This is a quick guide about your hood. While we love to encourage a good “night in,” we also want to help you explore the amazing community around you. Curated by our team, this guide is full of recommendations of the best spots to eat, drink and hang out around town.
Get out there! Be sure to use #mynicheisyourniche while you’re out and about! We love featuring and gifting goodies to our Niches. ;)

If you’ve never been to Sweden but want to pretend, Bistro La Bon has super authentic Swedish meatballs on the menu that come with chive mashed potatoes, lingonberries, and the traditional sauce. It’s just like being in Malmo, but you don’t have to pay for the flight.
Good feels right when you enter. Nice, local spot where you can get any coffee drink you may need.
Well known for their pork belly tacos, which are a must try, but don’t pass up the Red Dragon roll and the shells and cheese. Since they’re small plates, you can order several things to share. Pro tip: ask for a table outside where you can enjoy some quiet and from some tables, a view of uptown.
