Last summer, we reported that Downtown LA’s first Tom N Toms Coffee — basically Korea’s version of Starbucks with now about a dozen locations in the LA metro — was coming to the Little Tokyo Shopping Center (home to the gigantic Korean supermarket Woori Market). Now open for less than a month, Tom N Toms Coffee adds another solid tenant to the aging indoor shopping center, which has been going through some much needed upgrades over the past couple of years. (A new X-Lanes entertainment bowling alley — think Lucky Strike — is coming soon as well to the third floor.)
What downtown residents will appreciate the most about this new Tom N Toms Coffee location (besides the fact that it’s another great option for coffee/pastries in Downtown LA) is the extended late night hours and free WiFi (with purchase of course). The cafe is open from 7AM to 2AM every day of the week! There are also plenty of seats and even several “private” booths enclosed in glass that are great if you want more seclusion within the cafe.
Oh and if you must drive to this location (at 3rd and Alameda), they do validate/stamp your parking ticket for 2 hours free as well.
