LA: Urth Caffé at Beverly HillsTuesday, July 16, 2013
This is the 4th post in my LA Food Tour, Spring 2013 series. Previous post includes Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong, Manhattan Beach Post, and Tsujita LA.
Now that I'm settled back in Manhattan, there is one brunch dish in LA that's remained on my mind - this amazing Bread Pudding with caramelized banana served with steamed milk at Urth Caffé. I mean, just check out the glistening crunchy top on this banana...
Now if that doesn't convince you that Urth Caffé is worth checking out, let me tell you more about this LA hot spot. There's four locations, the one I went to was in Beverly Hills where there's supposedly tons of celebrity sightings if you're into that. (I know I am! Too bad we didn't see anyone when I visited).
From the outside, it looks like a cute mom 'n pop shop with its white fences. Inside, they have a variety of pastries, cakes and baked goods. They're known for their organic coffee and super cute lattes with Hello Kitty foam on top.
|I was yelled at while I took this pic since they seem to have a "no photos" policy - must be for the celebrities' sake|
To round out my healthy breakfast, we also got a fruit plate. Fuzzy berries actually creep me out, but I am finally growing to like blueberries!
LOVED this pizza, especially dipping it in the runny yolk of the poached egg and topping it off with the hot oil and fresh sage.
There's 4 locations in LA in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Santa Monica and Downtown, with a 5th one opening up in Pasadena soon. Definitely worth grabbing a bite if you're in the area!
