This place is ALWAYS crowded, but easier to access at lunch time. They do not accept any reservations and all parties must be present before they are seated. While the rules are strict, the food is worth it! Order the "Trust Me" and trust me, it's delicious!

Never needed a reservation before and the food is ALWAYS delicious, fresh, and seasoned perfectly! If you like Vindaloo, Tikka Masala, and other Indian standards, you will be most pleased!

Best to go at breakfast time as they will not seat an incomplete party and are usually quite crowded at lunch and dinner time. The food is wonderful if upscale deli is your thing. The meat is ALWAYS amazing and the portions are perfect!

Located in Venice, this menu is enormous as is their portion size. You will not find another place in LA that offers the sushi burger or such a selection of breakfast french toasts/waffles as 26 Beach. Best for brunch, but make sure you make a reservation!

If you are craving someplace within walking distance that offers a combination of ribs, burgers, and salads, Wood Ranch is the place. Food is always good, but a little pricey. However, they are close by and you can pretty much always get into the place given how huge the restaurant is inside.

This place has the best, most flawless omelettes in LA! They are pretty much a breakfast/lunch place that also serve as a market selling fresh cheeses, coffee, etc. They have quite a loyal following.

Wonderful breakfast sandwiches, crepes, and lunches await you at Chocolate Cafe! Located in a small strip mall, there is an underground parking structure that accommodates the folks that come here. We have never needed a reservation before, but we also come on off-times.

If you want to chill at the beach, this is a great one to visit! Not as crowded as the Santa Monica one... you can find free parking on Temescal Canyon Rd. as long as you get there early enough and don't mind a little walking.

Outdoor walking area to see and be seen. You'll find lots of shops, restaurants, and street performers. Traffic can be horrendous down here, so best to go at off-peak times.

If you like fun rides and themed parks, but don't want to pay the prices at Disneyland, you can definitely hit up Knott's Berry Farm. Yes, it's the same Knott's Berry as in the jelly/jam you can buy (and you can actually make a purchase of that too).

The last of the big amusement parks is Legoland. It'll be the farthest away (close to San Diego), but for those that are LEGO enthusiasts, you won't be disappointed. True, it is more for children than adults, but they do have a miniature city made out of LEGOs that is really quite something to see.
