From Culver City south Hwy 1

Looking forward to visiting down south. Only going to be here for four days. Sergio, Tanner coffee, Sorrento market. Love it. I want to drive south early morning Hwy 1 to maybe Laguna. Anything along the way to check out. Grab and go, coffee, pastries, lunch goodies, something to bring back and cook? I really enjoy the coast of southern California.
Have pastries at Patisserie Chantilly in Lomita (sesame cream puff esp.), have Charro BBQ chicken at Seal Beach, have a drink at Las Brisas in Laguna (food here is mediocre.) If an Asian food Fan, swing back via 405 take Culver Blvd or Jeffries exit check out the mini-malls, try AJ for lovely Taiwanese food; return to I-405 and take Bolsa exit, check out the food court at the garish Asia Mall for Vietnamese street food or the restaurant behind the 99 Cent store for a really wide assortment of scrumptious Vietnamese dishes; return to I-405 and take the Carson exit away from Ikea check out Red Ribbon bakery or Seafood Grocery for Filipino snack food. Bon Appetit.

Unfortunately, unless you are willing to leave the PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) and take a few other roads, you aren't going to be seeing any ocean vistas until you get to around Seal Beach down in Orange County.
