Rockenwagner's 3 Square Cafe + Bakery opened on Abbot Kinney this week -- yahoo! Went there yesterday and there was actually a line out the door. I work near Venice and now I don't have to drive down Washington Blvd. to get their Bacon & Cheese Twists. Oh, joy! :)
They also have great sandwiches. I had the brie with caramelized pears and figs on walnut bread. It was excellent. The cafe part is not opened yet but it will be end of January. Parking's a hassle, but that's Abbot Kinney for you.
