A beautiful store with excellent service, and the cafe has wonderful food with excellent service, all fairly priced, all done with flair and attention to detail. Difficult on street parking, but they do have a parking lot.

Well, it has the flair of frenchness... Much of it is really french... Tastes greatly and is more than affordable. Just too bad that we are in L.A. And vegetables are not as tasty as they would in France. However ambience is fantastic, people are great... So, go for it!!!!

I don't think u have had anything I have not liked here. The latest the Cheesiest pasta I ever had. The veggie burger was tasty supervising. I have had the Dover Sol and always fantastic. The hamburger with blue cheese is excellent. The place is always happening and it looks like you are in Paris. The owner is always friendly.... More

For French and Mexican cuisine it's very good. Not really fine dining, but for two people you're likely to spend $50 or more. They do some great things with breakfast and with lunch. Not a lot to say here but that the menu is a novella, and that you can sit out on the sidewalk in the shade and enjoy... More

Wonderful food. Great salads, omelettes, burgers, etc. Among our favorites: Atomic burger, one yolk vegetable omelette, brussels sprouts salad, salad with brie, prosciutto and grapes, croque monsieur, avocado with tuna and egg salads, broccoli and apple salad, thyme-dusted fries. The pastries are excellent and so is the coffee. Service is not quick and there is often a crowd, but this... More

Cafe Midi never disappoints. With its multitude of offerings on the menu, there's something for everybody. Portions are large and everything is fresh and tasty. Don't forget the desserts!

Beautiful decor, wonderful food, in a very appealing part of Los Angeles. Street parking is easy, and the area is filled with good shopping (i.e., photo and art galleries, antique and clothing stores, etc.). Cafe Midi sells a wide range of items for the home - for the kitchen, for the bedroom, for the patio. Much more than a restaurant,... More
