This blog post is long overdue. I’ve taken a bit of a break from all things social media but now I am slowly bringing myself back to posting/blogging about materials I’ve gathered throughout my own holiday (away from social media, that is). Sweet Butter is among that pile of drafts.
One immediately notices that they’ve utilized their exterior and made it into patio seating area which would be a perfect spot provided the perfect Los Angeles weather. And if you haven’t noticed yet, we happen to go during that time when it rained non-stop for days (take note: flooded street). I particularly love the black awning with matching black wicker woven chairs and those light fixtures are just elegant. Very bistro-like.
The front also has patio seating on both sides of the “gate”. This time there’s benches that run across both walls with accent pillows.
As soon as you enter the gate, both walls are flanked with plants, almost made me do a double take as if I’m going into somebody’s home. There’s two doors, one’s the kitchen and the other’s to the cafe & market.
My eyes were immediately drawn to these market totes. Made to be decorative but served as a reminder for me on how people do it in Europe when they go to their “marketplace”. I still see some people carry such totes during farmers market.
The chalkboard was full with their menu and there’s a lot to choose from.
Walls are converted into shelves.
I ordered the Madam Chocolat hot cocoa and it was just perfect considering the weather at that time. It was rich and decadent.
The grilled cheese was good. It was really really good. And the shoestring french fries that went with it was just perfectly fried. It was crunchy and hot.
I heard about the Chef Ludo-approved Croque Monsieur and of course we have to order it. It was soooo good. I still have dreams about that sandwich. It was just delicious.
To end our perfect late lunch on a very rainy day, we had cupcakes and those were sinful as well.
And what a perfect sight to end our first visit to Sweet Butter…
