Topanga Canyon is well known for its old-hippie vibe and freewheeling love of nature. One of my favorite restaurants embodies this feel. The Inn of the Seventh Ray is a wonderful woodland retreat housed in what is rumored to be evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson's 1930s home.
Their organic wholistic approach to food is embodied in a wide menu that will satisfy both vegetarians like myself and ardent carnivores. The real star is the surroundings, lush grounds and views of a babbling creek, with quiet enough for conversation. Whether you're there for Sunday brunch or a candlelit meal, you'll feel as though a wedding reception could be happening in the next room.
And check out their great bookshop and new age gift store. You'll find a rare collection of offbeat interests.
The Inn of the Seventh Ray is located at 128 Old Topanga Canyon Road. For directions and hours, menus and pricing, check out their website here.
