Topanga Canyon

Establishment neighborhood
Endless Color
123 S Topanga Canyon Blvd., Topanga Canyon
This local pizza spot manages to honor the canyon’s offbeat vibe and hit the mark on modern design and menu (walk in to grab your order and you’re in a cool wine-cave-meets-Wonka gallery set up for social distancing). Endless Color opened during the pandemic, and it’s the perfect spot to pick up pizza, salad, and sides for dinner or after hiking Tuna Canyon. The menu has all the classics, plus swaps for the masochist who demands spinach on their slice (the Super Greens is a goop staff fav), and every pie can be made with gluten-free crust, no cheese, or for the lactose-sensitive, with sheep and goat cheese. Picking up your order gives you the opportunity to check out the wine selection, which has something for everyone (natural-wine lovers will be particularly elated). Endless Color is takeout only for the time being, but the bougainvillea-draped outdoor seating setup definitely sparks dreamy visions of future pie-with-friends outings.
The Well Refill
120 S Topanga Canyon Blvd., Topanga Canyon
Not only is this the prettiest low-waste refill store we’ve ever seen; it’s decidedly low-key. Tucked in Pine Tree Circle in Topanga, the Well is an easy trip from Malibu, the Westside, or the Valley. You’re bound to be one of just a couple (if that) of patrons in the store, making it an incredible place to pick up goods for keeping a clean home. The shop carries natural brands in bulk, so you can bring your own containers (it sells gorgeous options to get you started as well) and refill your body care, laundry soap, and household cleaners. To minimize points of contact during the pandemic, staff does the refilling rather than customers. Also on offer are a collection of vintage housewares and clothing, carefully selected and beautifully curated, plus plenty of storage options and home goods for transitioning to a low-waste lifestyle. Pro tip: Have random glass jars hanging around? Drop them off and rest easy knowing they’ll be repurposed.
