Every town needs a great local coffee shop and Java Man is Hermosa's Classic coffee and dessert bar. I'm not a big coffee drinker but really love their hot chocolate. I don't know what secret recipe that they use- but it's always velvety and super chocolatey ( is that a word?). Hubby orders a coffee with room or a latte-... More

In the very small Hermosa Beach downtown, close to everything. Coffee is great, but bake goods are better. Fresh fruit also. Great place to meet friends. Busy but they are fast so it doesn't seen like its crowded. Service is great, with a very friendly staff.

Locals seem to like the coffee, but the worker-owner, I don't know, with the short, shaved black hair and stubble is mean and rude. I actually came in while they were closing and said good afternoon, and the man didn't even acknowledge me. When I returned in the morning opening the door, he returned the evil eye. Thankfully, I did... More

Java Man has been around forever. Decent coffee, wifi, muffins, and sandwiches. It's all standard fare, but it's usually not as busy as your standard Starbucks. There is some outdoors seating available. Since it is a few blocks from the beach, tourists tend not to find this place (which is a good thing). Go Java Man!

We found this place through Yelp reviews and it was a great spot for our morning coffee and fresh OJ. The inside wasn't overly welcoming or comfortable but the patio tables outside were a great place to sit in the morning sun.

What an amazing find. Calm, friendly atmosphere at all times of the day. Indoor and our door seating or take away options. The best not for me..a different flavoured gluten free muffin baked each morning!

But, after ordering your coffee in cramped space you will want to actually sit down and enjoy coffee/breakfast in the comfy/down home seating area. Relax with good tunes, enjoy a good cup of joe and burrito or pastry.
