Louise Roe's Most Insta-Worthy Restaurants & Rooftops in LA
Louise Roe here, bringing you more ways to take a bite out of life in LA! I've lived here for nearly 10 years, but I find that there are always new places to discover. LA is much more of a foodie city than people realize, and it’s getting better every day. I remember when I first moved here, great options were not as plentiful. But today, everywhere you look there’s amazing coffee, delicious healthy food options, and plenty of cheat-day worthy places to chow down at. Something LA also does really well? Beautifully designed spaces, whether it be an adorable sidewalk café or a stunning rooftop with panoramic views. Make sure to check out my favorite Insta-worthy (and yummy!) hotspots next time you're in town.
