Konbi Culver City
Much like the original lunch counter in Echo Park, this second location of Konbi on the ground floor of a gigantic office building in Culver City offers Japanese-style cafe snacks that are worth making a special trip for. Their signature sandwiches filled things with pork katsu or egg salad taste a little too close to convenience store level these days considering their price (didn’t the milk bread used to be softer?), but the good news is Konbi delivers elsewhere. We're big fans of the exceptional pastries, seasonal salads, and silky housemade ice creams—which come in fancy flavors like roasted green tea and golden raspberry.
