Venice Beach is a fun place to be. It was and still is the cool place to hang out. While there are lots of vagrants and bums mixed in with tourists, you can see lots of bizarre and strange as well as fun and interesting. Drum circles on the beach every Sunday late afternoon.
For many years, the pink Krishna temple that occupies the corner of Rose and and 2nd Ave operated an all-you-can-eat buffet style kitchen but that was shut down for a few years now... but I heard that they may be trying to get their lease back and open a restaurant again (info March 09). The all vegan burger joint, Good Karma, on the Boardwalk came and went - it lasted less than one year. Fortunately, there's the Fruit Gallery on the boardwalk, Seed on Pacific Ave & Windward, J's Kitchen on Abbot Kinney Blvd. Abbot Kinney is a neat little street to go walking on and check out the shops.
