Flakes is an awesome place not too far from the beach. This place is actually kind of fun, it's a coffee slash cereal bar. Which I think is awesome. Cereal Bar: They give you a lot of options for cereals (sweet, nutritous, or colorful) and then you have your toppings to chose from (fruit, candy, and other), and finally your choice of milk (soy, almond, 2%, whole, etc. ) EAT CEREAL ANY TIME OF THE DAY!!! Coffee: They have their usuals, but one of the barista (big dude, awesome to talk to) does an awesome job, but he is only there in the mornings, he makes the coffee super tasty. It's a cozy little place, and they are kid & pet friendly, they even have treats for your dogs.

Surprisingly strong wine list! (Yeah, I'm the idiot that goes to sports bars still hoping for a decent glass of wine.) Cool local beer options as well as popular microbrews. Great decor too -- crafted from skate and surf boards. The purse hooks under the bar were skateboard wheels -- fun touch! Didn't try the food this time, but the menu and what I saw being served looked delicious.
Super cool hidden gem in Venice. The place inside looks like an old bakery or factory, with sections for baked goods, sandwiches, meats and coffee. The food is LA fusion and really delicious (I had a rice, kale and wild mushroom bow and my husband had a smoked trout sandwich)
Beautiful bakery restaurant. Great food but it gets packed at times. Bake goods are really good, it's a must try.
