New Coffee Shop Brewing on Larchmont Boulevard

Baskin Robbins Space Under Construction

Eater LA is reporting that the space that was formerly home to Baskin Robbins on Larchmont Boulevard is going to be a coffee shop from the creators of G&B Coffee. The name of the shop is under wraps until it is trademarked.

G&B Coffee is a new coffee project backed by Kyle Glanville and Charles Babinski. Until early 2012, both Glanville and Babinski worked at Intelligentsia Coffee’s West Coast operation. Glanville was VP of Strategy and Babinski was Lead Barista Trainer. They left Intelligentsia to start G&B Coffee – a high-concept coffee bar that’s focused on superior roasters and very specific brewing techniques. Plus, they have a policy of using no disposables.

In October 2012, they temporarily set up shop at SQIRL’s location on Virgil, just north of Melrose, while they looked for their first location. They have partnered with Abel Eljam, owner of the Baskin Robbins, and are currently renovating the Larchmont Boulevard space.

Can Larchmont Boulevard handle another coffee shop?

Coffee Bean, the gelato place, the candy and gelato place, yikes. Even though I’m a coffe drinker and I go to Peets all the time, I find the news of yet another coffee n’ carbs place to be a bit depressing. Is there no other idea that would work for Larchmont Boulevard? No Cookbook, no noodle or soup place, nothing other than caffeine and sugar?
