Culver City has many great neighborhood restaurants, but nothing quite matches the atmosphere of Jackson Market. This grocery/marketplace/deli exists in the middle of an entirely residential neighborhood and if you didn’t look closely you’d probably assume it was just another house on the block. Order any of their excellent sandwiches or fresh pressed juices at the counter, head to the excellent back patio (there’s an actual pond), pull out a good book, and pretend you’re Diane Keaton in a late-in-life romance movie.
