Sycamore Kitchen, Los Angeles
La Brea, near Third Street

Nothing like waking up and having a delicious meal with an dear friend. This morning, JustJenn and I went to The Sycamore Kitchen in Los Angeles for their pastries and breakfast. Karen and Quinn Hatfield, chef-owners of Hatfield's, opened The Sycamore Kitchen in 2012.

If you are in Los Angeles, you should wake up tomorrow and do this same. It was delicious!

Above, it's a buttercup ($2.75). Described to JustJenn as "It's like a croissant but with more sugar..." (that was an easy sell), it was light and flaky. My pick was the Blueberry Oat Bar ($3.25) filled with fresh blueberries and just the right amount of sweetness. The crust was perfect.

We ordered a few items from the Breakfast menu (until 11:30 M-F and 12:30 Sat/Sun). The Cinnamon brioche French toast, grated apple slaw, and whipped creme fraiche ($10) was sinful. It was quite rich and sweet. I could have that slaw on everything!

The Pork belly hash with roasted peppers and onions, russet potatoes, two fried eggs and spinach ($11.50) was delicious. The eggs were perfectly cooked. The savory dish was a nice balance to our almost-dessert french toast.

There are many more baked goods available...a return trip is definitely in our future. They have comfortable indoor and outdoor seating.

They also have a lunch menu that looks intriguing too. I want to try the Chinoix Salad with chicken, cabbage, apple, almond, puffed rice and muddled ginger vinaigrette, as well the sandwiches such as the Double BLTA with crispy and braised pork belly...next time!

They serve Stumptown Cold-brewed bottled coffee ($4.50) that Jenn picked up. I adore the bottle! And a little something for later? Of course! Salted Caramel Pecan Bobka Roll ($3.50).

Mmmmmm! Chria is buddies with Quinn- he got to check it out before the official opening but it's soooo far from the westside, so I haven't been yet. (I'm such a loser.) :)

The pork belly hash and eggs look awesome. My wife and I live about an hour north of Santa Barbara, but we love to come to Southern California and tryout different restaurants. Last time we were in downtown L.A. we tried out the Pie Hole, it was a tasty place as well. Definitely going to put this on our list. Thanks, and happy anniverary.

Mary - the buttercup actually looks like a kouign amman, a breton style caramelized kinda croissant. Wildly popular here in SF. Absolutely delicious. Come visit soon!
