Strings Of Life
This Australian cafe in West Hollywood has immediately upgraded the neighborhood’s casual lunch options. The counter-service cafe is somewhat hidden (it’s behind Rag & Bone on Melrose), but once you find it, you’ll stumble onto a sunny, quiet patio ideal for catching up with that one friend who inexplicably talks like they’re telling you a secret. The menu covers a lot of ground, but whether you’re in the mood for a Mediterranean chop salad, sprinkle-topped fairy bread, or avocado toast topped with fava beans and cornichons, everything tastes good and is ideal for picking at while your friend confesses they gave up wearing underwear in the quarantine.
