Kosher Klassic: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf on Hawthorne and Del Amo (Torrance)


I actually came back to this Coffee Bean two days in a row because of its location (in the middle of Torrance…I needed to be near Gardena so that I could go suit shopping with my friend but I didn’t want to actually BE in Gardena). There is a large table in the middle that seemingly is next to the only outlets in the entire store, but there are a lot of outlets so it was okay. This Coffee Bean was never very busy which led to an overall pleasing experience, plus the wi-fi was decent.

There was only one strange part about my experience and it was that when I tried to bring some IN-N-OUT in. They asked me to eat it outside because they were trying to keep the store Kosher. I really just don’t remember the last time I’ve ever been told that by store management.


  1. (of food, or premises in which food is sold, cooked, or eaten) Satisfying the requirements of Jewish law.
  2. (of a person) Observing Jewish food laws.
