This used to be Gorilla Foods, now it's this - and looks similar with similar food. It is on the pricier side, but it's good, whole, nutritious food, plus they have Kombucha on tap!

Delicious pizza (and others) family friendly, a nice patio - walking distance from my place or bus. They use bullfrog power for their energy - green gas, and strive for ethical/local food choices.

Everything Else

A nice beach, a bit quieter than English Bay/Sunset Beach - also I would say the water is likely cleaner here to swim in, but still want to be careful. Oil spills have happened - no more tankers!
