Bikes & Coffee: Massimo's Mudspot in Los Angeles
Richard Risemberg (August 2008)

Gina came home all excited a few days ago to report the opening of a real coffeehouse in our Miracle Mile neighborhood--one that stays open late, bears art on the walls and books on a shelf or two, offers free WiFi, and that serves (of course) a good brew. To make it better, Massimo's is owned by the same fellow who owns the Little Bar next door, Angelo--who is a cyclist, as are most of the employees! I went by today myself, and found a "clean, well-lighted place," (to quote Hemingway), friendly folks, good mud, and a lot of bikes locked up outside--to which I added my "Bambina." Man, I wish them every success. They're going to get sick of seeing my face...let's have more of this sort of thing!
