This review is for the bar area: The cocktails are crafted with love here. I had a happy hour bourbon special sour, shared 3 beef sliders and a gargantuan side of fries to accompany the cocktails! 2 cocktails and all that food- $27! The sliders were very tasty-perfectly cooked temperature wise and had very well seasoned toppings that includes lots of sliced avocado. We sat out at the outdoor patio which is really cute: lamps, benches, plants, etc. The bar area is also very nice and there are a couple other tables that line the store openly connected to it- a bakery! Didn't get to try any pasties but there was a constant long line so that's a good sign that I will need to return.

Amazing seafood rolls! The crab roll was the best and second was the lobster roll. Get the boy if you are with two people it's a taste of it all. Three dollar beers on the weekends. Overall pretty epic experience.

Yum yum!! Dessert is awesome here! Got the blue velvet and carrot cake and they were both so soft and moist. However, I kept going back to the carrot cake because it was just so good with the right amount of sweetness. Only thing is that it just had a tad too much of frosting. We sat outside on the tables and it was a pretty chilly night but luckily we were right by those heating lamps (or whatever they're called) to keep us warm. I definitely want to check this place out again to try their foods and the rest of their desserts!

Alcove is pretty solid all-around. The servers are friendly, and the atmosphere is great. I love sitting out on the patio and savoring a beer from Big Bar, or enjoying a leisurely lunch with a good pal. The menu has a zillion options, many of them pretty damn delicious. The juevos rancheros are a standout item. They have a tempting desert bar; I've never had any of their sweets, but f**k me, they all look amazing. The three star star rating is for the time I got takeout juevos rancheros, and the eggs were rotten. That, and their prices are a little high. Still, I would definitely recommend to folks living in the Los Feliz area.

Great big breakfast plates. Big plates all around. Excellent salads. Great for coffee and deserts as well. There's a bar built into the side of the restaurant.

We wanted to have a cupcake fundraiser. After calling around, Alcove Cafe & Bakery was the only cupcake store that was nice enough to allow us to have our cupcake fundraiser there. The staff was very accommodating. They were nice enough to let us use their lounge. When people started to arrive, I heard nothing but praise about their cupcakes. Everyone kept exclaiming how delicious they were. I couldn't wait to take a bite because they looked yummy and huge! After the fundraiser, I ate the carrot cake one, and I was in heaven. Very delicious. Their iced mocha was good as well. Great spot with delicious food.

This cafe lives up to its name. It is situated on a busy street but once you step onto the premises you feel like you've stumbled upon a lively cafe in the countryside with plenty of shade and outdoor seating on all sides of the little cottage. The menu has lots of appealing items. I got the Blackened Chicken Salad, which came with a generous helping of chicken, strawberries, and cheese on a bed of arugula. I didn't really like the dressing though. It competed with the acidity of the strawberries rather than playing up their sweetness. I liked the pretzel bread that came with it, though I've had better (eg from Trader Joe's). My friends got the vegan wrap and a brie and apple sandwich which accordingly were good but not out of the ordinary or phenomenal. The atmosphere is probably the biggest draw of this cafe. We came here after hiking the Hollywood sign on a Saturday around 3pm and it was still busy, but we found a table on the front patio right after we ordered inside. I can only imagine what it would be like going at peak hours. Parking definitely seems problematic. We parked on the residential street west of the cafe and got the only remaining space.
