Opens early for breakfast but has good "brunchy" food even at early breakfast hours, it isn't "diner" breakfast. It's great. Fabulous coffee bar as well.

Their pizza is my favorite. Pick it up or have it delivered by Caviar. They also have a wine shop, gelatto scooping, a dessert bar, and coffee bar. Very grab and go, or perfect to dine in as well.

Great little independent coffee shop and juicery. Very "all the feels" vibey and insta photo worthy if you're looking for that. The avocado toast is amazing. They make their own almond milk and the iced almond milk latte is THE BEST!

If you're craving ramen. It is amazing... be advised it is standing room only, and no "to go" food. So... you order and then you stand in one of their little eating stalls.

This is legit. Taco stand at the end of the street, prepare to wait in line, and DEFINITELY get the corn. VERY authentic. I don't like "street tacos" with nothing more than cilantro and onions so I don't love their tacos, but everyone else in the world does.

OMG this store is home goals. I can't afford the pottery and stuff in there, but I go just to look, admire, get inspired, and then I'll usually buy a book or swanky magazine.

Essentials

This is small local market store... they are like a smaller whole foods and focus on healthier vibes. This won't replace a big grocery store run if you need like ALL the staples, etc. Definitely worth a visit though. It can be convenient if you need a few things and were already heading to houndstooth, taco deli, or cibo divino, since it is in the same little nook.

This is where they found Lee Harvey Oswald. Check it out. Even if you aren't seeing a show there, grab a drink at the bar there and give yourself a tour. Its "weird" good and still has old art and furnishings in it.
