WHY Excellent soups, a killer tuna sandwich, good vegetarian options, peach iced tea and very nice people—in short, the perfect little lunch café.
WHAT A charming neighborhood café within spitting distance of Warner Bros., this treasure is packed at lunch but quieter for breakfast. Let Rose take your order at the counter and hope you can snag one of the half dozen tables inside or two outside. Rose’s kitchen makes delicious daily soups (including a fabulous split pea) and generous sandwiches and salads. After the lunch rush, you can linger over an espresso and dessert.
