The owners of this spot are certified holistic nutritionists and live their motto of “love what you do, do it with love,” by using 100% organic and vegan ingredients.

The Black Bean
Say goodbye to chicken and waffles, and hello to chicken and croissants––all vegan, of course! This spot’s Soul Saver is a fried ‘chicken’ patty in a croissant with their house-made spicy maple ‘honey’ syrup. You can even add bacon to it for an extra crunch! If you’re not ready for all of the glory of this item, they also sell their croissants individually!
Just What I Kneaded
Conchas, cinnamon rolls, and croissants––oh my! Justine Hernandez is a baking mastermind that has popped up all over LA with her goodies. She is moving on up to a brick and mortar set to open at the end of the summer.
