The benefits of living at Qwil apartments for rent in Larchmont vary. In addition to the panoramic views, the location is unbeatable. Along with the boutique shops and cafes on Larchmont Village, the famous Melrose Avenue is just around the corner. 

Dining along Melrose


Melrose is a go-to spot for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Our top three favorites include:


Calling all vegans! Of all the vegan restaurants in LA, Crossroads may very well be the best. Highlights on their menu include the chopped kale salad, artichoke oysters, and “crab cakes.” In addition to the cuisine, they have a great cocktail menu. 

Blu Jam Cafe

The ultimate brunch spot is just minutes away from your apartments for rent in Larchmont. Be prepared to wait in line at Blu Jam Cafe. It will all be worth it though, especially when it comes to their eggs benedict. 

Urth Caffe

Up next is Urth Caffe, whose focus is organic coffee, tea, and vegan desserts. Our favorite item on the menu is the organic green tea on ice with boba.

Shopping along Melrose

Shopping is a bit different these days. Most of us are shopping online, but many stores do provide curbside pick-up. Even if you aren’t looking to shop, we all could use a little window shopping in our lives. The stores along Melrose are plenty, but our favorites are: 


High-end clothing boutique selling new, gently used & vintage women’s apparel, shoes, and accessories. 

The RealReal

Authenticated luxury consignment featuring clothes from high-end brands like Chanel and Gucci. 

American Vintage

Another vintage clothing store that is a bit more affordable than Wasteland. That is only the beginning! To explore all that Melrose has to offer both in shopping and dining, click here

Photogenic Spots along Melrose


LA is always an excellent backdrop for an Instagram photo. With all the options available to you, we recommend starting at two of the most iconic spots along Melrose. 

Made in LA mural

There are a handful of murals all around LA that are known for being Instagram backdrops. However, Melrose features some of the most famous ones. Starting with the Made in LA mural on the side of the Cisco Home Furnishing Shop. 

Paul Smith Pink Wall

This wall/mural should also ring a bell. This monochromatic fire pink wall stands out from many of the shops along Melrose. You also know you’re there when you see a line of people waiting to take a photo in front of it. 


Keep in mind that Melrose is just around the corner from your luxury apartments for rent in LA, but you will have to drive to some of these hot spots. Nonetheless, the drive won’t be long at all.
