Great place to have breakfast in LA

Lovely place to have breakfast in Los Angeles. Pancakes and omellette are delicious, as well as smoothies.

I visit my son and family in Los Felez several times a year. We enjoy food, service, and outside atmosphere at Alcove. Parking can be a problem but the do have valet. Easy for anyone staying in Los Felez as it is within easy waking distance. Not a big space so go early for breakfest. Lunch and dinner available. You... More

Open from 6am-1am. We went on a Thursday after a trip to Griffiths park observatory. It was about 2-3 miles from it. A great late night hang out with plenty of seating for big groups. They have a great unique menu for everyone. Ordered: Lemon cake, lava cake, lava cake crunch, mint tea, chamomile tea, Italian blackberry soda, ceviche, mini... More

The place is adorable...inside and out. The dessert case is a jewel box. I have had pretty decent sandwiches and breakfast here. The desserts are definitely pre-fab and some are pretty good, but, all are obscenely portioned and median priced . Definitely more filler than flavor, for the most part...but, if you're looking for a sugar fix, this works just... More

There is always a line, and it's worth the wait. Yummy food and their coffee drinks and lattes are delicious. Love their outdoor seating area. Go in order the food and they'll bring the food to your table. Try their pastries😉

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 side yard and food is brought... 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.
