9 Places to Get Vegan Matcha Lattes in Los Angeles
These are our favorite spots for vegan matcha lattes in Los Angeles! Matcha lattes are one of the most popular drinks out there. From Instagram influencers and avid yogi to moms on-the-run, matcha lattes are all the rage these days! Not only is this green beverage trendy, but it’s also great for your health! Matcha is rich in antioxidants, improves focus and memory, boosts immunity and energy––and it tastes great!
When it comes to our matcha lattes, we enjoy them best with the Organic Ceremonial Matcha Green Tea Powder from Tenzo Tea! Their high-quality powder is made with the youngest, most nutrient-dense leaves from green tea plants in Kagoshima, Japan. Here are 9 spots in LA that use Tenzo Tea in their matcha lattes!
Sage Plant Based Bistro
Echo Park, Culver City, Pasadena, and Agoura Hills
Do you like your matcha lattes hot or iced? Whatever your green tea preferences are, Sage has your back! Their matcha latte can be ordered over ice or steaming hot. And no order at Sage is complete without one of their staple menu items! Our favorites would have to be the Chia French Toast, Buffalo Cauliflower, and Farmer’s Lasagna.
If you ever find yourself anywhere near Downtown LA, stop what you’re doing and go to Nimbus Coffee! This coffeehouse is Black-owned, Harry Potter inspired, and they have matcha lattes––what could be any better than that? They’ve got matcha, coffee, vegan milkshakes, pastries, and more! Don’t forget to grab your cape, wand, and glasses!
Take a stroll along the beach with a matcha latte in hand! Dogtown Coffee’s matcha latte is made with premium matcha tea and almond milk. Be sure to order it without honey to make it vegan! Need something to nibble on? This spot has a handful of satisfying vegan noms! Their Vegan Munchies Burrito is packed with organic tempeh scramble, tater tots, avocado, pico de gallo, and vegan DTC chipotle sauce. Craving something on the sweet side? Order the Vegan Power Pancakes!

Make your way to Alana’s Coffee Roasters for a masterfully crafted Matcha Latte! You can choose between oat or almond milk to make it vegan and even add in extra matcha! Yes, please! If you’re a coffee drinker, we’d recommend picking up a bag or two of their locally-roasted coffee beans.

When you order the vegan variation of this refreshing beverage, it’s made with watermelon purée mix, forest green ceremonial matcha, and sour patch watermelons.

Tofu Tikkā Recipe
Tikkā is a northern Indian dish involving marinated protein or vegetables cooked in a tandoor, or clay oven. My version is made with marinated tofu baked on skewers in a conventional oven to mimic the traditional cooking vessel, which adds a char and smokiness to the dish. Using smoked paprika further pays tribute to the traditional cooking technique. This tikkā is best served hot with cooling mint chutneys and is delicious in lettuce wraps as well. For lettuce wraps, dice the tofu and vegetables into smaller pieces after cooking and fill the lettuce leaves just before serving.
