Good Eats in Southern California

On my last trip to Southern California a couple of years ago, I stumbled upon a quaint little restaurant that I enjoyed immensely and was the highlight of my trip. Real Food Daily is an organic vegan restaurant, one of the best vegan spots I have ever visited. It is a quaint little gem that is cozy and sure to please everyone’s palates, even the palates of the most ravenous meat eater among you.

I visited two of the three locations during my four-day trip: West Hollywood and Santa Monica. The other location is Pasadena. Real Food Daily offers a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches, and entrees for lunch, brunch, and dinner. There also is a robust selection of deserts and a fabulous beer and wine list, and just in case you’re wondering, all of their beers and wines are 100% vegan (traditional wines and beers are not).

The Lasagna was scrumptious and I enjoyed it so much, I ordered a second plate to take with me. I’m a nosey patron when visiting a restaurant that I enjoy and looking around at the other diners, I didn’t see anyone expressing displeasure.  As an added bonus, the staff was delightful, and it was clear they were all very customer-focused. Real Food Daily is a great find, and if you’re in the area, be sure to put it on your itinerary.

I'm an avid traveler for both domestic and international venues. I've learned a lot of things, some of them the hard way, that taught me valuable lessons. So, I am passing that knowledge on to others to help make their trip more enjoyable and stress-free. I also will share what I think are great venues, stores, restaurants, or other things that I enjoyed that I think others would enjoy as well. Knowledge is power, transformational. Let us share with each other.
