The Spot, located in Hermosa Beach, is the oldest continuously operating vegetarian restaurant in Los Angeles. Originally established in 1977, chefs Tonya and Maurice Beaudet purchased the restaurant in 1980. Today, the Spot has become one of Southern California’s most popular plant-based eateries serving up creative culinary concoctions that are both healthy and delicious.
Most of our menu is available gluten-free, fat-free and dairy-free, or “vegan”. We always serve organic whole grains and legumes, using seasonal organic produce when available. We serve and cook only with purified water. Our homemade bread, cornbread and desserts are sweetened with raw agave. None of our recipes contain isolated soy protein (SPI). Our fat-free soups never contain any oils or dairy products.
Our kitchen produces simple, whenever possible organic, sustainable and locally sourced, high-vibrational cuisine, to delight, serve, nurture, love and inspire.
We cater gatherings ranging from weddings, parties, corporate events and holiday parties. We can tailor a customized plant-based catering menu for you and your guests.
