10 Forward Coffee and Tea Lounge, 1635 N. Vine St., Los Angeles, CA 90028 (323)871-4104

Located on Vine Street, south of Hollywood Boulevard.

How does a new indie coffee shop thrive in this era of franchise? “Quality”, and that’s what you’ll get when you step inside Hollywood’s newest star, Ten Forward Coffee & Tea Lounge. Offering a wide range of international, organic teas, luscious espresso and velvety lattes, this little treasure on Vine Street between Hollywood and Sunset, is sure to knock the socks off even the mightiest skeptic; connoisseur. Hungry? Be sure to try their ambrosial French desserts, cookies and homemade grilled sandwiches. The desire for coffee may draw you in, but the cozy atmosphere (which includes a quiet, trendy balcony-lounge) and view of the colorful foot traffic, may just keep you there. Luckily, they’re open ‘til midnight.

Today I went to 10 Forward Coffee and Tea Lounge, located in the most famous intersection in the world, Hollywood and Vine. It was my second time there, ever (I had coffee there 2 months ago- it was really good!) I had to use the restroom when I went in today, and, voila! They had a restroom (for customers only), so I got the key and used the restroom first, and then I came back to get something nice to drink. Hot chocolate sounded good, so I asked for it. Yes, they had it! They also had some tasty and healthy-looking oatmeal cookies, so I got one to go. My hot chocolate was excellent, and so was the cookie! I was told by the proprietors that they have organic treats there, too.

Loteria Grill, 6627 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90028 (323)465-2500

Located on Hollywood Blvd. near Cherokee Avenue.

Loteria Grill serves really great, tasty Mexican food. This location in Hollywood is new, and looks beautiful as you drive by it on Hollywood Blvd. The last time I went, I had the Enchiladas de Pipian, which came with rice and black beans. Mmmmm, good! I also love the Chilaquiles.

If You Like Hot Dogs, You Must Go To Pink's!

If you want a really good hot dog- what my Mom says is "to die for", you must go to Pink's! I loved their Guadalajara Dog! Pink's is probably the most popular single fast food place in Los Angeles- hands down! They always have a line outside, and if you have someone visiting from out of town and they want to see Hollywood, you should take 'em to Pink's! Pink's also serves hamburgers and Pastrami sandwiches, and all kinds of hot dogs, including Polish dogs. Pink's is located at 709 N. La Brea Avenue in Hollywood, near Melrose.
