Sundays at the Gentle Barn

Every Sunday

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday away from the city with bundles of adorable, rescued farm animals. It’s like a dog cafe if you just think of cows as oversized Dalmatians… or, are we the only ones

 

The Fancy Taco Truck

Multiple Days

Mexican street classics like queso covered burritos, shrimp tacos, and sloppy yet indulgent tortas make The Fancy Taco a destination to keep in your weekly rotation.

Multiple Days

Experience an evening of intimate dining, accommodating hosting, and handcrafted vegan food inspired by the cuisines of several different African countries.

Vegan Pop-Ups at BESTIES

Every Saturday

SoCal vendors join East Hollywood’s BESTIES—an all-vegan convenience store specializing in quick, easy, and affordable bites—for a midday excursion. Follow their Instagram page for updates on upcoming events!

 

Hinterhof's all Vegan German Brunch

Every Saturday & Sunday

Just a couple months after opening, Hinterhof is meshing German and American cuisines into one, cohesive eye-popping brunch menu. Some standout items include their Pretzel Bread French Toast and Schnitzel and Waffles, which is akin to a German take on chicken and waffles. If you’re ready for a lavish brunch you’ll never forget, Hinterhof is your weekend destination.

 

The Little Green Kitchen Pop-Up

Every Sunday

Feast on nachos, tostadas, tacos, and cheesecake at the Brentwood Farmers Market from 9am-2pm!

 

Vegan Sunday

Every Sunday

Four years ago, we could’ve never imagined we’d get the chance to enjoy juicy burgers and fried chicken sandwiches. One year ago, we could’ve never imagined we’d be able to get those things every week. Today, we’re reclaiming our childhood favorites every weekend at Vegan Sunday.

 

Sundays at the Gentle Barn

Every Sunday

Enjoy a relaxing Sunday away from the city with bundles of adorable, rescued farm animals. It’s like a dog cafe if you just think of cows as oversized Dalmatians… or, are we the only ones?

 

Smorgasburg

Every Sunday

Enjoy Instagrammable eats from LA’s most prestigious pop-ups, including Workaholic, Happiness Capsule, Donut Friend, Señoreata, and more!

This month’s Smorgasburg tip: Nothing’s worse than finally getting your hands on something, only to find out its severely overrated. You know, those things that look great online, but leave you underwhelmed in person? We know the feeling, which just makes it that much better that thing you’ve been seen on Instagram for months is everything you’d hope it to be. One such thing that falls into that category is Avocadamama’s Mac ‘n’ Cheese, which is saucy, noodle-y, savory, and cheesy perfection. If you’ve been on a quest to find the city’s best vegan mac ‘n’ cheese, then Avocadama needs to be next up on your list. We never knew plants could taste so… cheesy.
