If you live in Los Angeles and work anywhere near Venice Beach, we recommend heading to Gjusta for lunch. From the same co-owners who run Gjelina (which we also love), it features breads baked on site, charcuterie, cheese, salads, pastries and fresh juices.
Everything is on display in really fantastic glass cases, grouped as little individual shops.
Grab a little of everything and head to the beach for a lunchtime picnic. We got a caprese sandwich, blondie, herbed goat cheese, salad and sparkling limeade. You can view their menu here, and preorder to save time.
