I was visiting for the weekend and wanted a nice place for my friend and I to meet my nephew and his girlfriend. This place was their suggestion and I could not have been more pleased. I had the shrimp and crab omelette. She asked what kind of bread with the order and I was so pleasantly surprised that they... More

Nice place, would have given it 5 stars but had to send my Crab Benedict back the first time because the bottom of the English muffin was solid black - but it still looked amazing. Quick reorder and apology and I was back eating. The side of fruit that came with it was fresh and delicious with exceptional raspberries, blackberries,... More

Visiting this cafe was a last minute decision following our hike to the Hollywood sign and after visiting The Griffith Observatory. I should mention that this is in very close proximity to both of this sights. Parking was a little tricky, however we were able to find ample space on the street behind the property. They do offer valet service... More

This is our favorite coffee spot, wine and cake. We absolutely love this place. Not cheap, but worth it.

We ordered 3 desserts and they were terrible. The chocolate pecan pie was so stale, that when you tried to cut a piece with your fork, it nearly flew off the table. (Reminded me of that Julia Roberts movie!) The cheesecake was over-the-top rich and the chocolate cake was nothing exceptional & was actually on the dry side. Overall, not... More

Great food and beautiful setting. Tucked into a grove of trees there is plenty of outdoor seating with a great view. Had breakfast here and returned for drinks another day. Healthy options galore!

This is one of our favorite places to have lunch. I love their veggie burger, salad and they have great fries. My partner loves their bean salad and huevous rancheros. If you've got room, you should try one of their fabulous homemade desserts, big enough for sharing with 3 people, but you might not as they serve generous portions. It's... More

The alcove is an order and eat kinda place. You walk up and place your order at the counter you are then given a number and help yourself to your own table. The servers then run the food to you. The menu is huge and the portion sizes are even bigger, one salad can easily be split between two people.... More
