This South American-style cafe on Ocean Park is a perfect place to get work done. If that’s your goal, get here early to grab a prime seat by the window (and near one of their plentiful outlets). Bolivar has great coffee, a decent selection of pastries, and fast wifi, and while it gets busy, it never gets too loud to focus. When you’re in Santa Monica and want to avoid the crowds on Abbott Kinney, head to Bolivar.
