It's all about the bread . . . and the muffins, pastries, scones, desserts, and anything else containing baked flour and yeast. Breakfast is the obvious time to enjoy La Brea Bakery (they also serve a mean cup of joe), and if you must supplement your daily carbohydrate fix, you can add some smoked salmon or a veggie omelet. At lunch and dinner, the salads, sandwiches, and flatbread pizzas take over. Service has improved markedly in recent years; servers are more attentive and pleasant. Get there early—it's the first eatery at the east end of the resort entrance, and a popular starting (and ending) place for tourists and locals alike.

Setting and Atmosphere

This indoor-outdoor space is rich with the yeasty aromas of breads and cakes, plus whiffs of herbs and spices. hardwood floors and large glass display counters distinguish the dining room. A pleasant patio with colorful umbrellas fronting the cafe is the perfect perch for a quick cappuccino and pastry while you watch the hordes head to work or play in the parks.

House Specialties

For breakfast, nothing beats a big, yeasty fruit muffin and your coffee drink of choice. The panini sandwiches at lunch and dinner are better than the ones across the way at Napolini.

Other Recommendations

Take home one or more loaves of the artisanal breads to snack on later. or try this sandwich on for size: thick sourdough layered with Gruyère cheese, smoked ham, and a fried egg.
