Posh on Pico review - mid city Latin-inspired

I think someone posted about this place that was reviewed in the L.A. Times a few weeks ago but I couldn't find the post...anyway I thought I'd try it out.
Posh is a cute little cafe, very nicely decorated, in a slightly odd but apparently up-and-coming location on Pico at Sierra Bonita (between Fairfax and La Brea). The very friendly owner is from Honduras and has various Latin American inspired dishes on the menu, but for lunch, it's mainly a choice of the Latin beef or turkey burger, a few salads and such and the breakfast menu. They're supposed to be adding a Cuban sandwich soon. My friend had the Latin burger which was really tasty with lots of flecks of red and green chiles throughout, served with a baby greens salad ($10.95). I had the arepas with a vegetable omelet. I've never had arepas before, but these were comforting, pillowy corn cakes which went nicely with the eggs and sauteed veggies. Some type of salsa might have been nice with this dish, however, as it was a bit plain. They serve La Brea bakery breads and baked goods as well as their own Tres Leches cake. To drink, they have a different homemade agua fresca each day and ginger lemonade. Dinner dishes -- various Latin inspired steaks, chicken, etc., seem to be in the $15-$20 dollar range. This is a nice addition to the neighborhood, with clean, fresh flavors and, shall we say, aspirational pricing.
It would be a good bet for brunch.
