Business #1: The Omelette Parlor
Business #2: The Slice
Business #3: Trader Joes
Why I can't live without these three businesses: The Omelette Parlor My favorite breakfast and lunch spot. From its charming indoor and outdoor atmosphere to its wonderful waiters, The Omelette Parlor has never seized to impress me. Everything on their menu is great, but the best is when you get to choose exactly what you want in your omelette and then top it off with a hot cup of coffee. Don’t get fooled by the name of the restaurant though. It may just sound like a breakfast joint, but The Omelette Parlor makes the most delicious burgers and salads. If you happen to be passing Main Street on a weekday between 1-2:30PM, make sure to take advantage of their burger special. You can get yourself a huge, tasty burger and side salad for only six bucks! The Omelette Parlor has extremely friendly and efficient waiters, and gives you the feeling of going on a small getaway with its sweet vintage décor and its shaded outdoor seating. So next time you're in need of a great breakfast or lunch, do yourself a favor, and stop by The Omelette Parlor!
The Slice If you happen to be a regular at The Slice on 9th and Wilshire, you've probably seen a group of high school kids sitting out on the patio at least once a week. For the past few years, The Slice has been like a second home to my group of friends. It is almost second nature to gather after school, order pizza, fries, or even just celery sticks with hot wing sauce, and just hangout for a few hours discussing our ridiculous lives. The guys who work there are wonderful people and work really hard to serve great food and do a great job keeping the place clean and orderly. Their pizza is amazing, their fries are amazing, their hot wings are amazing, their calzones are amazing, basically, The Slice is amazing. As you can see, I don’t have much more to say other than the fact that it’s amazing. If you’re looking for some quality pizza and super cool guys to make it for you, The Slice is where it’s at.
Trader Joes Trader Joes has quite a special little spot in my heart. A trip to Trader Joes on 33rd and Pico is a regular trip made by my family. I have been raised on their food, and don’t ever plan on breaking that consistency. Trader Joes has the greatest vibes and the greatest food. From its exotic pre-packed salads to its to-die-for deserts, this store will have you making up silly excuses to go back. Their prices are unbeatable and their freshness and quality never even has to be questioned. Trader Joes is a chain store and has many locations around the country, but due to their small-sized stores and their family-like employees, it still feels like you’re paying a trip to a family owned market.
