My Local! Go - you will see me here!

My favorite. I go here every single week. Twice! Acai Bowl is incredible. Coffee is awesome. Juices are the very best. If the lines are long it can take some time but well worth it. GO GO GO!!!!

This place had great, fresh food and you can tell that it's well liked among the locals! Every morning that we passed The Cow's End it had a huge line right onto the sidewalk. When we finally went in one morning, you understand why the wait is so long! Very friendly staff, great atmosphere, 2 minute walk to the beach.... More

Had the best salads of my entire life here. They are so big and full of amazing fresh produce. We came everyday for lunch whilst staying in Venice Beach. HIGHLY recommend. Great value for money.

Good service - great coffee and breakfast fare. Bit of a wait for the hot oats but it was fresh made from scratch - well worth the wait! Great place to start the day.

This is a great little coffee house, we ordered a breakfast bagel and Latte each, the food was excellent and the service great. There was a short wait for the food but this only reflects on how popular the place is - absolutely fantastic coffee.

The Cow's End serves up lovely morsels that will delight just about any carnivore, but it is its juice bar offers something for the veggie inclined.

While I admit that I frequent Starbucks more often than not, I love it when I find a great, independent coffee shop. The Cow's End is awesome. The coffee and food are really excellent, the prices are less than Starbucks and the ambience is much better. Loved hanging out with the locals who you can find outside this shop each... More

My brother and I stopped into the Cow's End to try some organic juices and were very impressed with the selection. The staff was also extremely helpful and friendly! We ordered shots of wheatgrass with apple and tried 2 different fruit and veggie juice smoothies. It was a very pleasant stop and everything tasted great!

The sandwiches are absolutely awesome - you select what you want to have on your sandwich from a huge list of ingredients and in no time you have it. Ingredients were always top quality. Staff is very friendly and efficient (queuing up behind 20 people? still no long wait!) When I lived in Venice and Marina del Ray I went... More

The sandwiches at this place are awesome! So many sandwiches, wraps and salads to choose from along with all day breakfast, juices and tea and coffee. All food under $9 before tax.

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.
