Joy Knows

Highland Park

Between the Spanish bungalows and Arroyo rock foundations of artfully restored porches, Highland Park is rich with an abundance of beautifully-crafted single family homes. With art galleries, salons, trendy bars, and coffee shops all on the same block, the neighborhood is well renowned as an artistically and culturally vibrant community. Just check out the creative energy on York Boulevard for a taste of the vibe. And if you’re looking to satisfy your sweet tooth, you can choose between old-fashioned sodas and vintage candy at Galco’s Soda Pop Stop or newfangled flavor creations at Donut Friend. Most homes priced around $850,000.

“Every time I go to Figueroa, there’s something new in Highland Park.”

Dining

Eat at the York for burgers and beer, try one of the new pizza places that keep popping up, or be one of the first to discover Highland Park Wine.

Shops

Like a lot of LA neighborhoods, you’ll find great vintage shops here — but for something a little different, check out the mix of goods at Social Study.

Places

Sure, it belongs under “dining” … but the Côté Est Bistro is a destination, with escargot and steak frites bringing a taste of France to the Eastside.

Let’s grab coffee or a glass of wine
