      My favorite cafe on the west side. Amazing espresso drinks served in big cups, mind blowing pastries and sweets, great sandwiches. The egg sandwich for breakfast, on fresh baked bread with avocado and ... read more
      cheese is my favorite - I get it every time I go to L.A. The bread pudding is also mind-blowingly good. The seating is all open air, so if you are there on a chilly morning, bring a jacket so you are not cold.

      Go to Ocean Park Beach (guard tower 28-24), as the waves are great, the crowd is light (compared to other areas) and people watching is A+. I grew up at this beach and can't recommend it enough.

      Take a drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to beautiful Malibu. Check out El Matador beach, if you can find it ;)

      The best sandwiches in LA, hands down, maybe in the world. Local bias here, but still, don't miss it.

      Do not miss a Bay Cities sandwich, even if the line is long. Little known fact: order online, or grab a premade sub for faster service. The "premake" the subs every 15 min so they are always fresh.

    • Hotel Shangri-La Santa Monica1301 Ocean Avenue, Santa Monica, CA 90401
      Nicholas D recommended Hotel Shangri-La Santa Monica

      Hotel Shangri-La is a quirky spot at home where it is. The black and pink theme of the lobby confused me, but the rest of the hotel served up clean art-deco design that fit well with the beachy ... read more
      attitude of the area. My room was very nice and had a 180 degree ocean view (The higher the floor, the better your view will be, so be sure to ask) And I must mention the bathtub, which was massive. I often felt like going out anywhere else and night was a crime because the parties at the hotel were so good! It is a popular hangout for European celebrities and artists, and the crowd that rolls with such people is sure a lot of fun. So yes, this hotel certainly counts as one kind of Shangri-La.

      If you want a fully Southern Californian experience, why not stay on the beach (and we mean *on* the beach) in Santa Monica? My cousin got married here, and the place couldn't have been more ... read more
      beautiful, the staff could not have been friendlier, the rooms could not have been more perfectly casual but upscale. They've got three different places to eat, all with crazy-beautiful views.

      It's not cheap, but this is one of the most amazing hotels in all of LA. The location right on the beach is perfect, and you're super-close to a million great restauratns and things to do.
