This is a popular deli/cafe with good food and coffee. It is open and bright and clean and a nice place to sit. There is no table service, however. If you are okay ordering cafeteria-style, you will enjoy the place. Lunch or breakfast.

That's a great way to start. The bacon wrapped fig is delicious. I had the salmon for dinner and the carrot & dill soup! Very nice and VERY friendly!

Nicely decorated restaurant with an atmosphere that radiates energetic serenity and classiness, yet casual and unpretentious. Service is warm, friendly and efficient. Food can be a little slow (maybe because we went there at 3:15 pm, which is close to their afternoon siesta closure between 4:00 - 5:00 pm). Food price was fair considering the neighborhood of Toluca Lake. Great... More

I must have passed this restaurant a million times and never took notice. The atmosphere is so energetic and so nicely decorated. We started our meal with the Hummus trio and were so happy. Three different flavors and all excellent. Both of the sandwiches we ordered were wonderful - mine a spicy chicken. Yummy! Mine included a fresh and delicious... More

My TripAdvisor app told me that this was the #1 restaurant in Toluca Lake and it just happened to be on our way to the 134 freeway so we decided to give it a try. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed our lunch thoroughly. The decor is somewhat "shabby chic" and seating is casual. The restaurant is a bit... More

We got in late on our first night of travel and after being up and going for 14 hours and finally arriving at our hotel for check in we immediately went to this restaurant due to its location but fell in love with the environment and food after just a few minutes. The bakery was delicious and returned the next... More

Busy, Fun Atmosphere with Good Service. Casual as well as Delicious too. Order at register and have a view of different salads etc while in line. Pick your beverage to go with one of the many healthy sandwiches/plates. Your order is served to your table. Out of our group of 4, ALL Agreed, We Would return!

nice little french-ish cafe with tasty salad and sandwich choices. nice for a daytime brunch or light lunch. we had salad assortments (kale, quinoa - both tasty). enjoyed a glass of wine with meal, all the better. close to Tangerine Hotel. obvious a local favorite, lots of people talking and enjoying the dining.

We had a great experience with friends and co workers while on our business trip. I ordered the hanger steak which was perfectly cooked. The group had the hummus sample which was fabulous too. Love the artichoke hummus what a novel concept. The atmosphere is beautiful, the staff delightful and the food amazing.

With the feel of Joan's on Third this fantastic Toluca Lake restaurant is one of the best places for lunch in the area. The food is top quality and the desserts are second to none. They could add some items in their case to give it a little variety, but overall this is a perfect establishment.
