Halston Sage’s Guide to LA

July 7, 2015

Between crimson-carpet walkways and glossy magazine pages, actress Halston Sage is everywhere. It’s no surprise then that her City Guide spans everything LA has to offer, from the best granola in Venice to her favorite Santa Monica brew. Follow our July guest editor as she walks us through her chosen spots in the City of Angels—and be sure to check back throughout the month for more inside her world.

 

GJUSTA

320 Sunset Ave, Venice, CA 90291

(310) 314-0320

"My new go-to breakfast spot: the café-offshoot of Venice’s Gjelina is the best way to start my day. Between the fresh berries and honey drizzle, the crunchy almonds and walnuts with Gjusta's signature touch, something about this granola makes it my favorite on the coast."
 

GROUNDWORK COFFEE

2908 Main St, Santa Monica, CA 90405

(310) 452-8925

"I drink my coffee black, and this place brews it just right—strong, but not too bitter. I look forward to it every single day."
 

MERCADO

7910 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90048

"Mercado is the perfect place to drink margaritas and eat chips, guac and tapas all night long. I love the steak tacos and am always in the mood for them—seriously."

 


MAXWELL DOG

12336 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, CA 91604

(818) 505-8411

"I love shopping for my dog almost more than I love shopping for myself! This is the cutest boutique and where I buy all of my dog’s collars and doggie beds. They also have vintage-style dog tags that you can customize."
 

TASCHEN

6333 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA 90036 (At The Grove)

(323) 931-1168

"Books are my favorite gifts, and Taschen has a boundless collection of coffee-table tomes. You can find one on almost any subject—buy your friend a book about their favorite city or hobby for a foolproof present. You never think to buy them for yourself, but they make for great decor after you’ve flipped through them."

 


MALIBU YOGURT

23755 Malibu Rd, Malibu, CA 90265

(310) 456-3522

"My mom and I are addicted to their peanut butter frozen yogurt with hot fudge on top! Plus, I think everything tastes better when you're out in the beach air."
