Great Parisian ambiance, food and people! The americano coffee comes either to-go or in a bowl for dipping their amazing pastries into. The Parisian omelette was a perfect meal to start my long day. I’d come back in a heartbeat.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
