When in Venice, I love stopping into Great White, a charming modern-meets-rustic cafe at Venice Beach.
Natural wood, sun-washed colors and light fixtures with exposed lightbulbs capture the area’s relaxed vibe, echoed by a healthy approach to food and drink. On the menu are avocado toast, fish tacos, a blue smoothie bowl colored with blue algae, green grain bowl, and Coco chop salad.
On hot days, cool off with a shaken iced latte, chilled golden turmeric latte, housemade lemonade, smoothies, kombucha on tap, or Mexican soda. Australian owners Sam Trude and Sam Cooper also make sure there’s always Vittoria coffee available.
After a leisurely lunch, it’s always pleasant to go for a stroll on the beach. Or hit the beach before stopping by. Its owners have said, “Sandy feet are always welcome.”
Great White is at 1604 Pacific Ave., Venice.
