“Lived here for years and never knew this was here! The food is amazing and the atmosphere even better. There is an indoor and outdoor section and you could definitely come for the whole day with friends just to hang/eat/drink. You have to try the berry pancakes because they were truly out of this world. And we honestly drooled over everything else on the breakfast menu. Love it. Make a reservation!”
Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen View Park
“Hidden coffee shop, black owned, with the coolest atmosphere and such great coffee. I recommend the chai tea latte with espresso but they’ve also got a lavender latte which sounded fantastic. The decor is super fun and inspirational and the food list was an A+”
Body Butter Lady
“Amazing Black owned skin care store! They make most everything in house and have products from body butters to bath bombs to essential oils. The smells are amazing and the products we purchased we absolutely love (especially the body butter and lip scrub)🤩”
Super Domestic Coffee
“Cute little coffee shop where they sell biking gear in addition to amazing coffee and food. The avocado toast was insane (as you can see) and their coffee was just as delicious. They even name their cacti decorations with different puns such as Spike Lee and Squidward’s Nose. 100% coming back to try all the food.”
“AMAZING black owned Mexican restaurant in Venice! Such a fun ambiance and a lot of great stuff to buy as well. The barbacoa burrito and chicken tacos were 100% some of their best items on the menu and their drink list is 🔥. Outdoor seating for the time being but even their patio is adorable!”
