Adams Coffee Shop Fountain of Roots

Juice Los Angeles

Root vegetable juice packs surprising punch at Adams Coffee Shop.

Adams Coffee Shop doesn’t look like other local coffeehouses. The new neighborhood hangout from award-winning Bay Area based chef Daniel Patterson and Alta Group in evolving West Adams has colorful lounge seating, art and booked lined walls, a large communal wood table with black metal stools, and a record player with crates of vinyl LPs. I’d like to believe that a business can’t survive on looks alone, and Adams Coffee Shop doesn’t have to thanks to a coffee program featuring Coffee Manufactory beans, a full pastry case, and thoughtful juices.

Fountain of Roots ($7) is a vivid purple drink served over ice that’s crafted with earthy beets and carrots that baristas balance with tangy yogurt and a one-two punch of ginger and horseradish that delivers a lingering spice kick.
