My friend, Erin owns this awesome cafe in Mar Vista (5 mins by car), with partner Eric who is a legendary coffee roaster who for years, served his delicious coffee at area farmer’s markets -- now we can enjoy it anytime just 5 mins by car away.

If you can get past the hipster scene and expensive food here, you’ll treat yourself to the best cured and smoked fish (herbed lox and white fish) and meats (prosciutto, panchetta, etc..) in Venice... along with their delicious bread (sourdough, sliced), pastries (tahini croissant!), coffees, pizza bread, salads (check in counter) and all their main dishes. An often unknown dinner option exists here, too, with a smaller menu but slightly better value!

California fast food burger institution...And it’s 5 minutes away by car (walk 15 mins)! Fresh cut fries (get extra crispy, animal style), special sauce, protein style double double with extra grilled onions... the drive- through line always looks long but they are exceptionally efficient and fast here!

Hands down my favorite seafood taco truck in LA! Get the ceviche tostadas (at least 2 of them!), shrimp tacos and chicharron tacos for the pork lovers! Hard to know when they are there but most days (not nights) they are parked in their parking spot with a line out front. Love this place before or after going to the beach! Take Rose down to ocean near 4th, and it’s less than 10 minutes away by car.

Closest cafe to our studio. Walkable in 5 minutes. Hipster, motorcycle loving, beachy vibe—coffee is good here too! Light food options, nothing to write home about. Nice back patio to sit in with an attached Deus clothing store. Recently at a construction site on Venice and Lincoln, there’s been a rowdy crew of a few homeless guys that you might have to walk by.

Although this a Midwest company, it’s definitely one of the best ice cream shops in Venice (others are Salt n Straw on Abbot Kinney and Wanderlust on Lincoln) and less than 10 minutes by car from our studio. Get the Salted peanut butter with chocolate flakes, brown butter almond brittle (I get by the pint!), darkest chocolate or the Brambleberry Crisp. Can't go wrong here!

This hole in the wall, walk up and pick up burger place is so good! Kind of like an upgraded In N Out complete with a Beyond Burger option, very reasonably priced for hipster Rose Avenue neighborhood. Fries, brisket breakfast burrito, egg sammie, kale salad, all excellent! Very efficient and fast for pickup too.

Everyone loves this place... I find it sometimes too salty for my taste. Much better for lunch than dinner in my opinion, but you can't have a list of quintessential Venice eateries without Gjelina and Chef Travis Lett on the list! Pizzas are amazing.

Love this quick and easy counter for take out sandwiches, salads and pizza. The problem is finding a parking spot here, but if you're shopping on AK anyway, this is an easy spot for a quick snack or meal.

We've had several vegans and vegetarians tell us that they chose our studio's proximity to this restaurant as the main reason for staying with us! I think it's got a fun and interesting menu, but maybe I just haven't chosen the right items yet. Definitely solid, but maybe not much to write home about? I prefer Plant, Food + Wine (Abbot Kinney), Gracias Madre (in W. Hollywood), Cafe Gratitude (Rose in Venice), Crossroads Kitchen (Melrose), True Food Kitchen (in SM Place) for vegan!

Nice place to celebrate (beautiful patio!) if you're vegan/veg or have a restrictive diet. Everything is tasty and healthy here, if not a little precious.

Yabu is my family's go-to for handmade soba noodle dishes, but this place is great for tempura, chirashi sushi and Japanese homestyle dishes like kimpira gobo, handmade tofu, miso eggplant, renkon, etc...

Don't let the strip mall location fool you! This chef was trained under iconic Nozawa Kazunori (Sugarfish, kazunori), and has had this Santa Monica sushi bar for over 20 years. The lunch special is a great deal. There are no rolls here--you have to just go with the Chef's Choice and you won't be disappointed! Or get a double lunch special!

Japanese supermarket with premade takeout sushi and a food court with very good ramen (Santouka) with tonkotsu broth. There's also a new takoyaki (octopus balls) place in the food court, as well as a great Japanese bakery with delicious iced coffee and pastries (Cream Cornets, curry pan, and hotdog rolls are my fave!). Check out the book store that has bunch of great Japanese stuffed animals, stationary and cute knickknacks for gifts.

Another mini mall's unassuming sushi place in West LA. Traditional. No carzy rolls and don't even ask for them because the sushi chef will get mad. Great new pickup/delivery menu since quarantine (he never had one before). Pricey but worth it. Disciple of Nozawa.

Perhaps the best tsukemen style ramen in California or the US! Rich, tonkostu dipping sauce for your ramen noodles. Sawtelle is a fun area to explore all the Japanese shops and restaurants. There's a Daiso, Nijiya market, Giant Robot, Boba places, dessert shops, too.

I've got so much love for this place--been going since I was a baby! Its crispy beef tacos, filling all meat burritos, luscious cheese enchiladas, best refried beans and mysteriously addictive red salsa and chips makes this our westside taco institution. People will say it's not traditional Mexican tacos, but who cares when it's this good! Always a line, impossible to order and deliver. Go at an off hour like at 10am when it opens. Check for hours!

This super healthy, all organic supermarket is straight down Venice Blvd. from our place towards the beach, right before you hit Abbot Kinney. They do have a counter where you can choose hot options and soups, but prepare to spend more than you think you will. This place is pricey, but if organic is your thing, you can't go wrong with the selection.
