Tujunga Village

Tujunga Village in Studio City is a wonderful place nestled between the Colfax Meadows and the Woodbridge Park Area.

There are trendy shops and great restaurants on Tujunga Ave between Moorpark and Woodbridge. Located near bustling Ventura Blvd. and seemingly a world away,Tujunga Village is nestled between the Colfax Meadows neighborhood and Woodbridge Park. A block-long stretch of Tujunga Avenue between Moorpark and Woodbridge is the heart of the Village, a charming street of mom-and-pop shops that recalls a simpler time. Take a closer look, and beneath the quaint surface are sophisticated boutiques and gourmet offerings that will please even the pickiest palate.

Start the day at Aroma Coffee and Tea Company, Tujunga Village's main gathering spot. Owner Mark Gunsky transformed a bungalow from a coffee counter to a full service restaurant serving home cooked dishes prepared with the finest local ingredients. Two giant plastic ice cream cones tell you that you've arrived at Gelato Bar and Espresso Caffe,a neighborhood favorite known for its artisanal Italian-styled gelato and premium coffee bar. Step inside, and the brightly striped walls, terracotta tiles and trickling indoor fountain will transport you to a miniature Italian piazza. The first thing you'll notice is the showcase of 24 daily selections of gelato and sorbetto flavors, which are hand-decorated with garnishes of fresh fruits, nuts and spices. Or you can pull up a chair, sip some coffee and read the paper or play chess with a neighbor.

Now that you're properly fueled up, you're ready to start browsing the eclectic shops along Tujunga Avenue. Elizabeth's Place opened in 1976, well before Tujunga Village became the trendy destination it is today. Originally a family home built in the 1940s, every room is filled with antique furniture and accessories. You can call ahead for an appointment, or drop in during the shop's limited hours. A relative youngster by comparison, the five-year-old Swag offers a unique, shabby chic selection of furniture, housewares, jewelry and much more.
