Coffee Shop Review: Barclay's Coffee and Tea Co.

Supporting your local non-national chain coffee shops is just one way you can help to stimulate the local economy. It's good for socializing and building morale within the community when the local shops do well. That being said, I would never suggest going to a local coffee shop I didn't like. Here in Los Angeles, there are millions of places to get your coffee. Not all of them are that great.

For example, I live right next to a Circle K. They have a wonderful selection of terrible coffee. It is usually old and often very acidic. I do not tell people to go there for coffee, because I regret it every time I do.

However, Barclay's Coffee and Tea Co. ( http://barclayscoffee.com/ ) located at 8976 Tampa Avenue
Northridge, California 91324 is one I can definitely get behind. Always friendly and serving up a delicious cup of coffee as well as some delicious treats, you'll be impressed with the edibles as well as the atmosphere.

They also are a wonderful source for new espresso and coffee machines. Check out their selection on their website and then stop in to see how their knowledgeable staff can inform you on what machine might be right for you.

But the coffee alone is worth the stop. Just ask Martha Stewart who is prominently featured on their website. Not sure how many other federal prisoners are featured on there, pretty sure she's the only one.
