Larchmont Front

Neighborhood Guide - Larchmont Village

Is Larchmont LA's tiniest neighborhood? Is it the cutest? We have a super soft spot for this historic enclave, having opened our second-ever cafe (and the first we'd name Go Get Em tiger) right in the heart of Larchmont Village in 2013. Whether you're a regular here or haven't dug into this charming—dare we say walkable?—little area yet, it's worth spending an afternoon (re)exploring its many charms. Here are some of our top spots.

From their certified B Corp status to the unbelievable flavors (all of which are natural and use whole ingredients), we'll gladly indulge at Jeni's any day of the week.

SHOP

Larchmont Village Wine, Spirits, Cheese

@larchmontvillagewine

Their name is Wine, Spirits, and Cheese, but what they're not saying is...SANDWICHES!! Absolutely a go-to for great wines in the area, this is the it spot (besides, um, Go Get Em Tiger) for grabbing an amazing sandwich to go on delectable fresh-baked bread at the not-so-secret sandwich counter. Sandwiches focus on their (excellent) charcuterie and deli meats, with a couple of vegetarian options as well.

What to buy:
Sopresatta salami sandwich with manchego and sundried tomato spread

Burns Park

Just a few blocks East of Larchmont is Robert L. Burns Park, a great urban park with green lawns and sand, modern kids' play structures, and picnic tables. Yoga in the park happens many weekday mornings, and if you didn't stop at Jeni's first, keep an eye out for the ice cream cart.
