Hopping busy

This is a "hopping place" busy and bustling. Parking is handled well in this busy street by their valets. I don't want to focus on the drop off and finding a parking place so I appreciated this. You order at the counter inside the cramped interior but move outside to the spacious courtyard and... read more

Good food and service! You literally walk up and wait in line and can review the menu. Once you pay, order is brought to the table. The seating outside is a little cramped, but the weather was amazing so no real complaints! GREAT service :)

This is great place. Though very hip and Hollywood it still maintains that neighborhood vibe. Lately, I have been enjoying the fine beverages hand crafted at the bar. Check out the specials that are posted daily.

This is a casual restaurant where you place your order and then wait at a table for the server to bring it. The food is fresh, tasty, the menu varied and they are willing to accommodate to dietary needs. The service is great. The only problem is getting a table at times since the restaurant is so popular!

A local favorite in MY OWN neighborhood. Its relaxed and there is no hurry here....just avoid the weekend brunch hours as it gets a bit of a line...also great for just desert and a tea or coffee.

My wife guided me to the Alcove during a recent trip to Los Angeles, noting that it received high rankings for brunch/breakfast food. It certainly lived up to its ranking. I ordered a breakfast burrito which was very good, except for one small detail. I ordered the burrito with no beans, which may have prompted them to fill the burrito... More

Situated in a bungalow in Los Feliz, the Alcove has a wonderful ambience for a relaxing and delicious meal. My husband and I went for breakfast on our most recent trip to LA and we were not disappointed. We ordered the Breakfast Panini and Breakfast Burrito. The portions are quite big and we could have easily shared. We sat in... More

This place is SO cute! I love the patio! I went with a friend after a long hike and we decided to indulge. I ordered the chicken, peanut satay salad, AND a lemon cupcake. :) My friend ordered a piece of buttercream cake, and it was as big as my head! The cute boy behind the counter warmed it up.... More

My daughter and I happened upon it last weekend and decided to go in. Oh my gosh, what a surprise!The food was off the hook! I had the best chopped salad, ever. Fresh ingredients, flavor, and great service. My daughter had the blackened Salmon Tacos. Extraordinary! They were packed and now I know why. Will go back very soon.

We went on a Friday night -- I ordered the Brie & Apple focaccia sandwich and side salad. It's easy to order...you do so at the counter and they give you a number on a stick to put on your table and the waiter finds you. Super easy. The outdoor and indoor vibe was hipsterish and cool. The sandwich was... More
