Seemed they were changing menu that day, and the staff were trying their best to cope with the changes. Egg omelette seemed it was a but bland, was it really made on the spot, or just heated on microwave? Came with a side salad. Coffee...More

I love Cow's End. I always walk past Starbucks to stand in line here. The local vibe is on display, the baristas are friendly and talkative and the drinks are solid. The one draw back is that it's cash only (there's an ATM on site),...More

Stopped in for a smoothie bowl here which was very good and a little pricey. When you go here you wait in line to place your order then can only pay cash. Overall hit the spot.

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
