They claim to have been rated the best coffee house in 2009. The quality of the coffee was nowhere near good enough to compensate for the indifferent - borderline surly - staff.

Little, local, unassuming, very friendly cafe just off Third Street Promenade with fabulous coffee, espresso and boba. Appears to be nothing special at first, but the drinks are fabulous and the service is awesome. Appears to be a locals' secret. While visiting for a week, went there every day. Within a day or two the baristas knew our drinks and were treating us like regulars. They don't have a huge selection of food or pastries, just the basics, so we went strictly for the coffee drinks. Tried pastries and coffee around the corner at Rockenwagner one day and was extremely disappointed, dry pastry and terrible coffee (actually tossed it - a first for me - and went back over to Infuzion). Loved our find. If you are shopping Third Street and are tempted by Starbucks or a "fancy" cafe, think again and walk a block off the Promenade to give Infuzion a try, you won't be disappointed.

The coffee shop of your dreams! Imagine a bright, friendly, and eager to please staff. Anything your heart desires! They make your drink the way you like it, down to how many sugars and cream. They offer such a variety of drinks that anyone can come in here and walk out with an amazing drink. I recommend the Spanish Latte, a latte sweetened with condensed milk. Perfectly sweet with my favorite espresso (all their coffee/espresso is Ground Works!!!) Free wifi and the surrounding area make it a must go! Third Street Promenade is only a block away, and it is in the heart of Santa Monica. If you have a chance to try out this amazing gem in Santa Monica, I highly recommend Infuzion Cafe!

This place was gonna be my new spot. Then I went and the chairs were really hard. Even with free wifi, my butt is still gonna fall asleep.
