Oh did I mention how slow their service is. Seriously I'd fire the staff if I owned this place. The line wasn't even that long and there was plenty of staff inside.

Driving up the Hollywood hills towards Griffith Observatory on a hot day and this cafe pops up on the side of the road under the trees. Looks nice and is worth a stop. Good coffee, great pies (the slice is big). The atmosphere relaxes you...More
