Great ambiance in this bar/bakery/coffee shop. Try the cheesecakes. Sit in the heated patio, very relaxing and nicely decorated.

I love their breakfast, I love their bakery and their lattes are very good. They have a rich menu and the patio has really nice seatings. Street parking only or valet on weekends. Highly recommend this place if you're in Los Feliz

We met up with a friend here for breakfast while staying in L.A. I'd recommend an early breakfast, because about an hour after we arrived, the place was packed. One of the downsides is there is a lack of parking. We had to park a few blocks away on a residential street. The food was good and there was quite... More

Situated on a crowded road with no parking nearby, at least we had difficulty and parked where we shouldn't! Bar person barked out questions so fast that I couldn't understand them, felt very rushed as if we were in the way. Chose to take away. Food plentiful but did not put the coffee ordered in and found a piece of... More

Went here with coworkers and fell in LOVE. The decor, the ambiance, the service, the food, even the bathroom is beautiful!! The best eggs benedict ever, great coffee, quick service, the desserts looked amazing but I was too full to have one. They had one called the red velvet ding dong - a chocolate covered red velvet cake in the... More

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
