The Moroccan/Southern Spanish look here is so warm. Ordered some tea and a creme brûlée after dinner. This is a perfect way to spend an afternoon or cloudy day.
Great spot for breakfast to read the paper, eat a freshly baked croissant and sip on a hot tea. Relaxed vibe with lots of yummy eats to choose from!
Some would call this the ultimate hipster spot. It's got a cool, bohemian vibe, and it has outlasted most others in the area. More coffeehouse than restaurant.
Chicken soup, empanadas, and pastry desserts are all great here. Also an awesome place to chill with a pot of tea.
Best Deal in Town – Everything said below except for one unhappy person in general. The ambiance is great the food so fresh and natural good and the Hot Chocolate best ever .Very european and seems so real not at all staged. Great people watching and they have a lovely little store upstairs with many items one of a kind from all over the world. JUST LOVE IT HERE !
Great cafe – I love this place, my favorite place in all of LA!
I love all the teas, coffee, music, everything. They have interesting things in the store too.
Negative experience. – F- on customer service(bad vibe n people, arrogant and rude)
F-on prices (overpriced menu and the items for sale.
A-on turning people away, what a negative experience.
Wonderful – This place is really a great find, stepping into the doors of Casbah you feel like you are transported to a little Moroccan oasis in the heart of Silverlake. The cafe itself is decorated with a mix of French and Moroccan decor, very Casablanca-like. There is always interesting music playing, and this place has amazing salads and coffee and a nice little store upstairs selling Moroccan items.
With a fading blue paint job, ivy-colored walls and perfectly messy decor, this lived-in boutique cafe caters to Silver Lake bohemanians and the local stroller bunch. – In Short
Aspiring artists and bed-headed neighborhood-types can be found discussing the latest indie flick or alt-rock album on the small plant-lined outdoor patio, or browsing through the North African clothing, linens and curtains inside. Patrons nibble on dolmas and hummus, as well as French-inspired menu items like grilled Swiss cheese and ham on sourdough, tuna salad and a quiche of the day. Dessert consists of fruit tarts, cheeses and cakes.
Tea and Chocolate Molten Lava Cake, YUM – Amazing tea's, great dessert's. Food is a little pricey. Nice place to escape the hussel and bussel. Beautiful decor and if you can afford it lovely finds in their store.
Amazing Little Parisian Cafe – I went to this place on a whim one day, and have become a regular ever since. The workers are sweet, everything on the menu is amazing, their coffee is the best I've had in LA, and the place is lovely. Things can be high priced, ($9 salad?) but it's definitely all in the quality. I've heard those dishes are amazing but I just can't afford them. The less pricey items are still great: "pizza," bagels (with tons of cream cheese and tomatoes), brioche (my favorite!). You can definitely have a great cafe experience for less than $10.
best cafe in L.A -- the best anywhere really – This is the best cafe in Los Angeles. I come here all the time and so I really can say I love it. The teas are great no where inL.A can you find as diverse amounts of tea ,From Mate in a traditional gourd to Puerh tea and the great standbye of Darjeeling. I love the food many salads, pita sandwhiches little tostados apricots and dates you cannot find these things in Peets coffee etc. The place is beautiful, fresh flowers lovely music . . really no where like it in L>A great bagels, salmonplates and yogurt with fresh fruit
Interesting! Best Mate in LA – I liked the place.
I am not a fan of chains of cafes and restaurants.
Here I feel in a place that could still be like those described in South America in the 19th century called pulperias, where outside you could still here people betting on running quadreras...
Leon Pallieres would have drawn the manager!!
Loved the food I had, would have prefered someone cebando my mates but for Los Angeles in the 21st century... I'd rather go this way than Starbucks!
