Had a wonderful croque madame there today. This is just a very simple cafe on National Blvd. but they obviously care about the details.
A nice little patio, good iced tea, and beautifully ripe tomatoes and fresh fruit on the plate with the sandwich. The sandwich, btw, was excellent. Good Mornay sauce, good bread, good prosciutto. Also, it was just the right size and not vulgarly oversized for such a relatively rich item. The only small issue I had was that the beautifully cooked egg was a bit too firm for my taste. Don't know if that was a mistake or their chosen style. In any case, I'll ask for it runnier, next time.
Looks like a very nice place for breakfast or lunch if you're in the area. Lunch would be about traditional sandwiches and pannini.
I only found it because it was on J. Gold's list of 99 essential L.A. restaurants. Highly recommended.
