This was a great venue for an eclectic group of people with different tastes, ie vegan, vegetarian etc. It had a great variety of food with large servings. I love the ability to eat outdoors. It provides a great ambiance. Their vegan split pea soup was the best I've ever had! Their style of ordering and serviing is also very... More

Second time enjoying a meal at the Alcove. Orders at done at the counter and you carry your beverage to the table, my least favourite part of the experience. However, the meals are very good and gluten free options are available. Their gluten free toast is quite good and it can be specially ordered to accompany your meal. I had... More

We were taken here for lunch by a friend when we visited Los Feliz recently. You order inside in the bar area and then found a table for six in the shade of a tree in the front garden Perfect setting and our salads etc were then bought out to us. All very good and excellent service.

Mmmmmmmm. That's what I think of when I think of the Alcove. It's just warm, kitschy, inviting and, even though it's in a busy neighborhood, it feels very private and relaxing. Almost like being at home. The perfect way to start the day - or take a break from the insanity of L.A. (but I love that city!). The service... More

Decided to eat here after reading a review; glad I did. My egg white omelet was delicious. As my friend and I sat on the patio, we enjoyed the aromas from all the fabulous foods that were being served around us. This place is great! We saw Taylor Hawkins from the Foo Fighters, which was an added bonus. The only... More

This was our third visit to the Alcove, although it has been a couple years since our last visit. We stopped here for breakfast at 8:00 AM and it is the first time it was not packed. When we first arrived the staff was busy opening up, hosing off outdoor tables and the patio, lining up their delicious pastries, but... More
