  1. Not sure if they do it every day but last week I saw a very speciel looking -- something. It was maybe 3 inches high and about 10 inches round and was being cut pie style. I asked the counter person what is was and they said it is like a quiche with spinich and several other good things. Maybe call and ask...

      The only decent quiche that I have had in L.A, was at Cafe Midi on La Brea. I did not like the quiche at Amandine (although some of their pastries are nice), nor at Jin Patiseriere in Venice. Haven't tried the quiche at Urth Cafe, but if it is as mediocre as everything else there, then . . .

        That reminds me, I liked the quiche at Amandine and I liked it better than the pastries. Nice little place to stop-in and eat and then take a bag of pastries home.

        1. re: JeetJet

          Definitely Amandine -- not sure I'd agree the quiche is better than the pastries (esp. that banana chocolate danish) but it's really, really good.

    2. Definitely good according to my best friend who calls herself a connisseurette... Amandine, Clementine, Elysee (in Westwood), French Market Cafe, Little Next Door, Michel Richard, Breadbar (just yesterday) and Urth Caffe... Also have 'em at La Dijonaise, Rose Cafe, Eat Well, Monsieur Marcel...

        I really like the quiche at amandine. I just had the quiche lorraine at Breadbar and it was way too salty ... not my favorite.
        the quiche at that crepe place on 3rd street promenade (corner of broadway, across the street from the broadway deli) has good quiches.

        1. re: Emme

          I liked the quiche at little next door..very good stuff.!

          1. re: Emme

            I'd skip M. Marcel - I've ordered it once, and should have known better when I saw the clearly store-bought in a foil pan crust. Ick.

          2. The quiche at Campinile served at Sunday brunch is great.

            1. I had dinner at Cafe Marly and my friend ordered the quiche which she thought was fantastic. There are two locations - Little Santa Monica Blvd. @ Roxbury in Beverly Hills, and Melrose @ La Brea.

                I tried the quiche at Cafe Marly and found it pretty good as well. Do not buy the prepared quiche at Whole Foods. I made that mistake. Awful.

                1. re: omotosando

                  Also avoid the quiche at La Provence on Olympic between Robertson and Doheny. Someone just brought me one for lunch and It tastes vile and the texture is mushy. The ones at Cafe Marly are consistently good.

              2. Josie's!! They serve a delicious mushroom quiche as an amuse, but you can buy a whole quiche to take out with a day's notice or you can get the recipe at their website.

                1. My absolute FAVORITE is Europanes in Pasadena... it's all about the crust!

                  --Dommy!

                  1. The quiche at La Dijonaise in Culver City is very good; light and a flakey crust. But their fake lemonade tastes like it came out of a big can.

                    1. Urth and Le Petit Four have great quiche!

                      1. le pain quotidien makes great quiche. They have a ham and cheese one and a vegeterian version. There are several all over los angeles, but I find the one on Melrose most apealing

                        1. LA CONVERSATION on doheny just north of santa monica between BH and WeHo has the lightest quiche. it has a custard texture, so it's no dense, but it is very, very good. if you're looking for dense quiche, this is not your quiche.

                          JULIENNE in san marino has good quiche of the second type with a swiss chard crust.
