My daughter takes me here to show me just how much she loves this place and now I love it too. The crowd is very hip LA, artsy and akin to lower east side and Soho in NYC. Every time we are here thereis a police officer, the sheriff or someone of that caliber getting food which is a sure sign of how good it is. Had the green tea mixed with ice in a bubble tea style- so good; the Mditerranean platter and lentil soup :YumYum. Their coffee is aromatic and well brewed so grabbed a cappucino and a cookie for later in case my daughter didn't show for dinner. I have to say that I am a baker and this oatmeal raisin cookie was spectacular. Just the right consistency and crispiness ( I know my cookies). This trip I have to say they were so incredibly NICE and folded up the umbrellas and turned on the heaters outside. LA has been cold lately and this just made the whole experience, to be outside and comfortable was GREAT. Thank you to the manager.
