Urban Remedy

Expect nothing but organic ingredients, seasonal vegetables, and immunity-boosting spices at this eatery founded by an acupuncturist and Chinese medicine practitioner. They serve ketogenic-friendly bowls, vegan burgers, and cacao protein bars.urbanremedy

 

Lofty Coffee

Some cafés are all caffeine, no food. Not so at Lofty, where a visit can include avocado toast, organic poached eggs, or grain bowls alongside your cuppa. loftycoffeeco

 

SoLo

It’s the gold standard for gift boutiques. Set in a restored warehouse, this collective of local vendors sells art books, home decor, and more under one roof. solocedros

 

Pink Lagoon

Beyond J Brand denim, Loeffler Randall accessories, and apparel by Hollywood stylists Emily Current and Meritt Elliot, the hip boutique also has an in-house, high-end consignment shop where you’ll find Gucci bags and Chanel accessories. pinklagoon

 

GracedByGrit

Backed by an all-female team, GBG zeroes in on stylish, functional workout tops, leggings, and shorts made in the US with sustainable fabrics, whether they’re for running, tennis, or yoga. gracedbygrit

Madison Gallery

The former La Jolla gallery has new digs on Cedros Avenue. Their inaugural exhibition, New Generation, is on display through the end of the month, featuring James Verbicky’s mixed media, text-centric pieces by Robert Montgomery, and a neon light installation by Olivia Steele. madisongallery

 

Clutch Modern

Bixby & Ball is a Cedros staple, but for more furniture and decor finds, head to this year-old boutique, which favors modern and midcentury designs. Their house-blend oil, made with cardamom, lemon, sandalwood, and cedar, is popular for room diffusing. clutchmodern
