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

We've been there several times and we keep coming back. We had brunch there this past weekend. There were four of us with a wide range of appetites, so we got four different items, ranging from simple to complex - and the results were all wonderful. The eggs/omelets were perfect, the bagel and tomatoes were all fresh, as was the... More

From the entrance, you can tell this place is just awesome. They've created an atmosphere that's super warm and welcoming - you almost feel like you're eating in someone's backyard (we ate outside, duh). I had the omelet with chorizo, mushrooms and pepperjack (nom), my stepmom had a salmon egg thing, my dad had the pancakes (or maybe it was... More

Having outdoor brunch at the gardens in Alcove is a joy of California living! The garden is pretty, the people watching is great, the menu has tons of delicious choices, the food comes with a nice bowl of fresh fruit. I'm particularly impressed by the efficient system where you order at the counters, present your number to the maitre-d, get... More

Good find for a leisurely brunch. The place was pretty packed on a Sunday but the table availability seemed to match the need. This is no typical diner menu with shrimp & crab omelet and crab cake Benedict. Parking around there is tough but they do have valet. Staff is attentive and efficient and the place is able to handle... More

WOW. Lovely little place, love the atmosphere and openness of the cafe. There is seating outside, along the sides, and inside, but everything's open so no matter where one sits, should be very comfortable. The Big Bar is on the inside, really cool set up. The food was fresh and delicious. I had the salmon big ben (eggs benedict) and... More

Great to have all day breakfast as well as all other options. Service prompt, good coffee and food tasty. I and enjoyed the plentiful alfresco areas. This is a great spot to enjoy the sunny LA weather. (I absolutely loved the restrooms!) Highly recommend

I love the venue. Inside is interesting and several little "coves" you can "hide out" in but I prefer the outdoor patio. There are lots of seating opportunities outside and it's an interesting spot for people watching and celebrity spotting as well. As for the food: Oh me, oh my! If you want good coffee and dessert, this is the... More
