Shopping with A Side of Coffee

A Fashion District Coffee Shop Guide

Have you noticed all the new pastry and coffee shops in the district? From the recently opened Paris Baguette to long-time neighborhood staples like No Ghost Bears and Verve Coffee.

The Fashion District is quite the destination for a good cup of coffee. Here’s why:
