We were there for breakfast twice and I could have eaten there every morning if we had not wanted to try other breakfast places. It was walking distance from our hotel on Admiralty Way and depending upon when you arrived, it could be crowded. There...More

The Cow's End is probably one of L.A.'s most easy-going coffee joints. It's a place where everyone feels equally welcome – regardless of if you're a local or like me, someone that visits a couple of times a year. I often order their excellent smoked...More

Walked here from MDR Marriott. Solid eats and amazing coffee. Pour over pure Kona coffee is worth it. One of the best cups I've had. Breakfast tacos were tasty and filling. Note this place is cash only, fortunately I had enough on me. Also you...More

Great place for coffee, smoothies, juices and breakfast. Lots of choices. Healthy, as well as not. "Bagel & Eggs" was really nice.

I went to The Cow's End Cafe to catch some breakfast. Their card is enormous with many delicious opportunities (egg, sandwiches, omelets, acai bowls) making it difficult to pick! I ended up with the protein acai bowl + matcha shake which both were very good!...More

I love Cow's End. I always walk past Starbucks to stand in line here. The local vibe is on display, the baristas are friendly and talkative and the drinks are solid. The one draw back is that it's cash only (there's an ATM on site),...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
