One of the top coffee in Los Angeles; Caffe Luxxe was by far the best coffeehouse we visited whilst in Santa Monica.  Their glittering Italian coffee machine creates wonderful cups of cafe bliss under the hands of their knowledgeable baristas.  Los Angeles, as compared to NY or SF, seems a bit behind the café curve.  A theory could be done to the lack of pedestrian neighborhoods where these types of specialty shops thrive, rather than the palate of the citizenry.  One of the few neighborhood type places is Santa Monica- and that is where we found Caffe Luxxe.  (There is a second location in Brentwood which we did not visit).

Caffe Shakerato

Tall ceilings top white walls which are covered with beautiful, framed coffee photography by Tom Benedek.  A few tables with silver chairs seat about 20.  The main L shaped counter is home to a display of pastries, chocolate bars, and croissants.

The cappuccino was quite smooth, while the Caffe Shakerato (hand-shaken espresso with milk and ice) was extremely yummy on a hot day!  The Caffe Nico (espresso, candied orange and steamed half&half) was strong and made a great pairing with the light macaroon.  I sampled an excellent drip coffee as well to complete the test trifecta.
