Los Angeles

Here is a list of my favorite restaurants, cafes, and bakeries in LA! If it is on this list, I ate there multiple times and I will definitely return. I have linked my review to the name of the restaurant so you can see a full breakdown. You may notice that I have reviewed places that are not on this list. Why? Because I review all my experiences–good AND bad. The mediocre ones (like ones that are only one pasta and one sauce option) didn’t make my top favorites. As a reminder, management/staff/menus change all the time so it is super important to always communicate your dietary needs to the staff and evaluate current cross contact protocols. Without further ado…..
