Salt & Straw is home to the best ice cream in LA and has the lines out the door to prove it. It moves pretty quickly though, even with your friend asking to sample every flavor before she makes a decision. The specials board can get a bit weird (edible bugs for Halloween, buttered mashed potato for Thanksgiving), but is always worth investigating. Even if you do end up always going back to the salted, malted, chocolate chip cookie dough. You can’t be on Abbot Kinney and not go here.

Hinano Cafe is a Venice icon and the kind of place you go into for one drink and walk out plastered and maybe with a lower-back henna tattoo.
Sunny Spot is only a mediocre Venice brunch spot, but it’s a great spot for day drinking.
