Just up the block from Alcove’s chaotic patio is Mustard Seed - a casual sidewalk cafe with zero waits and a surprisingly strong menu. Their chopped salad is massive and good for two meals and their turkey burger won’t make you sad either. They’re only open till 4:30pm every day, but the bonus is they serve breakfast till close.

In a city increasingly dominated by mega-restaurants from other cities, All Time is a Los Feliz cafe that feels like an LA original.
Messhall Kitchen has all the touchstones of the camp experience: an all wood, cabin-like décor, a menu full of comfort foods, and their logo, a tree, can be found everywhere down to the plates. It also has all the touchstones of a damn good restaurant.
