Best patio in Los Feliz.

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

The food is good and hefty, their Turkey panini and salmon burger is worth the gastronomical investment. Very good quality. I am not very enthused about their ordering process of having to go to a cashier, order and pay, get a number and wait for the serving staff to deliver. It somehow goes against the grain of the ambiance of... More

Alcove Cafe is located in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles, in Hipster town. This outdoor cafe is very inviting, with its home conversion to a cafe. Inside the home you order your coffee, pastries, salads, etc. A number is given to you, then you proceed outside to the front patio and find a cozy seat under light wrapped... More

Found this place on-line. It was a bit warm in LA (90+). The food was excellent. Service was quite good but heat didn't help. I would not hold the weather against them. Great bar and very pleasant atmosphere.
