It’s a rabbit-warren of a place, filled with part-covered wooden stalls and restaurants and the clientele ranges from valley girl tween to Hollywood OAP.Dating back to the 1930s, it’s a traditional slice of LA life and the best place to sample a huge range of locally produced foods under one roof.This is twice we’ve fallen in love with California, and each time it’s been a little bit different.
Do what the locals do and take a picnic – the on site ‘Cafe at the End of the Universe’ isn’t cheap.
This LA stalwart located at 3rd and Fairfax remains one of the most friendly and cosmopolitan people-watching locations in the city.
Here are our southern California favourites: This is a small cove located north of Malibu just off Highway One.
To a couple of beach-starved Brits, Paradise Cove couldn’t be any more idyllic – retro Hawaiian style surf bar serving gigantic cocktails, beautiful private beach with extra large cabanas and pelicans diving for fish (we could have spent hours watching).
There’s lots of reasons to love Los Feliz, a former Italian enclave which took on a New York’s East Village vibe in the mid-1990s.
