It's hard to find a restaurant with an extensive menu and have it all be consistently delicious - but from a salmon breakfast plate, to a turkey and hummus melt, to a steak salad... anything and everything I have had at this quaint

Pros: excellent food, relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff

Whenever we are in the area we have to go to the Alcove for breakfast. They have a great menu selection at affordable prices. All of the food is delicious! I love their panini selection. We always have to pick up a huge slice of their black and white cake while we are there :). The only downfall is that it is really crowded on the weekends and sometimes hard to find a place to sit, especially if you are with a bigger group.

I have never been to this place and not waited over an hour for my food. We waited for an hour and twenty minutes for a burger and a sandwich this weekend.\r

When the food finally came, the burger was severally undercooked, ALMOST RAW.

I won't lie to you, The Alcove makes some damn good salads. And it's pretty there, a very pleasant place to have lunch. \r

However, I don't understand the prices or the service. A chopped salad with chicken isn't worth $15 at a place

Pros: Food, service, kid and family friendly, good for romatic breakfast or brunch

It's the place where I meet my friend who lives in Pasadena.

We love their menu and outdoor seating.
There is never a problem when she brings her dog, a bowl of water for the dog will be provided with a smile.

The food is good and the portions are generous.
Huge salads... almost too much for me.
Big bowls of yogurt and fruit salad...
Excellent coffee and the pastry is a story on its own.... always hard to choose !!

Nice area with more great shops around.

I hate this place. I am a neighborhood local and detest the overpriced, poor food and weird sense of having to tip for no service. I have tried and tried. I am done. Lower your price and your attitude. Scientologist welcome.

Love this place! I come here often, not only because it's convenient since it's a walking distance, the food is great too! (Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner). Mosty outdoor seating, there's probably a couple of tables inside for the tight space lover I guess.

I am always welcome here, although they do not have a menu for me, my mom always make sure she gets something that's Pepe friendly.

I'm normally walking around this area, so keep an eye out for me :p

These are possibly the BEST cupcakes in Los Angeles, certainly worth the trip and price. They come in lots of flavors, but I like the chocolate. They have other stuff too, but are not as good as the cupckaes. But beware, they are addictive!
