Euro Pane

Euro Pane

WHY Breakfast croissants that are the best for many miles, and fab lunchtime sandwiches: egg salad, chicken salad and an amazing BLAT (bacon, lettuce, avocado and tomato). Excellent coffee, too. WHAT Sumi Chang’s extraordinary bakeries are also swell places for breakfast and lunch, especially the new location, with its huge pecan communal table and large [...]

Pie ‘n Burger

Pie ‘n Burger

WHY Cheeseburgers and peach pie with vanilla ice cream. WHAT Want to make your guests happy without spending a fortune? Serve them burgers and pie from Pie ‘n Burger, Pasadena’s revered diner.

Noodle Island

Noodle Island

WHY Ancient ginger chicken soup with your choice of noodles (rice noodles are best).

At most of the tables you’ll see the two house [...]

55 Degrees

55 Degrees

WHY A terrific array of Italians and a brick-walled, candlelit basement tasting room that’s become the hippest spot in Atwater every night from 5 to 10 p.m. WHAT This eastern outpost of Santa Monica’s Wine Expo is an oenophile hot spot in suddenly hip Atwater. As in Santa Monica, the specialty is small-producer Italian wines [...]

Mama’s Hot Tamales

Mama’s Hot Tamales

WHY Indulge in these tamales not only because they’re delicious, but because they’re making L.A. a better place. Good coffee, too, and a gallery showcasing local artists.

Moles la Tia

Moles la Tia

WHY There’s more than the usual Mexican bill of fare here—this spot elevates sauces to the main attraction. WHAT Red, green and black moles are just the beginning of the rainbow of dishes here.
