Venice Food & Juice
Venice isn’t quite the juice mecca that Encinitas is, but there is a greater focus on vegan and vegetarian food.
ZennBunni Chocolate [LINK] We’ve got to start with the chocolate. And their rabbit hole, from which they sell the biodynamic and organic chocolate is on Abbott Kinney. (1629, the same address as the Stone Cold Fox — so make sure you check in and let us know its there.)
Plant Food and Wine [LINK] A Matthew Kenney restaurant on Abbot Kinney, it went 100% vegan in June of 2016. There’s a cool patio in back and an on-site edible garden.
The Butcher’s Daughter [LINK] Another vegetarian spot on Abbot Kinney, The Butcher’s Daughter, Venice began in New York. According to the site, they treat fruits and vegetables as a butcher would treat meat. And they’re a juicery as well. As much as we dislike straight kale juice, we’d much prefer it to a freshly juiced deer. (We know, bad imagery.)

A Few Juice Bars
Vegan Scene [LINK] We found The Vegan Scene on HappyCow but a little research indicated that the store is not a restaurant, but a boutique that offers classes at night. We’re not saying it’s not cool, but it’s not about food.
