We came here for our lunch. A seating in outside is good idea of us. we have chosen Mini Crab Cakes and for both of us for starter. The Grilled Salmon Salad and Ginger Shrimp Salad for main dishes. They server very fast and profession. The dishes are tasty and fresh. The price is reasonable and the staff is friendly.

A nice cafe rather than restaurant . Quick service, nice and delicious meals, this is Alcove. You may spend a nice evening with your friends. At the end you will feel happy.

We sought out this location after enjoying their other resturant in Studio City. Great healthy food with lots of options. Liked the order at the bar then have it delivered. Outside dining was very pleasant and fast.

Went there for brunch on a weekday. Wait staff was nice and friendly, and their food was fresh, natural and delicious. I ordered ice tea and sandwich (sorry forgot what exactly it was) and loved them. I haven't tried their pastry but I would love to try next time.

My daughter took me here for a mother-daughter time and it was bustling with people and had a good atmosphere from the onset. This is a bakery also and there was a line to order food; then a server takes the food to you. It has a nice outside area and the bakery case was full of luscious looking food.... More

Order at the counter and they bring your food to the table. The patio is lovely with lots of shade and some secluded areas.

My adult daughter and I visited this place on a sunny Sunday afternoon for brunch. It had valet parking or you could hunt down a side street to park (make sure you look at the rules for parking there. This is LA…they give out tickets even if you are three inches into a red zone). The place was packed. Half... More

My wife and I found this place while exploring Los Feliz and what a find. We got there in the late afternoon and my wife ordered the Cobb salad and I had the Cuban sandwich. Both dishes were delicious and plenty to eat. For dessert we split the chocolate mousse cake and coffee which was likewise delicious. We sat out... More

This place had a real cool vibe walking up to the entrance with plenty of outdoor seating. Big menu with plenty to choose from. Price range is a little more than I'm use to but average for LA. I did the breakfast quesdilla and was really happy with it. Water with lemons and oranges was free which was nice. Give... More
