Last week, I turned 17! To celebrate, I stayed at the Beverly Hills Hotel (also known as The Pink Palace because of its adorable color)! The entire trip was a (very pink!) dream. Can you guess my favorite color? 😉 While there, we both enjoyed the hotel’s yummy restaurants and tested some other great places around the city, all of which I am thrilled to share with you in this blog post.
Breakfast: The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel
What do I love more than almond milk lattes and beautiful flowers? I don’t think anything is better! For breakfast I dined on scrambled egg whites, gluten-free toast, and avocado!
Lunch: The Cabana Cafe at The Beverly Hills Hotel
During my weekend in Beverly Hills, when I wasn’t eating, I was at the spa, by the pool, or shopping (although this blog post may cause you to think all I did was eat…haha!). The Cabana Cafe, located overlooking the pool, was the perfect lunchtime spot after a busy day of activities!
Although July is hot and sunny, I could never pass up an opportunity to indulge in some of The Beverly Hills Hotel’s famous tortilla soup decadently topped with avocado and chicken. For my entree, I enjoyed the Asian Chicken salad complete with lots of flavor and lots of different veggies! I left a happy girl with a full tummy! 🙂
Snack Time: Cupcakes!
A special surprise and an afternoon treat was delivered to my room–gluten and dairy-free cupcakes! Not only were they delicious, but I was also ecstatic because I usually cannot eat cake on my birthday due to my allergies!
Afternoon Pick-Me-Up: Alfred (Tea and Coffee)
Since I had the entire weekend to enjoy Beverly Hills and its surroundings, I decided to try both Alfred Coffee and Alfred Tea over the course of the trip!
Alfred Tea is probably the prettiest place ever because of its adorable pink decor! I ordered a matcha boba drink with almond milk. It was my first time trying both boba and matcha, so I guess you could say I was a little late to the party–oops 😉
As much as I love tea, there is nothing like the refreshing taste of freshly brewed coffee. I tried the cold brew nitro at Alfred Coffee, which was outrageously delicious! I added almond milk and a sprinkle of stevia to top it off.
Dinner: Spago by Wolfgang Puck
I don’t have any pictures of my food from this dinner because it was too yummy to wait, so I ate it before taking a picture (oops)! I enjoyed a salad with a fresh lemon vinaigrette and date puree to start then Halibut with vegetables for my main course.
Overall, I was delighted with all of the spots mentioned in this blog post and absolutely recommend each of them because of the wonderful experiences I had on my birthday trip! If you’re ever in Beverly Hills and looking for fun, new places to try, I hope I can help!:)
