Rumor Mill, located in West Culver City is a nice place to get a cup of coffee and log on, even if you don't bring your own computer. The pastries are also quite good.

Rarely disappoints. I eat here at least a few times a month. If you're looking for a reasonably priced, casual neighborhood coffeehouse w/food and wireless, this is it. They use Boar's Head brand in their sandwiches, which kicks up the quality a notch. I like the turkey pesto on focaccia. They also have specials, salads, quiche, and breakfast items served all day. Zucchini bread toasted w/butter is yummy. Soup is just average, though. Espresso is consistent and reliably potent. Haven't used their wifi, but I always see several people tapping away and they look satisfied.

This is my standby coffee shop, not far from my home. They have been responsible for many morning pick-me-ups and curing weekend cabin-fever. The coffee is consistently good, and they have a pretty bulky menu with different sandwiches, salads, breakfasty-things on bagels (including tasty lox and creme-cheese, with capers!), as well as the standard fare of fresh pastries daily, fruit-in-a-cup, and other things I can scarf on my way to work. The staff is generally cheery and the service is almost always very fast (they're occasionally swamped, and I think their toasting-machine for things is a little on the slow side, but what can you do). They used to have no-strings-attached internet, and I was disappointed when they implemented a policy where you get a code that's good for an hour with purchase... but, it's hard for me to gripe about this as my mother is a business owner and I can understand how they felt taken advantage of by people coming in to purchase a 1.50 small coffee or whatever and then sitting all day long on the internet. Overall, it's a great place, I've been there many times for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - I highly reccomend their daily medium roast, a peruvian coffee. I've never been picky about roasts as long as the coffee is made well but the Peru is AMAZING! Both my roommate and I are totally hooked, it's the best coffee ever. Yay Peru!

Good coffee and smooth sweet bread mmm. Is one of the few places in Los Angeles that will display emerging artist work just to give them an opportunity to exhibit they work. That?s awesome motivation and important support for the creative soul.

Staff member claiming to be manager became hostile, verbally abusive and physically threatening to myself and another customer when closing time came and our laundry was not yet done. Was forced to leave with a car full of wet clothes.

Same staff member made a weak and tasteless cup of hot chocolate.

There are plenty of options in the neighborhood, DO NOT GO TO THIS PLACE.

I asked the staff to reset the wireless router and they ignored my request. The router was the issue as their direct connections on in house computers were up. Again, they said they would get on it. Again, nothing.
I offered to reset it for them and one staffer said she would fix it and I watched her go to the back to try and "fix" it. She turned the router off, causing the in house computer connections to tank. She didn't bother to turn it back on. All they had to do was admit that they did not know what to do and call the proper management, but no. All of the customers cleared out in the 1.5 hours that I was there. The staff would rather clear the place then fix a problem. I'm disgusted.

The Rumor Mill has great coffee, great food, and a great atmosphere. The prices are decent, not too expensive. They have wireless as well as 4 computers that you can use for free. There are always interesting people there to people watch or interact with. I always try to hit this place up when I am on the westside. They are connected to a laundry mat, so you can do your laundry and relax there.

I was disappointed to find out that they now limit your internet access to 1hr with a purchase. No more nice long afternoons getting work done there. Looking for somewhere else.

Pros: good vanilla latte and service

I used to frequent this place often to do my laundry, grab a snack, and get work done. However, they have recently raised their prices on laundry and now charge for internet access. They have lost my business.

Cons: laundry is expensive, no free internet

I moved in down the street and there are about 5 places I could do my laundry, but the rumor mill is the best. Having a place to read or surf while my laundry soaks is great. It really helps make the time go by fast. The coffee is really good, the place is clean, and the people are all nice and warm.

I like having a place to escape the sounds of a laundry. The Rumor Mill makes laundry day fun!

Pros: Comfy place to wait for laundry to finish.

Cons: Laundry is kinda small - can be a wait on busy days

I love this place! I used to do my laundry in scary places with dirty floors, and screaming children. I literally dreaded it, until I found the Rumor Mill! I'm able to do my laundry in their clean front loaders, while I sit comfortably in the adjacent cafe. The ambience is nice, though sometimes it can get a little crowded. However, the food is excellent. The Goat Cheese and Walnut salad is a favorite, although I usually go for the Roasted Pepper and goat cheese sandwich. It's Ammmmazing. Also, the place just makes you feel like being creative. It's perfect to sit and read, or work on something you're writing, or just search the net with their free wireless.

Pros: Food, ambience, creative atmosphere, semi-secret location, outside seating

Cons: Parking is kind of a pain, especially when you're lugging a laundry basket for a block and a half.

I've done laundry here and met friends to discuss a strategy for shopping for a mattress (with the help of the free internet). I don't like their drip coffee, but the espresso drinks are good. Good food too..

Pros: Food, espresso. Laundry. Internet. Good street parking.

Cons: Frightfully small alleyway to back parking.

.

Not too many seats inside. Every table has an outlet though which is really good. There are 4 computers anyone can use with free internet in addition to the free wireless. I thought the food and coffee was a bit pricey.

Pros: free internet, easy parking

Cons: a bit pricey for a coffee shop

When I found this place I was so happy b/c Culver City isn't notorious for great indy coffee shops. If you're suspicious of Starbucks, bored of The Coffee Bean, and tired of paying for internet at both of the afformentioned coffee spots then come to The Rumor Mill.

Pros: Nice comfy seats. FREE INTERNET. Great Coffee.

Cons: Art is a bad in that really bad way. Food is a little pricey but worth it. Bigger vegetarian menu would be great.

Found this place randomly for lunch in Culver City. I've been dreaming of that pesto turkey sandwich, saturated with just the right amount of olive oil, since. I've never tasted anything quite like it, and can't find anything like it in the valley. Their prices might be a little expensive for sandwiches, but they are worth the every penny.

The place has wireless internet and plenty of laundry machines should give me enough excuses to eat there.

Pros: Tasty tasty

this place is great. Where else can you have a business meeting (complete with wireless-g internet and plenty of power outlets for laptops with worn out batteries), have lunch, a cup of coffee and do your laundry, all at the same time? Well, you've found the place, right in the heart of Culver City. Good date spot, too. Enjoy!

An untragically hip vibe, good food, art up on the walls. A really nice neighborhood cafe!

Better than great sandwiches, soups, salads, coffee, and specialty drinks. Wonderfully creative sandwiches with funny little names for the specials like "The Alexander," a greek inspired selection, or for breakfast the "Egg-skewz me?," an egg, maple ham, swiss, tomato, and onion on a bagel treat. Fantastic breads, baked goods, and teas, all surrounded by internet access, monthly art exhibits, and a Tuesday night "open mike" musical soiree. And don't forget the ajacent kick-ass coin laundry. The 60's was never better.
