in Beverly Hills, on S. Beverly - they may not have the coolest name, but well worth checking out if you have not already...everything is very fresh and they claim seasonal and local

had their burger for lunch and would put it in league with the best burgers in town - niman ranch ground beef, applewood bacon, tillamook cheese, great aoili on the side...like umami burger, i especially appreciated the size of the burger - more of a medium-sized patty, perfect for the brioce bun, not so much meat that i walk out of lunch feeling like i desperately need a nap from all the heaviness sitting in my belly

also had good fresh coleslaw and everything on the menu/coming out of the kitchen looked like something i would want to try...def. will go back, esp. if in the area

    I like it... haven't tried the burger but the salmon bowl was tasty... though on the expensive side for a quick lunch. Falafel was good and came with a really good flat bread. My only complaint is that I want stronger flavors... I like the flavors, I just want more intense flavors. But the ingredients are fresh and everything is prepared with obvious care and pride so I like it. They had some whoopie pies there last time and I couldn't resist... I got one with strawberry cream cheese filling and it was delicious... though again, quite expensive (around $4.50 for a 2" pie).

    BTW, I don't think it's so secret... it's packed at lunch time.

        The whoopie pies they have in there now are only $3.50. The chocolate with caramel is awesome.

        Has anyone tried the lentil soup with sweet Italian sausage and tomato relish? That particular dish sounds appealing to me.

          Lemonade is quite good. Everything else was pedestrian, at best.

            the breakfast burger was pretty incredible (same thing as your, but with a fried egg - whoever invented that is a wonderful person). salads looked real nice. I will be back!

              There's a new branch of Cabbage Patch downtown. Awesome? I wouldn't say so. But I think it's a good alternative to Mendocino Farms and Lemonade for a healthy, casual lunch downtown.

                Let me just say, however, that the falafel at the location downtown was possibly the worst I ever had. It was raw in the center and disturbingly bitter. Everything else has been pretty good (including the lavash bread that came with the falafel).

                Excellent flatbread. I like the gyros which manages to be very fresh tasting especially with some siracha mixed into the yogurt sauce. Is there anything siracha can't do? Sweet potato fries are also quite good as is the mint iced tea.
