I've had 2 experiences here. My first was not very good- i ordered the vegiatrian pizza, which was loaded with veggies, but it was very bland. I needed to add parmesean and chili flakes for it to have much flavor. Another time, a friend and I ordered the wild mushroom pizza for delivery and it was very good! I loved the combonation of flavors!
I was here for happy hour after work one day and was very satified with the ambiance- it seemed like a lot of people came there for drinks after work. I didn't try any of the food, or the bread that was placed in front of me. I just stuck with my drinks- which were cheap since it was happy hour. My only qualm is that our waitress took forever to come help us out. The check also took forever to come as well- maybe it was her first day, as it wasn't too crowded...
Do not be fololed bu the website that brags about the Hawaiian decor- this place is falling apart! Yet the prices are still high! Thank goodness I wasn't on a lease- I was staying with a friend for a month while I was inbetween apartments. It was very very noisy and I did not feel safe at all. The premises were littered with trash, and just felt very unclean. To top it off- I think my friend was paying $2,000ish for a one bedroom!
This is a very toned down version of a fancy Euro-style cafe. They do the whole design in the coffe thing- and they totally charge you for it too. I expected my latte to have nice thick foam, but no, totally weak. I'd come back, but only if I had to.
I love Manhattan Beach- throw in a good, fresh, and healthy eattery before hitting the sand and I'm a happy camper! I love the veggie sandwhich here (and I'm not even a vegitarian). Also, the iced tea to-go is a must- get extra ice and take it to the beach! Prices are fair and the vibe is very friendly!
I love the vanilla chai lattes here! I always ask for extra foam whenever I get a latte drink- and only about half the time do the baristas follow through with that- but they are really good about it a Java Depot- their baristas seem to be a lot more well trained than at, say, Starbucks. I try to come here whenever I am in town!
It's a pretty bad first impression when you walk in and the place wreaks. I was a little nervous to touch the clothes to go though them- I found absolutley nothing that appealed to me and the staff there was very rude and avoids eye contact.
Kim's Alterations really knows what they are doing. Last summer I was in a wedding and the smallest size the bride's maids dresses came in was still 2 whole sizes too big! So I brought the dress in and 3 days later, it fit just perfectly! There was boning in the dress, so I was scared that it wouldnt hang right- but they accounted for that, and I couldn't be happier with the results!
This is a great place to come in a browse and find things that you don't actually need. Great place for an eclectic gift. They have funny cards as well!
I came to Leucadia for the weekend a couple weeks back and brought my bike- but left my gloves at my apt in Los Angeles- I came to Leucadia Cyclery for the first time to get a decent pair. They had all the normal legit brands and I got a great pair of gloves! Only problem is that they are so expensive! $30 for the lower-end ones. But that's how bike or any specialty shop usually is.
