Spent last week buying, wrapping, and delivering all of my holiday gifts for the year while still half in denial that it is, in fact, Christmas-time once again. Anyone else facing the end of 2014 with a heavy dose of “whaaaaaaat???” Every year just keeps getting shorter and shorter, I swear.

In any case, wanted to introduce to you my favorite little cafe on the east side! I’m actually a bit reluctant to give away all my favorite little spots, but because we’re all friends here and in the spirit of Christmas, share and share away I shall! (About 95% positive that last sentence was not even English, but seeing as we’re all friends here and in the spirit of Christmas…)

Snapped these photos at Figaro Bistro in Los Feliz a little while back. Figaro has been one of my go-to’s ever since I moved to LA and was introduced to their incredible happy hour (M-Th 4-7!) by a friend who lives nearby. The quaint decor, heavily-French-accented wait staff, and dreamy ambience make me feel as if I stumbled right out of LA into France. And after a long day of work, nothing is better than meeting up with a friend or holing up with a book over a demi-peche and cheese. If you’re not familiar with demi-peche, it’s basically a French beer with peach syrup. Don’t knock it til you’ve tried it. It is to die for, and you’re welcome.

Where are some of your favorite hideways in your city? I love to eat my way through every city, so be a friend and give me the scoop! <3


  1. If you like sushi, Uchi is amazing. That’s coming from me and someone I know from LA. There is one in Austin and another in Houston. Two amazing cities if you like food.

    • No problem! Let me know how you like it. I live in Houston so here are two more tips for next time you visit. Go and check out McGovern Centennial Gardens. It recently opened up by Herman park. It has a spiral hill that is really fun to walk up. The second tip is the Waterwall by the Galleria. Both are pretty amazing for pictures. Enjoy!

      Oh and you have a really nice blog. I come back from time to time and it always puts a smile on my face so thanks for that!
