Perfect cup of coffee and great cafe menu. Excellent fair. Must try the baby eggs (it's soft egg scramble over house made biscuit with spicy salsa) and definitely order the cinnamon toast or brioche with jam. Obviously the coffee is next level...

Great care goes in to their coffee and dining. Be patient, they aren't running a clock over at the service counter, but once you taste their market lunch or sweet desserts with a perfectly presented pour over, you'll be happy you waited. Lots of writers and creative types hang there all day, enjoying the vibe.

Just goooo! It's one of our favorites. Great simple and elegant sushi. No crazy american dragon roll. It's for the purist. Every time it's perfect. So Fresh. Best hand rolls in town (or check out their sister restaurant downtown for the hand roll bar)...this place will make you happy and it's not bad on the pocket book either.

Incredible mom and pop owned Cevicheria. Fresh. So fresh and possibly the best fish taco I have ever had. Try their agua fresca and obviously...the Ceviche! It's been written up by the best of the best. You must swing by this fabulous hole in the wall. Be sure to call first as sometimes they just like to take the day off. We like how they do things.

This woman...Karen Hatfield...She is a goddess. A master baker. If you pick up a bag of her homemade granola, it will be gone within the day. Everything she bakes is perfection. There's also a daily breakfast/lunch menu and the food is quite delicious. Great salads and sharable food but don't leave without ordering something from the bakery. Not open for dinner so be sure to swing by before they close.

Okay...I know...when you drive up, you'll think we've sent you to a diner from the fifties. But...go in and order some Roast Beef sandwiches! Better yet, order the Original Chicken and you'll see. In my opinion, it's the best fried chicken sandwich in town...Curly fries, fried in beef fat and then top off your meal with the best frozen custard everrr. We always order the Concrete Southern Belle...it's da best!

If bread could talk...theirs would say..."I love you"...that's how it is over there. First, you'll think you might be lost when heading over, but...hang in there, it's worth it. And...it's right next to another great downtown spot "Bestia" so maybe hit up both in one day. But take home a loaf from Bread Lounge and have some fabulous toast for the following morning. So good.

If you want to feel just a littttttle French for the night, head over to Franklin Village and be among the Beachwood hip. & artsy.

Plus there's lots of people watching and your right across the street from Mr. LRH town...Paris. Scientology. Hipsters all in one. Fabulous...or Fabulous? Either way...its a fun time.

So...you've heard of this place..and you've seen it for a minute in the move Greenberg. Too inside? Well, it doesn't really matter. The doughnuts are da bomb. Open twenty four hours...this place. Get there. Get some. Try the maple glaze or nutella walnut. Or keep it classic. Any which way you decide, you'll be a happy camper.

Special and written up ten ways to Sunday. Gooooo. And have a long fabulous italian dinner LA style. The chef is a star and the food is worth the fancy fancy vibe. Not an in and out experience. Prepare to relax and savor the food and it's a little heavy on your pocket but it'll be memorable.

This is a place to take your loved ones and hang and laugh and drink wine and eat. It's a real neighborhood star and we love it here...

Well...it's award winning and all that, but that's not why we go. We go because everything about this place is done well. Not just well...excellent! The decor. The food. The service. It's just fantastic. Try the chicken and avo sandwich. Try the cold drink of the day. Have anything there and it will be beautiful. I feel like I'm getting a present every time I take myself there.

You're really not an Angeleno if you've never sat in a booth at El Coyote on Beverly and had a shredded beef burrito. This is the place to drink many many many margaritas on the cheap and walk around till you fall on the grass giggling silly.

Very hippppp. Lots of mustaches. Lots of beards. But a good strong pour over and honestly, super pretty interiors. Why not. Bring your leather moleskin and grab a gingersnap cookie with your cafe. Sit and write and think and people watch. Or don't...it's Silverlake...be prepared to walk among a living instagram feed.

Three Words: Horseradish Mash Potatoes Just Gooooooo. You'll never be able to look at mash potatoes the same. And the burgers are real real good too. This place has been there forever. Since way back in the day. They revamped it a little but the grill is original. Oh, and it's right next to the newly renovated Normandie...Old Hollywood Revival Hotel. Take a stroll through the lobby after your burger n' shake.

Hands down, one of the best restaurants in Los Angeles. Head there for Sunday Brunch or an evening out. Incredible farm to table fresh and best pasta. Must try their Cacio e Pepe, Bucatini Carbonara & The Buca Burger...Basically everything there is so so good! Great place for a group to make a memory last.

Get that ol' Kosher Deli from the past vibe here. You can literally feel the endless coffee conversations in every booth. This is a mainstay deli of Los Angeles Fairfax district. Nothing beats the nostalgic energy at Canters. Waiters that have been there forever and platters that hit the spot, 24 hours open. Great place to hit after you've been out on the town. Get your black n' white cookie and some matzoh ball soup! On Tuesday's they've got the Kibbutz Room next door for some live music too!

Okay...so you might have to be a little open minded at first. This place is not easy on the pocket and they also have you name your dishes after affirmative positive statements, like the "I AM POWERFUL"...but, don't be too quick to judge, because you'll miss out on a seriously fantastic vegan eating experience. The juices are fabulous, the food is just perfect. You do feel "powerful" after you've had one of their macrobiotic bowls and tonics. Go there. Please go there. There's only one other in Kansas City...and this is our treasured joint. Personal favorite is: I AM WHOLE.

I've spent more than half my life going to this fabulous cafe. It's filled with memories and I'm sure you'll love it. Odds are you'll end up seeing some famous writer, sipping on a latte, next to some other famous director. This place has been going strong for over 20 years and the food and fair feel like home. Lots of paper reading, business meetings, industry folks...but no one is interested in posing. Everyone is here to do their crossword puzzle, eat, drink and be happy Los Angelinos. They close early..round 6pm.

Okay...This place looks like a tiny hole in the wall, basic spot...but NO! These owners are brilliant culinary artists. They are straight from italy and it's still a secret spot for the East Siders. The pasta is outrageous. Beats any of the fancy places around town. Try the Bolognese and the truffle pasta...Oh, and the gnocci made me cry the first time i tried it. Order up a variety and take it home to your bungalow. You'll be in for a very special meal. Don't forget to try a slice of home made Tiramisu or pastry torte. Easy on the pocket book too. This is real Italian. By real Italians. Get there early eve as they close at 7pm!

Get your Galbi on. So good. This is where we go when we're in a lil group and want to have a great night together. Try going a tad earlier to beat the mad rush at dinner time. Trust me it's worth the extra half hour. Sit around the fire grills and enjoy the endless stream of kimchi and side dishes while your meat roasts. Great place to celebrate or just have a fabulous night of food and drink.
