Coming Soon: Clover | Marni Epstein

By Marni Epstein

In the former home of Skylight Books’ Art Annex (which moved over one storefront),  Clover Cafe plans to sprout up this summer with healthy food options, reports Eater LA. The bustling Vermont Avenue strip in Los Feliz, which is already home to mainstays like Figaro Bistro and Palermo, will now welcome the juicer and cafe to the fold. Clover in Los Feliz will serve the full juice menu found at their La Brea location, and additionally the new outpost will be pouring craft beer and wine.

 In other Shopper & Diner news:

  • Over in Historic Filipinotown My Mom’s Bakeshop is beckoning passers-by with their delicious pan de sal, says the LA Times. Sweet, delicate, and lightly toasted, these specialties truly have the mark of a mother’s love. While Pan de sal is the shop’s signature, they also boast a full menu of hearty Filipino fare.
  • Also maintaining a homespun, vintage flair is Cindy’s Restaurant. The retro Eagle Rock eatery was recently acquired by Chef Paul Rosenbluh of Firefly Bistro in Pasadena. All looks to remain relatively unchanged though, notes Eater LA, aside from the addition of barbecue to the menu.
  • KPCC reports that in a study conducted by NPR, Echo Park has the most expensive pizza in the greater Los Angeles area. What is the median cost of pizza. you wonder? $18! But before you get ready to sell a kidney for a pie, it should be noted that Los Feliz ranks substantially farther down on the list at around $14.
