Fun on Melrose: Farmers Market, Vintage Shop, Bo Nuage & Crossroads Restaurant

Dear members,

I like to go to vintage shops, so I was excited to learn that our fellow member Lysa owns a vintage shop on Melrose Ave called L.A. Rose Vintage Fashion. (Info below)  One day I had a chance to go check it out and loved it)  

Since there are so many fun places on Melrose, and I live close, I thought of spending a Sunday afternoon together to explore. 

We can start at Melrose Place Farmers Market from La Cienega side. The market opens every Sunday from 10am to 2pm.  If you want to start with a brunch by yourself at nearby Fig & Olive, here's the menu:

Or you might want to have a lunch at Mari Vanna, across the street.

Let me know, I might be able to join.

Anyway, here's the excursion plan:

1) We can get together around 1pm at the Farmers Market at La Cienega side.

Melrose Place Farmers Market

8400 Melrose Place

Los Angeles, CA 90069

I'll email my cell number to the attendees.

Then, we'll stroll around Melrose Place and Melrose Ave. There are so many places you might want to check out;  Comme Ca, Ago, Lucques, Taste on Melrose, Ink, Sweet Lady Jane, Cakemix, Red O, just to name a few.

2) Lysa's Vintage Shop

L.A. Rose Vintage Fashion

8064 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046


It's near Crescent Heights Blvd, close to Fred Segal.

3) Pastry Shop Bo Nuage

A cute little boutique that only serves French meringue cakes, but they are fresh and mmmm I need to go back soon.....

Bo Nuage

8010 Melrose Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90046

"Bo Nuage is an elegant, Parisian-styled boutique bringing you the unique experience that is the luxurious Nuage. Named for their fluffy texture, these treats combine the crispness of a fresh Meringue with the light sweetness of whipped cream in a variety of handcrafted and delicious flavors. Dedicated to quality and our customer’s satisfaction, we offer gluten free and nondairy options"

4) Crossroads Restaurant

Since last year enough members/friends have recommended this vegan place (thanks to Maxine and others), so I've been itching to try.


8284 Melrose Ave

Los Angeles, CA 90046


I reserved a table of 6 at 5pm.  

If you'd like to attend, please sign up with prepayment of $7 by Paypal.  This is to avoid no-shows and if you prefer, I can email you the methods of credit/debit card payment or Amazon Payment. 

Please also indicate where you'd like to join.  Farmers Market, or Lysa's store, or Bo Nuage, or Crossroads.  I will email later to the attendees with the payment the times when we go to each spot between  1pm at Farmers Market and 5pm at Crossroads. 

And for the dinner at Crossroads, I'm thinking of ordering individually.

Menu is here:

As in the past meetups with prepayment, I will give back $7 in cash when you show up at the place you specified.  Please also email me your cell number so that we can communicate on the road if you join at different spots.

Excited to have fun strolling together,

    Sally, I did not check soccer schedule. It will be USA vs Portugal Sunday at 3 pm. If you like to have soccer in the program, it will be great to watch together. Otherwise I would like to leave before 3pm to find a place in the area for World Cup!

      Hi Melina. I'd like to go for the stroll AND must see the USA/GERMANY game. I'm sure we can find a sports bar!

      June 21, 2014

    • Melina

      Hi, Marcus. I will meet Sally after the game for dinner. So I would find a place around the area to watch the game.

    Hi Sally, I won't be able to attend the dinner portion. Is this ok?

      Sorry.. didn't know either till yesterday.

      June 22, 2014

  • Marcus A.

    Hi guys:

    I would like to go to the Farmer's Market & stroll portion (with two guests), but like others (see comments), I want to see USA v Germany--so, as much as we'd like to join you for dinner, that part of the event doesn't work. Can me + 2 join you for the first part? And if so, please include us in your plans; but I can't formally sign up since there are only two spots; and you are charging for a meal that we can't attend.

    Please advise ASAP. Namaste,
