We've eaten here twice. Bakery/cafe good for early start and if you're shopping at the mens stores along La Brea, good for a quick lunch. Space is bright and airy. We'd go back. Jim - Red Maps.

I was introduced to this fun outdoor dining place, on Le Brea, by a "local". You pass through a high end cafeteria style line, being tempted along the way. We placed our lunch order of Barbacoa Tacos and the Italian Chop salad, and both of...More
