The Village At Sherman Oaks

The Village At Sherman Oaks Map: The Village at Sherman Oaks is a wonderful place to start a day of shopping and dining. The Village at Sherman Oaks is home to an array of small boutiques and plazas, specialty shops and service providers. There is the “Three Dog Bakery” where I buy my dogs birthdays biscuits, “Cafe Unforgettable Cakes” where I buy my birthday biscuits, ANAJAK THAI which, in my opinion, is the best Thai food in The Valley. On a sunny Sherman Oaks day it is a nice stroll from Cedros Avenue to Van Nuys Blvd. Stop at The “PINEAPPLE HILL SALOON” and chat it up at the bar and order a veggie burger (my fave).
