Neighborhood: Silverlake Wait Time: No wait time at all at 11am. Scene: Your typical Silverlake crowd, with a variety of ages – 20-somethings to young families to older couples. They’re all just really cool, ya know? Oh, and Donald Glover was there. You’ve Gotta Have: Café Stella is home to the WORLD’S BEST BENEDICT. Seriously. You can get it with salmon or benedict (I got salmon). But the real kicker is the “ptato nest” it’s served on. So perfectly crunchy and delicious. Their avocado toast is also great. Booze: Okay, so we got here and we looked around and… no one was drinking. No booze?! Sacrebleu! My fearless dining companion, Lindsey, asked the waitress and never fear – yes. They do have breakfast cocktails. Ya just gotta ask! I had a really great bloody mary and Lindsey had a mint julep. Thumbs. Up. In the Area: As mentioned in my Cliff’s Edge post – a ton! I love Ragg Mopp Vintage and ReForm School. We headed over to The Black Cat afterwards for another drink (or two) and LOVED it there. Super chill, awesome bartender and great drinks. The Final Verdict: All in all, THE spot for a perfect Saturday/Sunday Funday. Lindsey and I are constantly gchatting/texting about how we, “want Café Stella.” Need to come back ASAP!
