Where to park when coming for coffee? Great question! The side streets around the Hudson Theatre offer plenty of 2-HR free parking until 6PM. After six o'clock some of the streets are permit-only. Seward St is often a good option. Be sure to read the signs. Street sweeping is Mon & Tue 10-AM-1PM. There's metered parking along Santa Monica Blvd 1-HR until 7PM every day. The best parking options are often on the streets south of Santa Monica Blvd. There are 10-minute food pick up zones right in front of the coffee shop if you're grabbing something to go. The nearest bus stop is the 4 at SMB / Wilcox. Hope to see you soon.

Nestled in the lobby of the Hudson Theatres is the Hudson Theatre Coffee Shop. A beloved Hollywood fixture open to the public during the day, serving as the theatre lobby at night. Featuring a full line of espresso, lattes, mochas, pastries, breakfast, lunch and dinner options, and ice cream. Staff is super friendly. Original artwork and custom-designed furniture gives the room a warm, Zen, vibe. They play jazz, but sometimes pop, have wifi, and offer several plant-based milk options. If you're exploring Hollywood and looking for something that's not the same as everything else, the Hudson Theatre Coffee Shop is a great old room to visit.

Do you have questions? How about unmet needs? Is there something you desperately want, but don’t know where to turn? If so, you should ask the White Buffalo.

Opening Night Party Hudson Theatre Coffee Shop Lobby

The Hudson Theatre Coffee Shop on Santa Monica Blvd is where visitors can still experience the charm of 1930s Hollywood, California. Many plays and musicals got their start at this theatre.  In a city where seemingly everything changes, the Hudson Theatre lobby maintains the vibe of a bygone era. The staff is friendly and the room is most inviting. The bustle of the city fades as you walk through the door. They offer specialty coffees, lattes, premium ice cream, some light bites, and pastries. The Hudson Theatre Coffee Shop will be a highlight of your visit to Hollywood.
