Exploring Downtown L.A.
Just in mid-2013 Downtown Los Angeles was noted as a "neighborhood with an increasingly hip and well-heeled residential population"..
I guess Downtown Los Angeles just needs a few more month/years and it's gonna be THE place to be.
I just realized that I live pretty close to the Downtown area, and there are quite a few really nice spots...
I love exploring my new hometown!
Verve Coffee Roasters
WOW - (house made) their house made almond milk is mind blowing.. GO FOR IT!
the whole staff at Verve was super cute and friendly! I'll come back!
Grand Central Market
I recommend to come here early in the morning, when it's devoid of humanity.. (but I've always been an early bird, you know - and I just love to have a gentle start into my day)
My sister and I bought fresh blackberries (I got a huge package on discount for $0.50) and Californian strawberries for $1, nuts, dried plums.. good luck! :)
