Healthy food, cool setting. Very busy.

Really liked the food at this place - very healthy californian stylie - not so great for our two children, who left most of theirs as it had "funny stuff" in it, but I loved my hummous and kale wrap and my husband;s massive salad was pretty delicious too. We went early as we had correctly... read more

This place has a nice upstairs studying/working area where there are different rooms full of outlets and free WiFi. It is located very near to Venice Pier. I recommend to order Smoked Salmon Panini, it was so delicious!

We were visiting in the area and walked to the beach each morning. We saw the SBux first, but then saw the line out the door of the Cow's End. Nice to support local company and the variety and quality of coffee was very good. We visited all three mornings we were there. Started to feel part of the community.... More

We enjoy stopping into this coffee shop after walking along the beach from Santa Monica to Venice. Their coffee and pastries are far superior to the Starbucks which is nearby. We recommend their espresso for a truly aromatic cup of java. Their muffins are delicious too.

This is a great lunch spot if you have time. The menu is healthy and fun. Nice smoothies, but the staff has two speeds. Slow and I don't give a crap. I personally walk by about 4 times per week and would eat there everytime. But once or twice a month is all I can stand because of the wait... More

Just a few feet away from the Venice Beach pier. Delicious and fresh sandwiches, any way you like them. Very healthy, too.

We were quite hungry but not fancying coffees, so, we had the specials of the day; soup and bread, plus and sandwich, soup, and salad combo. Both were reasonably priced and made with care, and were tasty. There were not many seats inside so we sat at a table outside; it would have been perfect but there were quite a... More

Staying in Venice

Neighborhood Profile
Venice
Venice has always danced to its own beat as the epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along the boardwalk there are street performers and local craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings, souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders do their tricks around the skate park. All of it happens under the warm California sun with sprawling views of sand and sea. Heading east, the main drags of Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Main Street are lined with boutique shops, some major retail stores, art galleries and restaurants. Here the ambiance is more relaxed and upscale than the frenetic boardwalk area. Venice is a mostly walkable (and certainly bikeable) neighborhood, full of areas to explore.
