Is it us or is there a coffee war brewing on Cahuenga and Selma? We've counted 3 coffee places opening up in the last 4 weeks. To wit, we now have Karma Coffee House, Coffee Groundwork and Caffe Etc...c'mon, Los Angeles Film School students can't consume that much caffeine. We know the Cahuenga/Selma area is a hot spot for hipsters now that Tokiohas landed up the street, but do they really need all that coffee?

We're all for a coffee bar that doesn't require a paid parking lot like Karma Coffee House but please...

and we notice that Morphine Generation is planning to move into the storefront on the southwest corner of Selma and Cahuenga. We welcome its hopefully soporific effect on the neighborhood.
