With the opening of our Downtown LA location, we're super pumped to explore the area and see what it has to offer. An up-and-coming area of LA for foodies, we know that things can get pretty pricey around here, but there are also a ton of cheaper spots serving up some killer eats. We've rounded up some of our favorites, but we're still learning so send us your favorites at email@example.com!
Eggslut - For less than 10 bucks, snag one of these unreal breakfast sandwiches between 8am and 4pm any day of the week. The sausage, egg & cheese sandwich on warm brioche will blow your mind. Wash it down with their fresh orange juice or some cold brew!
Seasalt Fish Grill - This somewhat hidden gem is a favorite of ours at Cross Campus! They have something for everyone from salads to tacos to sandwiches to poke bowls. This place makes eating healthy on a budget a no-brainer.
800 Degrees - If you haven't been to one of these yet, now is your chance because the 800 degrees in DTLA is right on the bottom floor of Cross Campus! They have a ton of choices for crust and sauce, and have pretty much every topping imaginable. Follow them on Instagram to find out their Pizza of the Day (#POTD) that only costs $5! Can't beat that.
Birdies - A newer DTLA favorite, Birdies serves up drool-worthy fried chicken for $10 and under. If you're craving something sweet after your fried chicken sandwich, grab one of their beautiful donuts. We've heard the horchata twist with dulce de leche donut is spectacular!
Mendocino Farms - Another popular LA chain, "Mendo" boasts super fresh, high quality ingredients at awesome prices. Their regular menu is always fantastic, but they rotate seasonal items as well, which keeps things interesting if you're a regular. My suggestion - the Save Drake Farm's Salad or Spicy Lemongrass Steak Banh Mi.
