The word has gotten out: Kiff Kafe is THE spot on LA’s West side to secure the city’s best java. Cappuccinos, cortados, macchiatos, and even matcha lattes and lemonades as well as smoothies from our cozy French café’s menu have been lauded by our beloved Los Angeles neighbors, from restaurant reviewers and foodies alike!
With such fanfare, we have all been eagerly awaiting the introduction of our wine list, and we can’t wait to share these amazing varietals with our wonderful customers. The wines we’ve selected accompany our authentic and refreshing twists on favorite French dishes so nicely, we’re sure that you will want to try them all.
Our Kiff Kafe team has developed a thoughtfully curated list of wines for you!
We have fortunately secured a pleasing roster of tantalizingly unique wines to fill out this debut wine list. Each wine was selected with Sommelier-like precision, to compliment Kiff Kafe’s lunch and dinner offerings, or to stand alone quite nicely, for customers seeking to stop in for just a glass, or an aperitif.
Our team developed a thoughtfully curated list that offers a pleasing variety of rose and several varieties of whites and reds, to satisfy just about any customer’s tastes! (a feat sorely neglected in even some of the top dining meccas lately). The wines on offer are of course very French, in all the best ways. Here we visit just a handful of the many new additions, which can be seen on our Kiff Kafe online menu.
