Best Fresh Coconut from Local 1205

Next time you're shopping/walking around Abbot Kinney, stop by Local 1205's counter and grab a thirst quenching, energizing, revitalizing, and most importantly delicious, super fresh young coconut. MMMM. Local 1205 is a gourmet marketplace and café located on Abbot Kinney in Venice. The juice takeaway spot in the entrance is one of our favorite stops on the street, specifically for their ice cold fresh young coconuts. The store also features charcuterie, assortments of cheese, gourmet made-to-order sandwiches, tonic-infused smoothies, artisan breads, homemade desserts, fresh cut flowers, organic seasonal produce, and much more, so go explore. We love a spot that delivers a unique epicurean experience, and this place is just that.

If you can't make it here for their coconuts, any other Thai young coconuts will do-- like Melissa's. Just make sure to refrigerate it before drinking, they taste best when ice cold!
