Hands-down one of the best patios to sit and have a cocktail or a glass of chardonnay on a beautiful Saturday or Sunday afternoon. The food is pretty tasty and the pastries are over-the-top decadent. I can't resist their onion rings and the cheese plate is pretty great. The lines can get long but we've never had a problem grabbing a table so it's worth the wait.

Great food, coffee, tea, desserts and ambiance. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The only bad thing is parking can be tough and you might have to walk a few blocks. Great date spot.

Wonderful Dining Expereince

While on a trip to LA we decided to go to The Alcove for brunch. We has a wonderful experience. Sitting outside, having great food and service. The menu is extensive and the staff is friendly. I would definitely return on future trips to LA.

love this place

I've been going to alcove for a while now and realized I should probably put a review about it ...

It's amazing. The place is chill, the food is good, and sitting outside at night with the heaters and having a slice of one of their delicious cakes with their peach tea is EXTRA good. lol

Horrible Birthday Dining Experience Please Read Entire Revie

I always go to alcove when I want to have good food and a great experience, but I have to say on the one day I really counted on that great experience they totally failed miserable. We waited 1 hour and 30 minutes after placing our order before realizing that they had forgotten our order. We brought it to their attention and they did not apologize. When the food did come they got our orders wrong. My friend asked for a medium rare burger and they gave it to him well done. My dad asked for no tomato, but he had tomato in his order. My mom asked for dressing on the side, but the dressing was all over the food and to top it off I had a BLONDE HAIR IN MY SHRIMP SALAD!! ( my family and I all have dark hair). My friend told them his burger was not medium rare and if they could bring him another burger. They said they would get a new one out right away, but after 30 minutes of waiting we went to the front and asked why it was taking so long, the manager said that he did not authorize the waitress to make a new burger and that we would not get a new burger because too many bites were taken from the original burger. We were waiting 30 minutes for the new burger, if they did not plan on making a new one they should have let us know instead of letting us wait 30 minutes on top of the hour and a half they already made us wait for our meal. I am very disappointed in this place today is my birthday and this was my BIRTHDAY LUNCH....thanks goes out to alcove for making it the WORST birthday dining experience of my life. Plus I saw the back kitchen area and it was filthy. Food all over the floor...the health department should give them a visit.

Not that impressed

I just went for dessert and coffee, actually i ended up getting hot chocolate, which was not very good I have had better hot chocolate at the chain coffee places. My boy friend ordered a slice of chocolate cheese cake, too rich and dense for my taste, I got a lemon cupcake with vanilla frosting which was kinda dry. For a place being known as a bakery again, I have had better baked good at the chain coffee place for about half the price.

Para quienes hablan espanol!

Hace un mes, para la celebración de mi cumpleaños, mi hermana y mi cuñado me invitaron a comer a un lugar que está ubicado en Los Angeles, en el área de Los Feliz. Al llegar allí, pudimos ver una larga fila para entrar al lugar, señal de que la comida debe ser bastante buena. Mientras esperábamos, nos pasaron unos enormes papeles con el menú del restaurante, donde un solo lado era destinado a desayunos y en el otro podíamos encontrar hamburguesas, sopas, ensaladas, sándwiches y postres. Fue muy difícil escoger algo, por dos razones. La principal era que todos teníamos muchaaa hambre y la segunda era que todas las descripciones de los platos sonaban muy apetitosas. Estuve entre una Cobb Salad y un sándwich de salmón. Al final me decanté por este ultimo.

Cuando llegamos al final de la fila, mi hermana nos aconsejó que viéramos en los escaparates los postres que allí se ofrecían y que de una vez escogiéramos el que queríamos, porque o sino, tendríamos que volver a hacer la fila para pedirlo. Y así lo hicimos, otra difícil decisión. Todo se veía exquisito! Escogí el cheesecake de limón (muy buena elección por cierto).

Llegó el momento de ubicarnos en la mesa y para completar el buen momento, nos destinaron una de las mejores ubicadas, cerca de los árboles y en una esquina. Se me olvidaba contar que el restaurante es un patio, con mesas debajo de árboles y muy bien decorado. Nos trajeron nuestros platos y fue una sorpresa mayor al ver las enormes porciones. Qué maravilla! Con el hambre que teníamos!!

Todo estaba riquísimo. Mi sándwich de salmón venia acompañado de papas fritas y ensalada. Una muy buena combinación. Hasta el té helado que me tomé estaba muy rico. Sobra decir que fue una buena experiencia y que pronto tendremos que volver. Recomiendo este lugar a cualquier persona que quiera pasar un buen momento y deleitarse con comida abundante y bien preparada. Los precios son bastante buenos también. Por lo congestionada que es esa calle, recomiendo usar el servicio de valet parking.

One of the Best Cafe

I have been going to the Alcove for some time. I never have a bad experience. They have never messed up my order but I am a pretty laid back person so I understand that if they were to mess it up it would be okay cause that happens with any restaurant. People who think other wise should get a grip. The atmosphere is great and the food is good. Red Velvet cheese cake please. The best coffee. Keep meaning to ask them what it is. Great first date spot or meeting spot; Casual Business dinner spot. And the staff is always in a good mood and it can get crazy there some times and you know its because they have a great team managing. Angry employees I always blame the manager. The Alcove I highly recommend.

Great lunch spot

First time I went to this place and really liked it. They serve breakfast all day which is great. The Menu is diverse. The biggest bonus is outdoor patio (which is pretty large) for nice days. Would definitely go again.
