"The best spots are spread out but still worth it"

At the base of Occidental College is the main artery of Eagle Rock Blvd.. Along this strip a slow change has shifted the endless mechanics and body shops slowly over to some really wonderful restaurants and shops.
First and foremost has to be Auntie Em's Restaurant. Their menu here is seasonal comfort food and they do it well. Having been featured on several cooking shows Auntie Em's is world famous for their cupcakes. Their Red Velvet cupcake is thought to be the best in the world. They are huge so, unless you are really in the mood for cupcake ordering one for two or more is recommended (it can be done by one though... trust me). Since the menu changes often it is hard to nail down one dish but they do make a mean meatloaf and their salads are so wonderful and fresh. Breakfast here is a big deal and expect a wait on a weekend for sure.
A welcome addition to the neighborhood was the Fresh and Easy grocery store. This is a great place to get staples that are a touch better and a little less expensive than what you would find elsewhere. I couldn't do all my shopping there but for what it is it is great.
The Bucket is a hamburger stand pure and simple. It has burgers and beer and attracts quite the collection of bikers and their buddies on weekends.
The Capri is homestyle Italian food with family service. Great people but so so food.
The closer you get to Colorado blvd. the more chain s pop up but there are the stand outs like the Rock and Roll baby shop and Armand's diner. There's a Foster's Freeze for nostalgia and Eagle Rock Hardware. The Bowling Alley has Karaoke on Sat. which is indeed popular especially on the You Tube.
I have to mention Verdugo Bar which is actually off Eagle Rock over by the swimming pool on Verdugo Blvd. It is the best beer hall in LA. They have amazing beers there and the place has been redone with style and panache. Some of the beers are so limited and exclusive that there are only a few kegs in the entire country. It is a privilege to have this wonderful place in the neighborhood.

"Busy, Dirty Boulevard!"

This street is very busy and not pretty. There are mostly business' type buildings and apartment complexes, nothing well known or any type of well known retail stores. It's not a safe street to be on at night as there are street walkers at night. The street is lined with telephone poles. The buildings are all run down. Not a great street to look at but there is heavy traffic on it because it is an easy path to take if you are going thru that area.
