Eagle Rock (city explorer)

Milkfarm: a cheese shop that has a variety of cheese for you to make your own stunning charcuterie & cheese platters at home; they also serve up delicious lunches and sweet treats and...just started having classes! Call them (or follow on instagram) for upcoming events and classes. 
Four Cafe: serving breakfast on the weekends, this cafe has the best lemon ricotta pancakes in the city! Every day you can get delicious savory and sweet options from this beautifully decorated cafe. They have fresh flowers at every table and an amazing salvaged wood wall. Another must try? the brown buttered lavender cookies. 
Camilo's California Bistro: dine outside on a sunny morning at this simple, classic bistro and enjoy the banana's foster waffles and a mimosa.
Native Boutique:  one of two locations; this shop has feminine & bohemian dresses, clothes and jewelry to enhance any afternoon shopping trip and wardrobe.
Media Noche: this boutique is stocked full of cool men and women's clothing and shoes in addition to unique gifts and items from the home. We have featured items from this store on our gift guide here.
Leanna Lin's Wonderland: a jewelry designer herself, Leanna's little corner of Eagle Rock has a variety of jewelry and art to appeal to everyone. She also hosts a variety of classes and art events.
Letter's from LA: a cool shop with such a serene and bohemian vibe. Seriously, we want to decorate our homes like this store (and Anthropologie, of course). In addition to beautiful clothes, purses and shoes; this boutique showcases jewelry from local designers and houseware items. We featured Letter's from LA on our gift guide here.  
Swork's Coffee: cool coffee shop on the corner of Colorado and Eagle Rock. A great place to study, meet up with friends and take the kids (they have a small play area for the tots). Great coffee drinks -we love the chai latte and mayan mocha- as well as tasty treats. Some of those treats they make in-house...there is nothing like warm bakery smells sifting through the air on a cold morning! 
BMPP 5 Line Tavern: upscale pizza parlor (i.e. artisan pizza, kale salads, shoestring fries with truffle oil & parmesan) with craft beers in a casual setting.
The Sniveling Sibling: you are bound to find all the vintage items your heart desires for the home (i.e. items for the bar cart and unique dishes for your next dinner party) in this shop on Eagle Rock Blvd.  
Owl Talk: a funky, unique vintage shop filled with treasures - clothing and jewelry to enhance your wardrobe.
Core Club LA: yoga and dance classes in a lovely, clean studio on Colorado. The teachers give their students individualized attention and help them fine tune their yoga skills and poses. Check out the website and schedule of classes here
