Description: ROFL Cafe (The Republic of Laughter) is a place where food is made and served with love… we call it a happiness café. Our California bistro serves European style, conscientiously sourced fare by acclaimed chef Govind Armstrong, whose farm-fresh flavors offer the yummiest experiences. We also serve the best coffee, Intelligentsia, in an ambience that’s enveloped in playful elements to make people happy.

ROFL - crazy name - but you'd be even crazier not to eat there. This casual restaurant on Melrose in LA is the kind of restaurant every neighborhood needs - guaranteed you can find something delicious and reasonably priced on their menu. They put some unique twists on popular dishes - a tuna melt on sourdough done panini style, for example - and their burgers (ROFL Burger and Drive In Burger) are delicious. Their hand cut fries, their soups (especially their tomato basil), their house salad, even their margarita pizza - all delicious. Only complaint - we noticed that the food does not come out at the same time for everyone at the table...can make things a little awkward when you or your guest are having to wait while your hot dish has arrived and theirs hasn't! Fix this little glitch and all would be perfect!

There are plenty of good to excellent restaurants on Melrose Ave. to choose from. And the list of failed ones are much longer than those special few that not only live up to their rep but also prosper amongst the heavy competition on this uber trendy Avenue. This cafe is one of the good ones. It's got a happy happy vibe going on inside. And "Iron Chef America" contestant and Top Chef judge Govind Armstrong has created some pretty delectable menu items for this cafe. The menu is varied and includes "Intelegencia" coffee specials of $1.00 per cup on Mondays! In the meal I had, the soups are to die for. The salads were very fresh and the chicken was tender and juicy. Highly recommended!
