LAReview

There are plenty of places for beach snacks in Malibu (if you couldn’t tell by now), but when the only thing you want is a solid sandwich and impressive macaroni salad, Vintage Grocers has you covered. Located in the massive Trancas Country Market, this high-end grocery store is filled with all the prerequisite health foods you’d expect: green juices, specialty cheeses, and adaptogenic whatevers. But the deli is where the real action is—there’s a tri-tip sandwich that comes on a hot-pressed panini baguette and is covered with sauteed onions and bell peppers for a much-needed sweet kick. Plus, you have your choice of sides—salt and vinegar chips, coleslaw, pasta salad, fresh fruit, etc—but if you’re not getting the macaroni salad… get back in line and try again. Thick, al dente elbow macaroni paired with a creamy mayonnaise that’s used judiciously. Chef’s kiss.

Endless Color

If you took a natural wine shop, a retro vinyl store, and a pizza parlor, threw them all in a blender, and dropped it off in Topanga Canyon, you’d get Endless Color.
