Handsome Coffee is an Arts District roaster. They do serve some coffee drinks, but they really are a roaster.
Their menu is distinct. They summarized their espresso based drinks into espresso, or with 3, 4, 5 ounce milk rather than the more common Macchiato, Cappuccino, or Latte. I had a 1+1 and got my Macchiato and espresso. The roast is light and smooth.
My friends who do not drink coffee like I do needed some sugar, and they had none of any sort. For me my espresso did not need sugar, but for my friends coffee without sugar was not so great.
The cafe is well done and the Probat Coffee Roaster sits in a enclosed glassed off room. It is a pleasant place to sit. But the music was a bit loud for speak easy type conversations.
All in all it shows LA has some great coffee roasters and cafes
