We always order the egg benedicts for breakfast - it comes with a small bowl of awesomely great fresh fruit - i love the ambiance of the outdoor patio - sometimes you will see a celebrity but the food and service are outstanding - my most favorite place of all - this is in Los Feliz on Hillhurst Avenue.

What a fun place. We came here not once but twice while staying in Los Angeles, during a short vacation. We came across it by chance while walking around in the Los Feliz neighborhood. It was one of those moments when you realize you are on vacation, you have only had a late breakfast, forgot about lunch and suddenly it's... More

We started with the spicy Bloody Mary which were good. I had the carnitas omelette so good. Truffle fries were so tasty. This place is crowed so make sure you are not gonna faint to eat. They said they are first come first serve. No reservations. Service was great especially considering how busy they were. We sat outside and enjoyed... More

Four of us stopped in for drinks and cheese prior to going to the movies. The cheese platter for 4 was enormous (we wound up taking some home) and tasty. The platter also included fresh and dried fruit as well as candied nuts. Drinks were very good and the service was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely go back... More

Our daughter took us to one of her favorite spots, the Alcove Café, which is a very popular place. Parking in the area is limited so we valeted the car. Line was long, but worth the wait. Found a great table on the patio. Enjoyed the nice weather while we waited for our order. Food was very good, portions were... More

We had the country breakfast and the florentine crepes. Both pretty yummy. The hot chocolate was really good,I loved the whip cream and the huge cup. Fun setting too.

Went here after hiking across Hollywood Hills in need of some good grub and stumbled across this place. Pilsner was on happy hour (bonus!) and the food was great

I love dropping in for a cupcake or the delicious buffalo chicken wrap. The omelets are large and delicious. I'm particular on how my toast is done but the staff always smiles when I send the toast back for one more round under the heat. And speaking of staff... Alcove has some of the nicest, cutest staff around. They are... More

If I could, I would come here every day. This place is like a magical garden hideaway with the cozy patio nestled under trees. I absolutely adore the ambiance of the patio! I have tried their coffee, and I would stick to simpler coffee drinks here. Their vanilla latte was delightful! I have never tried a dish I didn't like... More

Oh boy! If you go to LA looking for "American" portions, look no further than Alcove on Hillhurst. Tucked away in a largely residential area of Hollywood, this place is a gem! The sweet potato fries are to die for, and it's worth noting that a single portion will probably serve two. Fantastic atmosphere, really welcoming.
