Pine & Crane DTLA review image

Pine & Crane DTLA

The DTLA location of Pine & Crane is the kind of all-day cafe that feels like you can pop into for basically any occasion, from a mellow weekend brunch to a hectic weeknight dinner where you wolf down a bowl of dumplings in 60 seconds flat. The casual, open-air space feels like a supremely well-appointed artist’s workshop. You can stroll right up to the counter at 8am to order your Taiwanese small plates, and seat yourself in the comfortable dining room or covered patio. After 11am, the brunch menu expands to include more noodle dishes, dumplings, and a full list of cocktails. The only thing that could distract you from the chive and egg pockets, pan-fried pork buns, and daikon rice cakes spread out before you is that brown labradoodle running in the park next to the restaurant.
