Coffee House Heyri - Los Angeles (Koreatown)

Coffee House Heyri - Los Angeles (Koreatown) 1

The day after my lunch at Soot Bul Gui Rim 2 Korean BBQ - Los Angeles (Koreatown), my friend Ivan came into town and was staying in Koreatown. He wanted to meet up for coffee in the late afternoon. Phew! Because I'm not sure if I was up for another round of Korean barbecue so soon. Oh who am I kidding? I'm usually up for Korean barbecue, just not that particular day. :P

In the past few years, there has been a slew of higher-end coffee shops opening in Koreatown charging premium prices for so-so coffee. They've been popular because the coffee shops themselves are much nicer than average, sometimes with private rooms, they're open late, and they have free Wi-Fi. I remembered a post on Coffee House Heyri that Jeannie of The World is My Oyster so I suggested it to my friend. Turned out, he was staying just a few blocks away.

Coffee House Heyri was in a really nice converted house. But it was much too nice of a day to stay indoors so I walked straight through to the backyard. Plus, I figured it'd be easier for my friend to locate me than to wander around inside.

We ordered the Heyri coffee, which cost $5.35! The coffee was "meh" at best.

The cafe also offers a variety of drinks, shakes, teas, and coffees. They also have food such as udon, ramen, sushi, pasta, kimchi fried rice, shaved ice, and pastries.

And tarot card readings from Mondays to Saturdays. Haha. I know! Random, right?

After a couple of hours of catching up, it was time to go.

If I wanted to get work done, I'd rather sit at a Chinese boba cafe, $2 milk tea and free Wi-Fi. But for atmosphere, I have to admit the fancy coffee shop looks pretty swanky.

Who else went to Coffee House Heyri?

  1. That is expensive coffee! But, yeah, quite an oasis.

  2. WeeMo,
    I know! And it wasn't even good. But I had a nice location to catch up with my friend, so that's what I was really paying for.
