Deli/Cafe in West LA? Similar to Rita Flora or Joan's on Third?

Are there any deli/cafes in West LA similar to Rita Flora, Joan's on Third, or The Little Door Market? I have been to Clementine, which is quite good, but parking at lunch is terrible and so is getting a table.

  1. You might try City Bakery or Lemon Moon.

      Love Lemon Moon - too bad it's not open in the evening or on weekends though.

    2. Clementine is the best of them but, in addition to City Bakery and Lemon Moon, there are also Marmalade in Santa Monica and Cafe Surfas and the Point in Culver City.

      Surfas Restaurant & Supply
      8777 Washington Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232

      Point Cafe
      8522 National Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232

      Marmalade Cafe
      710 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90403

      1. There is a place called "Food" on Pico Blvd in West L.A . It's about 2 blocks east of the Westside Pavillion mall. It is kind of similar to Clementine's . It's pretty good.

        10571 Pico Blvd
        Los Angeles, CA 90064
        (310) 441-7770

        1. Rose Cafe in Venice? Not quite Joan's quality, but pretty darn good (depending on what you get), both deli-style and sit-down, free parking.

          1. Rita Flora's space at 6th/La Brea is up for lease.
