“Friendly and caring service from the front desk staff through the service providers to the owner. Awesome massages! New upgraded location includes a sauna which is a great service to add pre or post massage. Great Services at great prices!” – Ann D., Orange County Hot List
"Long, long overdue day of pampering for myself at CloudMover! Had a Swedish massage with Lilian and a custom facial with Ines and both were FANTASTIC. I also did the infrared sauna (wish I had one at home)...such a great way to relax! I immediately booked my next appointment, everyone there is friendly and warm. CloudMover is a gem in Huntington Beach!" Carie G., Yelp
Mama’s Place is a child friendly children's boutique selling a variety of high quality children's clothing, toys and accessories including cloth diapering supplies and alternative natural health products. They also carry items fashioned by local stay at home Moms and Dads in the Huntington Beach area producing quality baby and children's goods. Kirsten Kohl was inspired by the amazing local talent that resides in HB and the surrounding areas, she wanted to have a place to showcase that talent locally where people could go and see it rather than having to buy it all online. Kirsten Kohl says, "Huntington Beach has an unusually strong community that have strong family values and love where we live." She created Mama's Place HB based on her experience as a mom to four children ranging from two to eight and a local resident of Huntington Beach. She is a believer in quality clothing for children, and a supporter of cloth diapering and natural alternatives to children's health issues.
As a stay at home mom, she has witnessed the social limitations and physical restrictions of online shopping for children's items, or shopping in non child friendly stores. Kirsten Kohl believes that stores who are aiming at the younger market should accommodate those children and their parents in a child friendly way. She is a transplant from the UK, a trained Accountant, previous Chief Financial Officer and mother to four amazing children. 9510 Hamilton Ave Huntington Beach, CA
"Super friendly staff, area for kids to play in, great products, super clean inside. You can easily fit a double stroller in the store. Staff has a ton of knowledge on all the products in the store." Kevin C., Yelp
"A great place to hang out with other kid people in the community. This store also supports other local small businesses by selling unique etsy items in their store. They have support groups, a fun play area and how to classes for everything imaginable. I also love that they only sell earth friendly toys, baby supplies and clothes! They even sell gently used cloth diapers. Great store! Can't wait to become a regular here with my 3 year old twins. Thanks for making me and my boys feel so at home today, Tiffany!" Liz S., Yelp
Monkey House Cafe
It’s a Jungle Out There! Escape the daily grind and swing into the Monkey House Café. A whole new adventure in cafes is now available to residents and visitors to Huntington Beach. In the winter of 2006, Monkey House Café opened its doors under entrepreneurs of Angeli Poon, her daughter, Rochelle and Rochelle’s husband, Dan. The family owned and run operation brings the trio’s complementary career experiences together: Angeli, providing a strong business background in hotel management, digital media advertising, retail and designing, Rochelle, holding a degree in Restaurant Management and Culinary Art from the University of Nevada and Dan, being a restaurateur with years of experience in the food industry.
The idea for the café developed out of love and passion for a warm and cozy place for everyone to come and hang out with good coffee, delicious snacks, great foods and of course, Rochelle’s love of monkeys.
When it comes to feeding time, Monkey House Café doesn’t monkey around. Whether it’s an expertly crafted latte or cappuccino, a freshly blended fruit smoothie, one of our many specialty sandwiches or scrumptious desserts, the House has you covered and rest assured that this isn’t your ordinary monkey business!
18862 Beach Blvd. #101 Huntington Beach, California 92648 Monkey House Café is located on Beach Boulevard, between the streets of Ellis and Garfield.
"The Monkey House Cafe is the kind of place where you are always greeted with a smile and everyone knows your name." Tiffany M., Yelp
Slater’s 50/50 was founded in 2009 in Anaheim Hills, California by Scott Slater, a SoCal native with a passion for burgers, bacon and craft beer and a disdain for the boring. Inspired by the belief that bacon is meat candy, Scott created the original 50/50 patty– made of 50% ground bacon and 50% ground beef – and a menu full of amplified burgers and indulgent dishes to pair with one of the most mind-blowing selections of local and regional craft beer available on tap anywhere.
8082 Adams Ave Huntington Beach, CA 92646
"Slater's 50/50 is always good, you can make your own burger or choose from one of their creations. I think Slater's is a great go to burger joint." Gabby K., Yelp
Snow Monster's CFO and co-founder, Kathy D. Vu lives in Huntington Beach and loves everything about this city—the people, the vibes, the beaches. Kathy says, "With every location that my business partner and I choose for Snow Monster, we keep the community in the forefront of our minds. We are passionate about creating community hangout spots that are down-to-earth and serve high-quality, unique desserts. With that intention, it was a natural fit for us to open a location in Huntington Beach in the most unassuming location where we hope to have the most impact. The Huntington Beach location also doubles as our research and development lab where we are constantly experimenting on new dessert innovations."
Snow Monster is known for their small-batch brewed teas served in take-home reusable jars. Kathy D. Vu says, "Our thai tea is our bestselling drink with tea leaves imported straight from the source in Thailand. We serve it traditionally with half and half or we can create an amazing vegan version with almond milk. Our giant macarons are baked in-house daily in an array of flavors such as fruity pebbles, pistachio, brown sugar caramel, and churro and assembled per order with your choice of ice cream."
