For French and Mexican cuisine it's very good. Not really fine dining, but for two people you're likely to spend $50 or more. They do some great things with breakfast and with lunch. Not a lot to say here but that the menu is a novella, and that you can sit out on the sidewalk in the shade and enjoy... More

Wonderful food. Great salads, omelettes, burgers, etc. Among our favorites: Atomic burger, one yolk vegetable omelette, brussels sprouts salad, salad with brie, prosciutto and grapes, croque monsieur, avocado with tuna and egg salads, broccoli and apple salad, thyme-dusted fries. The pastries are excellent and so is the coffee. Service is not quick and there is often a crowd, but this... More

Cafe Midi never disappoints. With its multitude of offerings on the menu, there's something for everybody. Portions are large and everything is fresh and tasty. Don't forget the desserts!

Beautiful decor, wonderful food, in a very appealing part of Los Angeles. Street parking is easy, and the area is filled with good shopping (i.e., photo and art galleries, antique and clothing stores, etc.). Cafe Midi sells a wide range of items for the home - for the kitchen, for the bedroom, for the patio. Much more than a restaurant,... More

The Lunch here was Very Very good. My husband got the blackened chicken with bacon croques and I got the Edouards Sirloin Burger. That was probably the best burger I have ever had. Definitely worth the calories! The menu is somewhat overwhelming so I had the waitress point out their star items. The only problem was the loooooooong wait time.... More

Had lunch there with my sister and was charmed by the owner, our server and all the wait staff. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere is so much fun. Tiny little Cafe, great food and service, then a browse through the most beautiful treasures of all sorts in the Maison Midi. A lovely experience!

This is a small restaurant connected to American Rag that is worth a special trip. With maybe ten seats at the counter and a half dozen small tables, it's perfect for singles and couples. The food - salads, sandwiches, omelets - is terrific. No alcohol is served. There are also tables on the street, perfect for people-watching, and the people... More
