Every once in a while, I mention a new restaurant we have tried or a fun place we have been to in LA, but I haven’t done a comprehensive guide to my own city yet! I love doing guides for new cities that I travel to, so it only makes sense that I share my favorites in Los Angeles – and boy do I have a lot! I’ll have to do a new one of these every so often since everything changes so much here, but for now, here is a current little treasure trove of the best places to grab coffee, eat, shop, play and spot celebs!
