Business #1: Panchos Tacos
Business #2: Omelette Parlor
Business #3: Starbucks Coffee
Why I can't live without these three businesses: Panchos Tacos: This little Mexican joint on the south side of Santa Monica has become one of my most cherished places. Their food is extremely affordable, generously portioned, and is made in minutes. I've been traditionally going to Pancho's every Thursday for the past year and I still can not get enough. Personally, my favorite thing on the menu are the soft chicken tacos. They're delicious. Just one fills me up!
Omelette Parlor: If you like eggs, this is the place to go. The Omelette Parlor on Main Street has a small town, cottagey feel that I absolutely love. Their menu offers something for everyone and each omelette has a hilarious name. For example, The Sexy Omelette and The Meter Maid. The only downfall is that sometimes you have to wait a few minutes to be seated but that's only because it's so good! So, hop on the bandwagon. You'll be happy you did.
Starbucks Coffee: Unfortunately, I can't go a day without my daily dosage of caffeine and I'm only 17. I'm ok with that though simply because Starbucks is so yummy. My go-to drink is their Pike Place Roast Coffee. It's smooth and perfectly balanced taste is only $1.50. A price that is perfect for a high school teenager like myself.
