When I want a pair of Toms—I head right over on Abbott Kinney to get exactly what I want. Not only do I go for the shoes but I go for the experience as well. I love the organic selections of coffees and calm but yet busy atmosphere with exceptional service while trying on shoes and shades.
I recently read in Food And Wine that Blake Mycoskie, founder of Toms shoes, is a travel fanatic (like me) and has to have his 6 am a morning cup of espresso (like me) at his main store on Abbott.
I was surprised that they all serve direct-trade coffee from countries where they donate Tom shoes, like Rwanda. I encourage you to go have a cup of organic coffee and shoes on Abbott Kinney!
