after our morning run, step in and grab some latte and French toast. Best latte ever and the toast is really heavy but really good.

Consistently good coffee, efficient and always busy. Parking can be tricky and there is limited seating. Outside seating is available also.

The espresso drinks at Two Guns Espresso are top notch. This is a first class espresso bar with good food but limited seating. I don't go more often because I'm only in town one week a year, otherwise I would be a regular the rest of the year. Plus, they are very nice.

Although the prices are a little under the industry standard, I never spent so much in a coffee shop. But I was very glad about that. I had two cups, and I sampled the delicious food, too. I even bought a whole bean bag of espresso to go. I would be a proud regular if we resided in southern California.

I had the iced caramel latte. It was good. The pretzel sandwich was decent. My favorite is the BLT. Very cute place.

If you want a great breakfast sandwich and awesome coffee and you want to get away from the "traps" on Highland or Vista, this is the spot. Crowded and lively for a reason. I had the pretzel bun breakfast sandwich; pesto, fried egg, arugula, and ham. The wife had the salmon toast that they were kind enough to make an... More

For someone serious about coffee, this is the place to go in Manhattan Beach. Food was simple but delicious and quick. The line gets out the door at peak hours, but it moves along nicely and staff are very good at what they do.

Not a big spot and there's a line here for reason. Those that know will gladly wait. Plenty of staff to manage the crowd so the wait isn't long. Staff is fun and polite. Coffee is great and their food offerings are really good for breakfast and lunch. They do have about 4-5 tables inside with a couple more outside... More

Small space and very popular. 5-6 people waiting for spots to sit down. Aesthetically the interior and exterior a bit flat? for place that serves great coffee.

It's really difficult to find good coffee in LA, go no further than Two Guns! They have great food too!

Two Guns Espresso was founded by two Kiwis who wanted to bring New Zealand's coffee culture to the South Bay of Los Angeles. Located in the Goat Hill Center on Sepulveda Blvd, they transformed the western-style building into a light and modern space, with a shiny La Marzocco machine and a giant painting of Dirty Harry. Two Guns is proud to serve their own premium espresso, a two-bean blend developed with Dillanos Coffee Roasters. Expect dark chocolate sweetness with candied pecan and hints of dried fruit. Join them soon for their signature drink "the flat white" and in the words of Dirty Harry, let the friendly baristas "Make your day".
