Santa Monica Business #1: Sunny Blue
Santa Monica Business #2: Bagel Nosh
Santa Monica Business #3: Bay Cities
Why I can't live without these three businesses: Summer of freshman year was the first time I tried omusubi. I was a little hesitant at first because I wasn’t such an outgoing eater then. Since then, Sunny Blue has proved to be the best place to go on a summer day. Along with the food, what I like the most about Sunny Blue is that they remember you and greet you by name.
Plain bagels, cheese bagels, blueberry bagels whatever bagel you want Bagel Nosh has it. I love Bagel Nosh, not just because I am a bagel enthusiast, but because of the “Sunday morning” feeling I get every time I go. It has become a tradition in my family, since I was little, to pick up bagels on Sunday morning twice a month.
Last, but absolutely not least: Bay Cities. Bay Cities has the perfect array of meats and cheeses to construct the perfect sandwich at your convenience. But even more at your convenience are the pre-made Godmothers ready for you as you walk in. I could not picture the perfect hike or beach day without a Bay Cities sandwich in hand. The only thing I wish Bay Cities would do is to open on Mondays.
