Some of my favorite adventures are days spent exploring with friends. I am lucky enough to live close to Los Angeles, CA. With so many exciting things to do, I love taking day trips into the city & checking out fun places. A few weeks ago, a couple friends and I headed to Melrose Ave to celebrate one of their birthdays! Here is a glimpse at some of my favorite places we went!
Crumbs & Whiskers
Crumbs & Whiskers is a new cat cafe located on Melrose Ave. The cafe is home to several kitties that are up for adoption! If you’re planing to go, there are a few things you should know! First, you need a reservation. If you’ve ever spent time around a bunch of cats, you know that they can be a little skittish. To help keep the kitties calm, they limit the amount of people who can come into the cafe at one time. Want to ensure you get to play with the felines? Make a reservation on Crumb & Whiskers website before you go!
After check in, you place an order for some “sips & nibbles”! The food is brought in from Open Space LA. You have a just over an hour to play with the cats as you enjoy your snacks. My friends and I had so much fun petting all the kitties!
Murals on Melrose
Melrose Ave is full of murals. Along the street you can find several popular walls including the Made in LA mural, Paul Smith’s Pink store front, & the #Hello Kiss Wall! Of course we took a few photos at each of them as we walked around. Thankfully, we were able to get our photos before lines of people started to form!
The Alfred Tea Room is a trendy little pink tea house. Known for having tons of different tea’s and pastel decor, this adorable place is worth a stop! Just expect a line, it gets busy! If you are unsure what to order, the Matcha tea is my favorite!
Thanks for reading, I hope you get a change to visit some of my favorite places in LA!
