Scout is an all-day cafe attached to Sawyer in Sunset Junction, and it’s a solid place to grab a quick lunch in Silver Lake. And we mean very quick. The bright space is about the size of a deluxe janitorial closet. There are a few tables outside on the sidewalk, and if you want to sit inside Sawyer and eat, you can do that too. But Scout is very much a to-go operation. The menu is full of things people like to eat at lunch like grain bowls and kale salads, but their sandwiches and toasts are where you should put your focus. Also their breakfast burrito is very good.
