This Eagle Rock location is a satellite showroom of the Larry St. John furniture warehouse down in Carson. Their sofas start at $600 and if you have ever looked for all hardwood framed furniture you know this is a good deal. Most styles of sofas and chairs can be customized to your specs with choices from 44" to 48" seats, pillowbacks vs. solid backs, down vs. wrapped foam, leather vs slipcovers etc. and more. They make a large number of their own sofas and pride themselves on being comparable to Pottery Barn, Eddie Bauer Home and that like in quality and appearance but their prices are close to 1/2. If you need furniture and are in the Pasadena area take a look at the Eagle Rock location. Parking is a bit tough and the building doesn't have A/C right now, but the inventory is worth it. The Carson location is much larger with more on display but I believe you can get whatever you need ordered. This weekend I saw an $800 leather club chair. I was sitting in it for a full 5 minutes before I figured out that it was a recliner as well. I am not really into recliners, but this one looked so nice as a chair I am looking forward to buying two. Definitely worth a look if you are in the market for furniture. The sales people are very pleasant and helpful. There are pricing sheets for the various sofas that are easy to understand. They also carry armoires, entertainment centers, dining, coffee and accent tables as well as ottomans. Definitely worth a look.
PROS: Quality furniture at great prices
CONS: parking - street and tough to find on weekends
We stay at this hotel whenever we visit Seattle. The rooms feel like luxury even though the price is generally affordable. They have meeting rooms and on site parking. Although the parking was fairly pricey, but I guess that is the case for most downtown hotels.
This place is not what you might think. I first stayed here 5 years ago when the warehouse district was on the upswing. Les Carillons was surrounded by some seedy buildings which I hear have already started to turn around. From the moment you walk in the door you are welcomed. The wood floors throughout are gorgeous! The rooms are all decorated with antiques. There are rooms available in the main house as well as some townhouses with more than 1 room for families. Breakfast is served daily as well as a wine and cheese hour in the the evening. If you have never stayed at a B&B I would highly recommend this one as an intro. The proprietors walked a wonderful balance between visiting with guests and allowing guests to enjoy their alone time. If you like to walk Canal St. is about 1/2 mile away.
This place is great because they have a large patio in the back that is covered so you can eat outside but not have to sit in the sun. It is an easy place to go with friends because they have tasty sushi but also offer a variety of other cooked foods for those who do not care for the raw fish. They also have very reasonable lunch specials. My favorite part is when they bring you your check, they do not just serve you any fortune cookie Wakcano's are dipped in white chocloate.
Cuban coffees, sandwiches and salads, beer and wine this place has it all. Check the website for the latest music schedule.
Great selection of old time sodas and candy that will remind you of the 70's and earlier. They also have a unique collection of soda's and beers. www.sodapopstop.com. The staff is very helpful. Parking is convenient.
This place has the best Sushi I have ever had!! The mini mall look from the front doesn't do justice to the quality of food. Very small space with limited hours.
I do not understand the hype for this place. I had the enchilladas and was not impressed. I thought the food quality added to the parking situation and the average wait were not worth it.
I am not sure what to think of this place. It came highly recommended to me by someone I trust and I love the location and the cleanliness. But I kept getting this one female vet and no matter how minor the trouble, I was spending at least $60 per visit, which in many cases seemed about $30-40 too much. So be wary if you do go. The boarding fees seem reasonable though.
