After over 30 years in northeast Los angeles I've tried everything including the taco trucks. Four Cafe has the most delicious food around, featuring a seasonal menu with something for everyone--even vegans. The generous salads come in 2 sizes and one can add meat or tofu; various sandwiches such as a veggie-burger come on fantastic bread; the daily soup specials are lovely, there's great mac-n-cheese and the baked goodies are worthy of a fine bakery. Don't forget their brunch menu offered on the weekends at which I'm hooked on the fried egg sandwich with cheese and arugula that comes with fried potatoes as good as I've ever eaten.
What sets this place apart is how evolved and well thought out the dishes are, really gorgeously seasoned. Whatever you get is going to have a different edge and flavor that one finds elsewhere. For example, the subtlety dressed chickpea side salad with couscous has currants and pistachios in it, making it extraordinary and memorable.
The service is efficient and friendly, prices reasonable (egg sandwich with potatoes--7 bucks) and families with kids seem to be very content here. Highly recommended.
