Food Scene

This is my go-to brunch and dinner spot. The food is always great, the ambiance and scene is super cute, comfortable, and lively. And even though it's casual, the service is beyond!! Pro-Tip: Really great date night spot!!! White tablecloths on the tables for dinner, but don't feel the need to get too dressed up. And you MUST get the Rice Balls!!!

Cafe Los Feliz is the perfect casual breakfast/lunch spot. Order at the counter and find a spot outside or on their lovely patio. They have one of THE best Breakfast Burritos I've ever had. A great place for an easy coffee-type beverage. Definitely walkable from the apartment.

Sightseeing

The iconic Griffith Observatory!!! Free and Open to the Public. Not only will you experience sensational views, but you can tour the Observatory and learn a thing or two about the stars and outer space!! I suggest going at sunset, so you can see views during the day, and then the glitter of the night lights. On some nights, the Observatory has Astronomy enthusiasts out on the lawn with powerful telescopes that allow you to see planets and stars in ways you never imagined - check out their website for scheduling. You an also buy tickets to see an astounding show in the Planetarium. Be sure to pack a lunch or snack, as the Cafe onsite has odd hours and can be a bit pricey.

Parks & Nature

Being one of the largest parks in Los Angeles, the park can be accessed so many different ways. If you're looking for a hike, go to the top of Commonwealth Ave - just a few blocks away from my place. There's a very clearly marked trail here, and goes in a loop back down to Los Feliz Blvd.

While this is no longer an operational Reservoir, this is a great spot for a walk or run. Lot's of people exercising around here. Or head to "The Meadow" and layout or have a picnic. And no dogs allowed here, so you can take your shoes off and enjoy the grass underneath your toes.

This theater is FAMOUS for the pristine condition it's in and how they've kept the integrity of it's design and architecture alive after so many years. Only one theater, so you're subject to whatever they may be playing, but it is WORTH it. Very budget-friendly matinees, if you're in the mood.
