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.

    Literati cafe on Wilshire.

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

          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.

            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.

              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.

                You might try City Bakery or Lemon Moon.

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