It's hard to know where to start this review because everything here is so wonderful! While chilling in this lovely little neighborhood yesterday, Rhonda (who I often invite to be my Yelp
plus one), and I decided to grab lunch at the Village Bakery and Cafe. All food is prepared fresh every day from farmer's market ingredients. Breakfast is served all day too. We're definitely going back to try it. Lunch was delicious! We had creamy mac and
cheese with spinach. ($7.50) This dish was filling and enough for two. Elbow macaroni is combined with tons of melted cheese to make this dish taste like it's right from mom's oven. Though it's not crispy, the creaminess more than makes up for it. The BLT
($9) on toasted sourdough is heaven on earth. Add avocado for $1.50 and lovely marinated grilled free-range chicken for $2.50. This super sandwich includes nitrate-free double smoked applewood bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo. The tuna salad sandwich
($9) is also a winner! It's served cold on sourdough toast or your choice of bread with lettuce and tomato. All sandwiches come with a cup of homemade soup or a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette that is fabulous! Salads include Beet ($6/$8,) Greek
($9) Cobb ($10) and Italian Antipasti ($10). The bakery will knock your socks off! Check it out first then come back after lunch! S'mores Bars are sweet but eat them in phases. Just a side note: My friend Deborah T's are better, but these are pretty good. (hint,
hint!) We love them! If you're a Hand Pie lover, you've come to the right place! These mini pies come in Apple, Berry, and Cherry. They are the perfect size to munch on as you walk off that BLT! Blondies and Brownies are very popular with the Atwater
crowd as well as donut muffins and strawberry donuts. Service is over the top friendly too! We love Atwater Village and we think you will too! The Village Bakery and Cafe 3119 Los Feliz Blvd. Atwater Village (323) 662-8600 Hours: Mon-Fri 8 a.m.- 7
