The West Hollywood Cafe Food Marathon

If Four Cafe was in West Hollywood I’d eat there five times a week. As it’s not I’m left with other sandwich/salad spots that range from stellar to sub-par.

V Cafe on Melrose is one of the best. It’s very similar to Four, with a short list of fresh salads (lentil, brussels sprout, arugula, daikon, beet, etc.) and sandwiches (turkey, caprese, tuna, paninis).

The seasonal deli case, rotating cookies and good coffee make this the top go-to lunch spot in the neighborhood.

As Tender Greens is overpriced, a less expensive and less flavorful options is Fresh Bites on Sunset. The food was fine, it just didn’t have the cohesiveness of flavor or “freshness” if you will…

They can’t touch V Cafe in terms of quality, but if you’re stuck on Sunset it will suffice.

Simplethings Sandwich and Pie Shop is the newest addition to the West Hollywood cafe collective. They’ve claimed high praise on their high rent strip of 3rd Street.

I like their sandwiches and sides, but the big draw is their pie. The Missouri Mud Pie was great. However, the feeling I had at Simplethings was I’d rather just go to Joan’s on Third.

And I typically do for salads, sandwiches, sweets and cheese, because no one in the neighborhood can beat them.

It’s like an infinite sea of cookies, cupcakes, bready brilliance.

    V Cafe is one of our favorites. Now craving their Roasted Turkey sandwich, a little on the pricier end but so delicious.

    I didn’t know V Cafe was good! It’s so close to me too! Will have to meander over there soon for some lentils and roughage.
