Business #1: Bolivar Cafe
Business #2: Santa Monica Yoga
Business #3: Thyme Cafe
Why I can't live without these three businesses: Bolivar Cafe- Bolivar- another Ocean Park Cafe, is another of my favorites. It serves venezuelan influenced food- salads, arepas, and sandwhiches, and it also has amazing fruity smoothies. The Arepas are a common favorite, but the sandwiches are also magnificent. I love going to Bolivar when I want to read and have a snack, for it is quiet and bright inside, and their cafe latte's are absolutely amazing!
Santa Monica Yoga- This is my favorite place to go on a Sunday night with my mom. I love going to Santa Monica Yoga to relax before entering another long week. The classes run daily at different hours and It's easy for me to get to because It is also located on Ocean Park. The classes range from basic stretching and meditation to advanced yoga poses.
Thyme Cafe- My mom probably goes to Thyme Cafe around three to four times a week. It's relatively new, and has been on the Ocean Park street for around two years. It's also another place that is always packed with people. They have yummy pastries, deserts, sandwiches, soups, frozen food, and random little items. It's quite pricy, but the food is definitely worth it.
