L.A. Destination: Canyon Country Store

This legendary deli-market and café is tucked into the original L.A. hippie haven, along a residential stretch of Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills. When we make a trip here, we like to imagine we’re entering a time warp and heading back to the laidback days of the ‘60s and ‘70s, when Jim Morrison lived nearby. To this day, the folksy, community vibe is alive and well. The market sells everything from lattes to pastrami sandwiches to rolling papers. Locals pop by to shop or to simply relax on the patio, where people hang with their dogs and chat in the sunshine. Getting the most out of this throwback oasis means being in a social mood, so Josh D OG or Ghost OG are good pairings.
