with a misspelled name? And shouldn’t your apartment home be more than the same-old box in a faceless neighborhood?

But not everyone will get the chance to live here. Stop by today for a tour. Then sign your lease and get ready to move into one of the best apartments in DTLA.
