After months of anticipation…Sycamore Kitchen is open on La Brea. I had been seeing a lot of my food friends rave about it and couldn’t wait to check it out myself. Its been open about two weeks now, and it was worth the wait. What a great spot!
Karen and Quinn Hatfield are well known within the City of Angels, and this is their new cafe spot located on La Brea (across from Tinga). We got there around 4:30pm which was a little sad because they close at 5, but as we ordered pastries we were told that they were half price since it was almost closing time. Score! So these are the pastries we all got:
Essentially we filled up this huge box. All the pastries looked amazing and I can’t wait to go back and try more.
Karen Hatfield is a pastry chef so of course all of her creations are standouts.
I never used to like cookies much, but lately I have come across some really amazing cookies, and this berries and cream cookie was no exception! Love.
Since it is a cafe, we were able to order some sandwiches. I opted for the salmon toast and was amazed by how good it was. I haven’t stopped thinking about it since Monday. In fact I’m planning on going back tomorrow just to have it again. It was THAT good.
I was so happy to see that they serve Stumptown Cold Brew! I’m having that next time, but on Monday I wanted a nice cold Medio Litro Mexican Coke.
This place is such a win for my beloved City of Angels. Such a nice space, simple, great fresh food and pastries. This is definitely one of my new favorite spots.
