Ariel and I stumbled upon a shopping gem while walking back to the car after Silver Lake Jubilee last year. I’ve been dreaming about that store for a solid ten months now, so a Silver Lake shopping extravaganza was the most appropriate present I could give myself for hiking Runyon every day since my arrival.
We scoped out the area (virtually) for a vegan cafe prior to getting our shop on. Flore Vegan Cuisine it was!
I’ve had fairly solid kraut cravings lately, so ordering anything but the Tempeh Reuben wasn’t an option. Ariel, afraid of what a vegan Reuben may taste like, ordered The Wrap. Both sandwiches were served with a mondo side of greens. I’m not sure either of us loved our meals, but it was nothing to complain about either.
The lemon poppy seed cupcake was brag-worthy. Ariel ordered a second after tasting mine and the server tossed in a third to apologize for the wait. Hooray for leftover cupcakes!
We headed next door to Pull My Daisy, Sarah’s favorite store. Words can’t express how much I miss seeing that chickadee during my LA adventures!
Then it was off to find our gem! Vintage, embroidered fish vest, anyone?
(I couldn’t resist trying on something that ridiculous!)
