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

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
