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.

I have been here a couple of times, mostly of a slice of cake and coffee. I have also been here once for breakfast, which consisted of a breakfast croissant and a latte. The last time, we decided to order a couple of sandwiches and a salad. We opted for the chicken club and the Brie, Apple, grilled onion sandwich. Breakfast and coffee was good. The sandwich is artisan style, so the bread was a little too thick for my taste. I took the top piece off so that solved the problem. I tried their pear apple coleslaw and it was delicious. The chicken club had a smokey flavor. I got a blue velvet cake and the slice provided was huge. I ate it in two days! Cake was moist and not overly sweet. I enjoyed every bite. Coffee is always on point. Place can get crowded but you will go through the line quick and find a table when you finish your order. Service here is always great. Therefore, they deserve every single tip they get. Professional and friendly and accommodating, the staff makes me feel welcome whether I order only coffee or a full on meal. It is a little pricey tart you will feel served not jipped. I love the water set up, where you can add a slice of orange, lime, or lemon to your water. Parking options: street parking, which is metered or they also offer a valet service.

I went to this restaurant tonight in hopes of bonding with my two daughters; sharing a pleasant experience over coffee & dessert. What i got was terrible, rude service, and the most awful customer service i'm sure i could ever receive. The blond girl at the cash register who took my order was cold, un-personable, & her attire was messy & unkept. By her tone of voice & body language, it was very obvious she was not happy to serve me, or even speak to me as a valued guest or customer. The coffee was cold, my wine & pudding stale, & my daughter's tea bag ripped inside of the mug, tea leaf flaked floating at the bottom of her shallow mug. When i went back to the cash register to ask for new drinks, the same girl gave me an even icier treatment than before, holding up her hand to my face, while she was making a personal phone call & turned me away with an "i'm busy right now." Utterly shocked i asked her fellow co-worker for her name, hoping to speak with a manager who would hear me, but he told me he would not provide me that information; probably due to the fact that she was staring him down in an intimidating manner. I WILL NEVER come back to this cafe ever again. I am only sorry that i had to put my family through this, and i pray whoever decides to have a meal here does not experience this RACIST, DISCRIMINATING, & UNACCEPTABLE behavior.

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.

Went here yesterday after at hike at Griffth park. Great place for brunch although I'm sure any meal here would be great! They have a big selection but the menu is thought out well and not too overbearing. Everything was fresh and big portions. The service was super friendly and helpful ( not to mention easy on the eyes- bonus!) They have a great bar you can sit and eat at and a huge selection of cakes that could've reversed all evidence of a 3 hour hike! :) I will be going back for sure!
