Great White, a new Australian eatery located just off Venice boardwalk, is a chic cafe where beachgoers and locals can stop in, pull up a stool, and hang out. No shoes? No problem.
What I love most about the beachside bistro is that it seems to strike the perfect beach/city balance: the ambience is casual yet hip, and the locally sourced ingredients and elegant plating are qualities you’d only expect from an upscale restaurant.
The menu, exclusively comprised of breakfast and lunch, includes matcha and golden tumeric lattes, a myriad of colorful smoothies, and kombucha on tap. Oh, and let’s not forget the epic avocado toast and out-of-this-world blue smoothie bowl.
I’m just going to go ahead and assume Great White is Goop approved. Scroll on for a glimpse of the bites I tried. Each dish felt comforting and satisfying, which is always a win when it comes to health food.
