Three of us were celebrating a friend's birthday with lunch and a visit to the Griffith Observatory (just 2 miles away). We were at Alcove on a late Saturday morning and the place was busy - but we were able to order and be seated promptly. The atmosphere is beautiful, we sat outside and enjoyed the weather and people watching. The wait staff was cordial and helpful. You order your food at a counter inside, then head back outside and they find a table for you. The food came quickly, and it was amazing! Portions are huge - a side of sweet potato fries (the best we've ever had) comes in a huge bowl with 2 dipping sauces. I had the buffalo chicken wrap - the chicken was spicy and flavorful and nicely balanced with the blue cheese and cole slaw. My birthday friend had the turkey pesto panini, it too was huge and she absolutely loved it. Our other friend had a beautiful bowl of vegan black bean soup. I had a lemonade and it was excellent - obviously made with fresh lemons, nice and tart. We had a wonderful experience at Alcove and would not hesitate to return if we are ever in the area again.
