Mom arrived in LA today and what better way to get in the groove of things than by a late lunch at Alcove Cafe and Bakery in Los Feliz?
Alcove is one of my favorite cafes. It makes me think of my first day in Los Angeles visiting Merc. I love the patio, pastries and their Caesar with curried tofu is to die for. From reading Yelp reviews and my own personal experience, the patio can be pretty packed. We ate around 4:30 and had no trouble finding a seat. Just some advice for future reference.
Alcove has great food, reasonable prices and ambiance perfect for a first casual date. Did I mention they have an adorable bar too? Nothing like a Caesar and Sangria on a Saturday evening.
Alcove is located near Hillhurst and Franklin with hours of operation between 6 AM and 12 AM, depending on the day.
If you’re worried about bikini season, stick with tofu and stay away from the pastry display. Just looking at it I felt my butt get bigger! Is there a low-fat version of their red velvet cupcake!?
