We favor the Moroccan ones: the very refreshing Fatoush salad, the outstanding Moroccan soup and the chicken Mirabella (with a plum sauce). Must go back soon to try other dishes.

Came here for a brunch and was pleasantly surprised. Table ordered salads, and burgers off the brunch menu. All portions were large, and very well seasoned. We also had their baklava and it was very well made. The service was great- pleasant atmosphere.

It saddens me to see so many great places like Cayenne Cafe close to empty in a busy season, when other average local restaurants are packed. In this case, I don't understand it. We had a wonderful meal for three, mine was the Lamb Tagine, my daughter had a penne pasta with chicken and vegetables that had very unusual flavors.... More

My husband and I frequent this restaurant. They have the BEST hummus and awesome skewers. The atmosphere is inviting and quaint decorated with a Moroccan flare. We highly recommend it!

We have been here or lunch, dinner and brunch. We have had a good time with good food each time. There pizza is my favorite here in Los Angeles. It comes with unusual toppings and man are they tasty. The pasta is good and comes with large portions. The salmon with pasta is my daughters favorite. Indoor, outdoor seating.

Delivery from Grubhub. On time. Lentil soup stayed warm/hot surprisingly. Falafel, hummus and veggie platter were delicious. Will definitely order from them again.

First impression: cute little neighborhood place with small, but nice looking indoor/outdoor seating....but wait. and wait...and wait! We went in on weekend with a reservation -were seated right away, but then waited & waited. Finally fetched the menu myself. The food was good, but the experience was definately marred by having to wait so long to place our order, then... More

I went on a Sunday afternoon to Cayenne and LOVED the food. It was not busy when we went, with perhaps 4 other patrons (2 tables) there when we were. However, not once did our waiter refill our drinks and he only checked on us once. My friend had to get up from the table in order to even get... More

Rarely do I go to a place with a promo voucher and end up being impressed enough to go back, but Cayenne Cafe really delivered. Friendly and attentive service, great brunch menu with very good portions, and relaxing, inviting decor. Will definitely be back when I'm in town!

Great food, service and ambiance. I love it even more because they are dog friendly. They even have a doggie menu. The food is fresh, tasty and moderately prices. Nice choice of wines also. The brunch is a nice experience but I prefer going during lunch hour. Its great for business meetings, dates and family outings.
