Uplifters Kitchen is an aptly named little coffee spot on Ocean Park near the EA buildings in Santa Monica. This new spot opened in June and added a little caffeinated brightness to an already surprisingly pedestrian street. Serving Stumptown Coffee and an appetizing array of snacks and small meals, Uplifters really put a smile on my face. Add to that casual friendly service and excellently brewed coffee and this is a clear winner. The location is small, with just a few seats outside on the sidewalk, so not the place for a long business meeting unless you’re there on a perfect day. For a quick bite and brew, absolutely.
Meal Friendly: Yes
Meeting Friendly: Very Casual only
