Here’s what we’re sipping on right now!
No matter the weather, time of day, or mood, we can always go for a cup of iced coffee. But not all caffeinated beverages are equal. This is why we’ve curated this list of the 10 best vegan iced coffee drinks in Los Angeles!
Hollywood, Melrose, Sherman Oaks, & Tarzana
When you try The Sam from Enigma Coffee, you’ll understand why celebrities flock here for it! The vegan iced coffee drink features espresso, oat milk, and house-made salted vanilla syrup. Interestingly enough, it was invented by one of Enigma Coffee’s regular customers named Sam. Stop by and sip on the sweet, creamy beverage to see what the buzz is all about.
Pandan Horchata Latte
K&M Coffee knocks it out of the park with Filipino-inspired coffee and food! Although we love every drink on the menu, we have a special affinity for the Pandan Horchata Latte. It contains a double shot of espresso, vegan pandan horchata from HiFi Kitchen, and your choice of milk.
Iced Almond Macadamia Latte
Go Get Em Tiger
If you prefer your coffee light but not too sweet, then this Iced Almond Macadamia Latte is for you! In comparison to a traditional iced latte, this beverage contains a house-made almond macadamia milk that will rock your socks off. Best of all, it’s vegan by default so no modifications are required. Go Get Em Tiger!
Cookie Butter (Work) Latte
Wood Coffee Co.
There are many drinks to try at this Queer-owned vegan coffee shop, but the Cookie Butter (Work) Latte is our top choice. The house-made cookie butter sauce offers a sweet, flavorful touch without overpowering the coffee taste. Might we suggest grabbing a vegan pastry to pair with your latte?
Oat Horchata Cold Brew
Little Barn Coffee House
We love beginning our day at Little Barn Coffee House! For starters, the shop serves a creamy, cinnamony Oat Horchata Cold Brew packed with the perfect amount of caffeine. On top of that, Little Barn offers biscuit breakfast sandwiches. With a drink in one hand and a biscuit sando in the other, you’ll definitely be ready to take on your day.
24k Charcoal Latte
Coffee and Plants
As much as we enjoy classic caffeinated drinks, we sometimes desire something sweeter and fancier. That’s when we hit up Coffee and Plants for a 24k Charcoal Latte! Besides espresso and oat milk, this drink features activated charcoal, homemade vanilla syrup, and edible gold flakes. Just one sip and you’ll feel like a millionaire!
The Chaga mushroom is loaded with fiber and antioxidants. In the past few years, coffee shops have started offering a drink with Chaga mushroom powder mixed in for added health benefits. The Iced Chagaccino at Javista Coffee contains Chaga mushroom powder, cacao, monk fruit sweetener, espresso, and your choice of milk. We couldn’t recommend it more!
The Sweet Creature
The Palm Coffee Bar
The Sweet Creature is our favorite beverage at The Palm Coffee Bar. Not only is this drink delicious AF, but it’s named after a Harry Styles song! Starring espresso, oat milk, rose syrup, cardamom, edible rose petals, and glitter, this drink will make you sing from joy!
Iced Short and Sweet Latte
Just What I Kneaded
Just What I Kneaded makes a mean Iced Short and Sweet Latte! It boasts two shots of espresso together with organic agave, and your milk of choice. While you’re there, be sure to pick up a few vegan pastries for the road!
Iced Vanilla Latte
Alfred Coffee is popular for a reason. Because their drinks are legit! The Iced Vanilla Latte is a go-to order for us, and almost everyone in LA. With a double shot of espresso over your choice of milk and a drizzle of vanilla syrup, this delicious beverage will keep you coming back for more.
