Café Bohème Bringing French Charm To The Beach

I heard from a reader (Thanks C.P.!) who asked me to check out the new café that recently opened in Playa Del Rey.  Café Bohème is a breezy French charmer that sits in an unlikely strip mall at 8248 Pershing Dr. (corner of Manchester).  A full remodel of the space has turned it into an airy, bright, cozy dining room and counter with soft wood and macramé accessories.  The current menu is tellement Francais and includes omelettes, quiche, tartines, croque monsieur, galettes, and crêpes sucrées . They also produce their own croissants and pastries.  Right now they are only open for breakfast and lunch, but dinner plans are in the works.  We wish them bonne chance.

Even More CBTL Losses!

Yikes!  Ever since I first started telling you about the mass extinction of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf from the Westside, I’ve been hearing from horrified fans mourning the loss of even more neighborhood CBTLs.  The Coffee Bean on the corner of Second and Santa Monica Blvd. is now gone.  The CBTL on the corner of Wilshire and Federal has disappeared.  And, while I haven’t checked it out personally, readers are telling me that The Coffee Bean on the corner of Lincoln and Manchester is now caput.  Lots of you have been sending me theories on why this is happening, but if you have definite information, please let us know…CBTL1.jpgCBTL2

With one other location in Sherman Oaks, self-described superfood café The Harvest Bar is now up and delivering the goods in their new location at 8601 Lincoln Blvd. in Westchester.  Look for a menu of smoothies, bowls, and breakfasts comprised of a variety of fruits, proteins, and acai.  Check out more and read their menu here.
