I love the The British Shop, attached to Ye Olde King's Head on Santa Monica just before Ocean. Love that they have British food stuffs like Branston Pickes, Vegemite, and OXO, and appreciate the beautiful tea sets and Brown Betty teapots.
Where else in West LA/Santa Monica can I go for an equally British experience? The British Shoppe's located on prime real estate and a bit rich for my blood. I would love to find my jarred foods and Roy Kirkham mugs for a little cheaper.
Ocean Avenue Seafood around the corner turned out to be a real gem! Happy hour oysters are a steal, and on a Sunday around 3pm the place was anything but crowded. Service was lovely, and we fell in love with Hood Canal oysters. $15 for the plate below.
