Los Angeles

This massive sprawl of a city can keep you trying new restaurants, hikes, and shops for years - and where you go will usually depend on what neighborhood you're in and if it's rush hour.  But sometimes it's worth getting out of your bubble and checking out a new pocket - you never know what (or who!) you'll find!



This egg-centric gem with a fantastic name guaranteed to raise eyebrows began at Grand Central Market as a food stand serving fresh, flavorful combinations. There's enough locations now to avoid the massive lines downtown, so go get your fix no matter where you are!


Cafe Birdie

This Highland Park hotspot is worth the hop to the east side.  The neighborhood bistro vibes make you feel like a regular seating in your favorite, cozy booth, and the food is familiar but inventive enough to be interesting.  Plus it's right next door to Highland Park Bowl, LA's oldest bowling alley with specializing in craft cocktails and cool lanes.


Faith & Flower

If you're looking for the most beautiful ambiance mixed with an incredible brunch, this downtown spot was made for you.  Go with some girlfriends and share everything, especially the Black Mission Fig Tartine.  Snap your pictures fast, the food won't last long!


Secret Stairs Hike

Forget about Runyon, who wants to dodge pups and beautiful people every step of the way while they work out?  This Secret Stairs Hike will peacefully and beautifully give you that butt you want without everyone staring at it while you go!
