Literati is a busy cafe! The food, the menu, and the atmosphere are all delightful. They also have valet parking which is a real plus for this area of Los Angeles. When I am in this area, Literati will be my "go to" place.

In a city/country that clearly delivers the greatest choice for breakfast, there is nothing particularly special here but still offers the usual wide choice. Bacon was under cooked & sparse with the accompanying bread like a mini slice! Saying that, the espresso was excellent.
