Pick-up from 7 a.m. or have coffees and teas delivered to your home office – perhaps along with a warm and toasty all-day breakfast sandwich on croissant or bagel, or breakfast sliders on brioche.

Dining and Drinks for the Heat

Northern Café

Los Angeles, CA 90028

Spice can heat the palette and warm you from head to tummy.

Delivery is available from a variety of sources including Door Dash and Grubhub.

St. Felix Hollywood
1602 N Cahuenga Blvd
Hollywood, CA 90028
(323) 469-5001

Bring home spicy fried chicken sliders, chipotle shrimp pasta, or an order of Thai deviled eggs with spicy peanut sauce. This sleek and trendy spot will keep your taste buds warm. Call to verify take-out and pick-up options; the restaurant will be closed due to COVID-19 until December 21st.

Jameson’s Irish Pub 
6681 Hollywood Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90028
(323) 798-5360

From Prime Rib Chili to Buffalo Cauliflower with Sriracha aioli sauce, you’ll find plenty of tasty options to keep you warm at this homey Irish pub. Order with a Guinness to go or a “generous Irish pour” cocktail.


The Mission Cantina
5946 Sunset Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90028
(323) 469-3130

A limited take-out and delivery menu or burritos and bowls offer hearty, warming meals such as char-broiled sirloin carne asada, and Spicy Crispy Potato and Cauliflower a la Salsa Roja.

Hollywood, CA 90028
(323) 957-9999

Take out or delivery, this Indian “hot spot” has plenty to make your taste buds sing. There are plenty of well-spiced choices from the tandoor oven or curries such as chicken Vindaloo. There are plenty of Vegetarian and Vegan options, too.

Winter Apparel

Supply Sergeant 
6664 Hollywood Blvd.
Hollywood, CA 90028
(323) 463-4730

Cold weather won’t mean a thing in winter-wear such as a Zephyr down jacket or Condor outdoor fleece multi-wrap. And if nights spent in socially distanced outdoor socializing on balconies or patios prove chill, wrap up in an Emergency Blanket that reflects body heat. This lightweight, compact option is made from thermal material evolved from the insulation on space exploration gear. Thanks to discount pricing, it’s not “out of this world” to buy.
