Elf Cafe in Echo Park - So Tiny and Cute!

Suebee | Nov 10, 200604:22 AM     50

Just noticed the little place just doors away from American Apparel in Echo Park was finally open and took a quick peek inside. So cute! Looks like a tiny brasserie, couldn't seat more than 20-25. Very friendly staff.

I have to admit my heart sunk a bit upon learning that the menu was not only vegan/vegetarian, but mediterranean, not my favorite cuisine. Yet once I actually read the menu, my interest was piqued and I honestly look forward to trying this adorable new addition to the hood.

Some things I'd like to try:

Mediterranean Lentils: a crock of organic lentil with mushrooms and carmelized onions

Organic Kale Salad with avocado, hemp seeds and citrus seeds

Gorgonzola mac and cheese

Baked Tart with Sauteed Mushroom and Feta
