“A food gem in the Jewelry district”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Tulip cafe, located in St Vincent court in the Jewelry district of Los Angeles is a precious asset. Look for the green and white striped awning at the exterior. Chef Kachin is a jovial and warm personality who made us feel most welcome. First we were served with a Mediteranean salad of tomatoes, onions and parsley. Our main course of salmon sitting on top of mussels and clams and cooked in wine, was yummy. The steak was topped with a cream sauce of mushroom and spinach - another treat!

“Tasty food in a cute downtown location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

This little cafe is located on St. Vincent Court. At first glance, it appears to be an alley. But, instead, it is a cute little dead end street that looks like you would find in Europe. The Tulip Cafe is located at the end of the court. It is small with about 10 tables inside and a couple outside. The service is efficient and friendly and the food is delicious.

I wanted falafel. The waitress recommended the grilled vegetable platter which had falafel plus very tasty grilled eggplant, zucchini, summer squash and tomato slices. Also included was a delicious hummus, salad consisting of chopped tomato, cucumber, red onion and white beans. Two pita breads, also. A ton of food for lunch! My husband had the gyro sandwich which he liked a great deal. However, after seeing some of the beautiful dishes coming out of the kitchen, he wished he'd tried one of their fish dishes.

To me, a good sign that you are eating authentic food is when the other patrons are from that country. There were at least three parties there at lunch who were speaking Greek. Pretty good sign, if you ask me!
