Food was fresh and tasty, service was not much besides efficient. Go for the skewers particularly the chicken or lamb.

Looking for a comfortable café, serving good food with proper plates, knives, forks etc is not easy in this neighbourhood, but this place is a gem. Airy and pristine, nicely decorated, the service was great, and my poached eggs and smoked salmon on toast, with...More

This is a great place for fresh salads and sandwiches. Sit outside on the sidewalk for great people watching too. The greek salad was delicious as was the Caprese salad. The service was wonderful too. They were constantly refilling our glasses without us having to...More

You can eat in or outside and both are very nice. The outside area is nicely done. It is not as if you are on the sidewalk for everyone to see. You have some privacy if you choose to eat out. The service is good...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
