We are a group that loves our brunch and we had a fantastic one here. We made a reservation, as it tends to get busy, and were on a pretty tight schedule. Our waitress took great care of us and we were in and out in no time.

We went to this restaurant based off of the concierge's recommendation. The food was all excellent. The pizza was some of the best pizza I have had, and it reminded me of the pizza from the Amalfi coast. The portabella fries were amazing and unique. The chocolate shuffle a must. It seems like a fun LA restaurant, and the prices... More

This place was recommended to us by a sales associate at a nearby store, and we were glad we went. We had what is probably the best pizza in town! The secret is the sauce! Very trendy place also. Plus, you can grab an amazing dessert at their bakery on the way out. Their macaroons are amazing!

The only time I've ever eaten a macaron, it was not tasty. Because of that, I was somewhat apprehensive to order any. However, these were so beautiful, and I thought how could they be bad if they look that good! They were divine! We had the salted caramel, Earl Grey, and praline ones. Also, we ordered a beignet and personal... More

The restaurant was great!!! The food is delicious. It was lively and fun. I had a drink at the bar and the bartender was great. He made me a perfect cocktail. I can't wait to go back and have the chocolate souffle and the other fabulous desserts. I promise I will be back when I am not dieting.

Just down the street from my hotel, popped my head in becasue I could see their macaron display, but found an extensive selection of pastries and desserts. High-quality, appropriately priced, and very well packed for travel. They also have some very attractive gift boxes.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
