Neighborhood Guide: Ocean Beach

Where to eat, drink, and play in the beach enclave


Newport Avenue

Ocean Beach This Month

BO-beau Kitchen + Bar Valentine’s Dinner,
February 14  

OB Farmers Market,
4900 block of Newport Avenue

Bar 1502

An offshoot of the always-packed OB Noodle House, 1502 has a (slightly) shorter wait with similar dishes, like the chicken wings and warm-your-belly pho.

Little Lion

As if a Sunset Cliffs location wasn’t enough, Little Lion focuses its small menu on high-quality ingredients—like Mike & Sons eggs and the same bacon used at The French Laundry—and charming decor.
1424 Sunset Cliffs Boulevard little_lion_cafe



It’s all about artisanal everything at this boutique, where soaps, candles, toys, stationery, and more are handcrafted, and often locally made. It also houses a café, The Nest, inside.

Housed in a 1920s cottage, Thistle creates centerpieces, bouquets, and succulents in their shop, which also sells cards and giftables.
4822 Santa Monica Avenue


The Holistic Science Company

The Holistic Science Company

Eco-friendly, nontoxic, and cruelty-free is the mantra at this apothecary, which makes serums, body oil, shampoo, and more. Their rose lip balm/cheek tint is a favorite.
