Los Angeles Adventure Part TWO
The first part of our trip was super rainy, so we were happy when the sun came out.
Tuesday we got up and headed to the coast for breakfast. I had been wanting to go to Eggslut for quite some time, because I like hearing about/visiting restaurants that have insane success with something as simple as an egg sandwich.
This morning didn’t go smoothly. LA traffic was LA traffic so it took us over an hour to get to the coast. Then when we got to the restaurant they didn’t have a bathroom inside and I had to pee like no other. So we ate our sandwiches rather rushed and then went in search of somewhere with a bathroom.
I wasn’t very impressed with the sandwich. Andrew LOVED it. The sandwich had a chipotle ketchup on it that I wasn’t a fan of with the eggs. Also for a breakfast sandwich to win ‘best breakfast sandwich’ in my book, it has to be on a biscuit or a croissant. I have very little interest in brioche bread. That’s just me.
No denying it was a pretty sandwich though!
So this was eaten in record speed (the opposite of mindful eating…lol it happens), and then we walked quickly in search of a bathroom.
We walked to Blue Bottle and hoped they’d have a bathroom. AND they did! Plus they have the world’s best coffee.
Their coffee (and Cuvee) is pretty much the only lattes I like without sweetener. They are so smooth and perfect.
I was still hungry after the egg sandwich, so we walked about Main street in Venice Beach and stumbled into Blue Star (a lot of blue that morning haha). Lattes + Donuts = so great.
I got the Dulce de Leche with hazelnut and Andrew got the lemon poppyseed.
The weather was fab. We walked around while we ate our donuts. Walked over to the Venice Canals, which were rather dirty…I guess from all the rain they just had. I liked this flamingo boat.
Then we headed up to Malibu for the rest of the morning.
Our first stop was Zuma Canyon Trail. Gosh I love California. This trail was gorgeous. We’re heading to Laguna in March and I can’t wait to check out the trails they have there…we never have before.
For lunch we headed over to Malibu Farm Restaurant. I highly recommend this place!
For lunch I had crab cakes + an acai smoothie.
After lunch we sat on the pier and enjoyed the view. They also had a super cute shop at the end of the pier. The prettiest chocolates…
Then we headed back to the Airbnb to relax. I took another bath (lol I think I ended up taking 7 baths in 3 1/2 days). I loved that bathtub!
For dinner we went our for pizza.
The next day we checked-out of our Airbnb and headed back to Griffith Park before our flight later that day.
We had breakfast at the little cafe at Griffith Park…
Quiche + a scone to split + latte.
We did the West Observatory Trail again. I would’ve loved to explore more trails in Griffith Park…next time!
We hiked back down and then headed to the airport. I loved LA. I hope we’ll be back!
