‘Discoveries’

The Novel Café

EatLA-194

WHY Good-enough Groundworks coffee, a hang-as-long-as-you-like vibe and a location in the hip Arts District. WHAT This ahead-of-the-curve Arts District coffeehouse is an offshoot of Venice’s expanding Novel Café. It’s scruffily pleasant, staffed by heavily tattooed young folks, and it has a big menu of wraps, pastries and salads—although we stick to the coffee and [...]

Urth Caffé

WHY Spanish lattes, tea lattes and all-around good drinks, most of which are organic and/or sustainably produced. Don’t mind the poseurs and enjoy the coffee and excellent oatmeal or pumpkin pie. WHAT Sure, it’s a Hollywood scene, and the parking is terrible, but you could do far worse in this ‘hood for coffee, tea and/or [...]

The Conservatory

EatLA-193

WHY Subtle, artful roasting in a low-key yet cool environment where the bean is king. Seriously good cocoa, too. WHAT The on-site roasting makes this a coffeehouse for aficionados. Fans sing the praises of the nuanced brews and drive happily from the Valley or beyond just to buy a pound. The location, across the street [...]

Groundwork

WHY For house-roasted organic coffee, properly robust, to take home by the pound or order in a cup. WHAT Don’t expect to hang out in this miniature storefront—it’s a place to buy good whole beans to take home or a tasty brewed cup or latte to take with you. 2908 Main St., Santa Monica, 310.392.9243, [...]

Zona Rosa Caffé

EatLA-190

WHY Heavenly Mexican hot chocolate to sip in the charming and romantic upstairs room. WHAT Tiny and vividly colorful, this coffeehouse has Mexican flair and a prime location next to the Pasadena Playhouse. In summer they host live music in the adjacent alley. WHO Shoppers, strollers, readers and theater-goers—in addition to the Playhouse next door, [...]

Sabor y Cultura

WHY A friendly vibe, fairly easy street parking, free WiFi and skilled baristas. WHAT A double-wide storefront in Little Armenia, this spacious, inviting coffeehouse doesn’t display the sort of Latin influences you might expect from its name. It’s just an all-around good place to hang out over a latte, hot breakfast sandwich or frozen yogurt. [...]

Seafood Paradise

WHY The most jaw-dropping array of live seafood swim in spotless tanks: striped bass, spot prawns, eel, catfish, conch, oysters, cultured abalone, even Taiwanese frogs. WHAT A large, clean space is lined with uniform-size tanks holding everything from the sea or rivers you could possibly want to eat—and if you can’t find it live, you’ll [...]

Pacific Fresh Fish

WHY Very fresh fish at wholesale prices. WHAT A no-nonsense wholesale fish market with slippery floors, no prices posted and no filleting—just whole fish on ice. But the quality is acclaimed. Get there early (between 6 and 9 a.m. on weekdays and 7 and 9 a.m. on Saturdays), know what you want, and bring cash. [...]

Bob’s Market

WHY Hand-cut steaks, house-made sausages and excellent prepared salads and sandwiches. The butcher will even custom make your favorite sausage if you bring in the recipe and buy at least five pounds of it. WHAT A throwback in the best sense of the word, Bob’s has personal service, a quality butcher counter, an excellent deli, [...]

Harvey’s Guss Meat Co.

WHY Lamb from Colorado and the Napa Valley; Kurobuta pork; and prime T-bones and porterhouse steaks from the Midwest, dry-aged on site for 30 days. WHAT Considered L.A.’s finest butcher, Harvey Gussman runs a wholesale operation that also sells to the public. It’s not a place to browse—call the day before to see if they [...]
