The line is often long at this tiny restaurant but the food is worth the wait. The menu offers unusual flavor combinations with interesting salad, sandwich, egg, and rice bowl dishes and very fresh tastes.

This place lives up to the hype!! Just be prepared for long lines on the weekend. If you’re an early bird, it is worth getting there right at the opening so you don’t have to wait for too long. And if it’s hot, wear a...More

The selection at Sqirl's feels very much like a weekend at a hip grandma's cottage. Jams and scones were delicious. We beat the Saturday rush by arriving before 9.

Trendy alternative cafe. Diverse menu with vegan and gluten free options. No table service. Really excellent espresso-based coffee drinks. Prices reasonable. Always seems to be busy so be prepared to queue.

The food served at Sqirl deserves all the hype it gets, and praise for doing so at quite reasonable prices. I was here for brunch almost a year ago, and was really amazed at how well they deliver on a rather creative rice dish as...More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
