1. Redemption Foods 1253 Vine Street Ste. 8, Los Angeles, CA 90038

Tucked away in the back of a Hollywood mini-mall, Redemption Foods is a cafe space with concrete tables, tiled walls, and a fascinating twist: it's run by a non-profit that helps ex-cons enter the workforce when they get out of jail, meaning all the employees've done time in prison. Redemption Foods has a simple philosophy that breaking bread together is a way to cure all of society's ails (and not over each other's heads!)
