OPINION: A hidden gem located in L.A.’s Art District. The quality is superb…from drinks to entrees! They only use fresh certified locally grown produce products. A great place to pick up a book and start reading, to have a quiet cute date, or to comfortably chitchat with your new or long-time friends.
Located in Los Angeles infamous Art District, this cafe was the first ever alley eatery I have ever been to. Daily Dose Cafe is memorable from the start. In order to get to the coffee shop, you have to locate the chalkboard sign. Then head on down the little cobblestone alley. (If you spot the painted lady on the wall, then you are heading in the right direction!) You will soon see a few picnic style-rustic and umbrellas tables and chairs set up in front of the entrance.
Swing open that front door to start your eggciting adventure! Once inside, you are greeted by one of the best friendliest staffs! After my friend and I placed our order, we took our number waited outside in their alley-way seating under the stringed lights hanging above. (Note: they also have indoor seating…it is the first door you come across. It doubles as an art gallery) We were also surrounded by brick walls covered with lush green vines…creating a whimsical and tranquil ambiance.
When I was there, they also had a bookshelf full of books. It was an collaborative experiment by the Daily Dose and L.A.I.C. Book Collective to share books (take a book and/or leave a book). I thought that was pretty neat.
The staff highly recommended us 2 of the most popular entrees: the Eggcentric Sandwich (which my friend ordered) and the Margot (which I ordered). After waiting for a bit, our orders came out.
OH. MAI. GOSH. They were UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING.
MARGOT ($9): “2 scrambled eggs with feta cheese, avocado, chives, tomato, jalapeño on toasted ciabatta“. THOSE SCRAMBLED EGGS were bomb-tastic! They were soft and fluffy with such a great texture. The chives and feta cheese added a great mix of flavor with kick of spice from the jalapeño. The avocado and tomato assured me that I was eating a delicious healthy meal. All of this goodness is served on their extremely fresh soft ciabatta.
EGGCENTRIC SANDWICH ($10): “House egg salad sandwich, soft boiled eggs, tomatoes, parsley, shallots, capers, bibb lettuce, avocado, yuzu aioli, aleppo pepper, fresh cracked black pepper, chives, pickles, dijon mustard on toasted olive bread“. This is egg heaven on an olive bread. Personally, I did not like the olive bread. It was a bit hard on my teeth, however, everything else was spectacular. The ingredients were all so appetizing. This sandwich is more hearty and tangy than Margot, and would be a satisfying match with egg-lovers. There was also a simple fresh salad to act as an accompaniment to the flavorful sandwich.
We both enjoyed the service and food here. The concept of serving high-quality organic food in a garden-like environment is superb. I felt like I was at home in my backyard. 100% I highly recommend this place. It is so tempting to keep this place a secret and off the charts…but that would not be fair. So here you go! I do hope you all will be able to check out this place. If you do go, leave comments here below and let me know how it is!
