  1. Civil Coffee

It’s a good day to be civil”– we love a cheeky quote! The best thing about this café is that it started from humble beginnings, quite literally! They began operating from the back of a pick-up with a single espresso machine and a DIY cart. The food is unreal and MOREISH, did someone say fried chicken and blueberry waffles?

  1. Eightfold Coffee

There are two words that come to mind with this spot – minimalist and industrial. Eightfold is new to the Sunset Blvd strip, but you can never have too many coffee shops. Go green and try their Matcha latte, it’s real earthy! The chic interior makes for the perfect meeting spot, whether it be professional or personal.

You'll love'em

5/5 stars. I've owned Bata, Courteney, livingstone, etc.... These are the best vellies. Not to mention they're ALREADY IN THE USA! So you wait 2-3 days to get them instead of 2-3 months(no kidding). A tip with vellies.. No socks.. If you want to break them in quick put them under steaming water and wear them around the house for 4-5 hours or till dry. AND MAGIC! they conform to your feet and saves you blisters! The leather is sooooo smooth and feels GREAT on your feet. I have 3 pair of Veldskoen Brand vellies and looking forward to getting the new high tops soon!

Well made

Great show that you tel only improves with wear , comfortable and light weight

Excellent shoe!

My husband is South African and almost exclusively wears vellies. I finally gave in and bought a pair for myself and not only are they super cute but they are comfortable and hold up well when we are walking potato fields! Love these!

Love ‘em!!

True to size, so comfy and looks great!!

Great shoes, good quality, delivered on time. Only thing that surprised me was how round the toes were compared to the picture online, but it’s not that big of a deal, still look and feel great.
