The Gables // This Santa Monica hot spot is a new favorite of our foxes, the blue, beachy California energy coupled with incredible food is hard to beat.

Taste on Melrose // An elegant twist on American comfort food. One of our favorites for brunch or dinner, all around, great food.

Petite Taqueria // This trendy taqueria is one of our favorites here at HQ, with killer drinks, and crispy tacos, there’s not one dish on the menu that’s going to disappoint.

Dessert //

Milk Bar // Soft serve ice cream, layered cakes, and crack pie. See what all the hype is about at this newly opened Los Angeles location. Plus, if the inner baker in you is waiting to shine, they offer classes where you can learn how to make some of their deliciously baked treats (how fun)!

Salt & Straw // If you’re looking to indulge in unique ice cream flavors like roasted strawberry & white chocolate or salted, malted, chocolate chip cookie dough, this is definitely your go to.

Churros Calientes // If you’re looking for some of our favorite churros in LA, look no further. This cozy and cute churro shop has tasty (and crunchy) homemade churros topped with cinnamon sugar and served with a side of hot chocolate dipping sauce. Who can say no to this?
