I love Los Angeles but these days, with the weather camped out in the high 90's and the occasional visit to three digits, I seriously question my loyalty. However, the beauty of Los Angeles is that even though it gets incredibly hot, you can always cool down near the beach in a 45 min drive.
Hidden away among warehouses in Newport Beach is Daydream Surf Shop, one part coffee shop and one part surfboard shop. The bright, open space is a great place to grab a cup of coffee, relax, and hangout with Penelope, the pug. They've got great coffee and a selection of tea for all you non-coffee drinkers. You can also shop for a surfboard, things to decorate your home, or things to decorate yourself (clothes, accessories, shoes, etc). The owner is incredibly friendly and welcoming so you'll feel right at home whether you relax on their couch or work (or scroll through FB) at their coffee bar. Also, there's a cool old car parked outside if you're a cool kid and feel like an impromptu photo shoot with your Huji app.
