If you’re in LA, you need to check out Rose Ave. There are a few blocks that have some of my absolute favorite restaurants and bars in LA (aka Superba, Oscar’s Cervateca, Venice Beach Wine Bar and Flake). Unlike the other three listed, Flake is a very down- to- earth, casual breakfast place. It has that quintessential cool, Venice Beach feel. Here are a few snapshots from my experience there…
At Flake, you are greeted with a friendly hello and a retro counter to order at. Their prices are VERY reasonable and their food is classic and delicious- perfect for anyone on a budget.
I ordered a nonfat latte and an Acai Bowl. This was by far one of the best Acai Bowls I’ve ever had- the granola was crunchy and the acai wasn’t too soft and didn’t melt and turn into a soup. Plus, the huge serving of fruit on top was amazing.
My boyfriend ordered a breakfast bagel– and I snagged a bite. It was delicious. Anything with avocado is automatically ok in my book.
You have to try Flake on a lazy Sunday morning- then maybe head over to Abbot Kinney for a little window shopping after 🙂
