vacation daydreams…

it feels like my early vacation to a little border town from puerto vallarta was so long ago. non-touristy, boca de tomatlan was the perfect place to lay low, relax & enjoy late nights laughing with friends. the days were filled with epic views of the coastal terrains & no shortage of homemade prepared meals. it’s safe to say it was paradise, even if for a few sweet days…

the sycamore kitchenbreakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day, so i’m always on the look out for new spots. i had only heard great things about the sycamore kitchen & had passed by the space weeks earlier while visiting the new steven alan space on la brea, which by the way has the best looks for spring! with a few friends, we planned a morning date (sweet stephanie & carmen!) & entered the airy space with a welcoming hello from the staff. the menu was a fresh mix of unique flavors & truthfully we couldn’t decide! after much debate, we all chose the pork belly hash & the hearty bowl was the perfect balance of savory. owners, karen and quinn hatfield score yet again with this perfect neighborhood addition…

coffee + food…

i love getting tips on new places to try & luckily this one was just down the way from work. cyndi finkle and mel cain’s collaboration, coffee + food is a beautiful space with killer sandwiches & smooth aussie brewed coffee. the cafe is airy & the perfect place to catch a quick bite & watch the staff charm guests. both cafe items i tried were fresh & filled with complex flavors, that had me wanting more! i’m so glad this little gem is here to stay…
