A valley hot spot for lunch is Aroma. If you live in the valley, you've been to Aroma. If you don't and you haven't, you must. Pretty sure it's the sister restaurant to my fave The Alcove in Los Feliz. Similar menu and feel but not quite the same. I had their special summer salad and it was to die for. Grilled peaches, chicken, cashews, goat cheese and raspberry vinaigrette. To diiiie for.

This is one of the cutest places in Santa Monica. This little bakery and cafe has some of the best looking pastries I've ever seen. I was salivating...salivation station. The sandwich was one of the best ever too. A
Marinated peppers & burrata sandwich with prosciutto. Burrata is everywhere right now, and for a reason. If you have yet to try it, do yourself a favor and get on it! It's so soft and melty, ahhh. Anyway, I will be going back to this place. I can't wait to try their lemon pistachio cake!

Little Dom's Deli

Most people familiar with Little Dom's know about it's awesome dinner menu and Monday night supper (a fixed 3 course dinner for $15 plus a bottle of wine for only $12!) but they aren't familiar with the little room next door: Little Dom's Deli. This is a great place to pop in and pick up a freshly made deli sandwich and side dish. The sandwiches we got were fabulous. Hearty and delicious. We weren't too keen on the potato salad, but it won't deter us from going back and trying another salad! They also have fresh margherita pizzas with different toppings, and a ton of different pastries for those looking for a quick morning bite.
