2 | Lil’ Simmzy’s Outdoor Dining South Bay

Lil’ Simmzy’s is the perfect spot for a mid-afternoon shopping break—or a hangout for you while your significant other is still browsing the stores. Sit down by the outdoor fountain, relax and sip an ice-cold beer. This spot is all about pub grub—think tacos, burgers and sandwiches (with a side of fries, please!). 


3 | Van Leeuwen Ice Cream

Welcome to The Point, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream! What’s made its way to California from New York has become a local favorite stop to cure your sweet tooth cravings. Some current flavor offerings are campfire s’mores and banana pudding, while classic flavors include mocha cookie crumble, vegan cookies and cream caramel swirl and pistachio. As Van Leeuwen likes to say, “A life without anything good is bad.” Now go get a scoop! 


4 | Tocaya Organica Outdoor Dining South Bay

Modern organic Mexican food is what Tocaya Organica is all about. Offering a healthier spin on classics with locally sourced ingredients, try the keto bowl, Tocaya salad or guiltless burrito for a burst of flavor. 


5 | North Italia

Name a better duo than pizza and pasta with a glass of wine… we’ll wait!

North Italia serves those Italian dishes you crave. Start with the white truffle garlic bread, dig into the cacio e pepe pizza and maybe share some spaghetti and meatballs! Bon appetit!
