My first job was working at La Grande Orange. I loved working there especially because they always sent me home with a huge box of leftover cookies and muffins from the day. The downside was I gained about 10 pounds from it! LGO is a one of a kind breakfast, lunch and dinner spot. There are 2 parts to it, the grocery store which has gourmet cheeses, breads, wines and adorable gifty things. There you place your order and can take it to go or walk over to the pizzeria tables and enjoy your food. After 5PM the pizzeria is a full service restaurant where you can enjoy homemade pizzas, the best hamburger in town, and delicious salads. Everything- and I mean everything is good off the menu. LGO is located off 40th Street and Campbell in Phoenix, Arizona. Luckily there is one in Santa Monica!
