The Best Coffee in LA: Cafe Dolce

I’m no coffee expert but I know when I taste a delicious cup of coffee … and for me, a cup at Café Dolce in Little Tokyo is the best in town. The best. Who knew that there’s a quality coffee house in the Japanese Village, surrounded by Japanese supermarket, and shabu shabu and sushi restaurants!

Kevin and I make sure that we stop by there for a cup of coffee (my favorite is the ice coffee) during our Japanese grocery shopping runs on the weekend.  I tried Mocha Roti (round sweet bread) for the first time today and it didn’t disappoint either!

Here’s the beautiful Cafe Latte I ordered.  I hope you all have a wonderful July 4th!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Tiffany, Shannon, Raf, Roya, Kevin, and I, along with other wonderful friends, celebrated St. Patrick’s Day at Villain Tavern in Downtown Los Angeles.  We got there at 2:00 p.m. for an early celebration.  This was also Tiffany and Roya’s farewell bash.cry I didn’t drink alcohol but had one of the most amazing freshly-squeezed orange juices I’ve ever had.  I picked on cabbage, carrots, and potatoes from Kevin’s Corn Beef and Cabbage, while I nibbled on my No Kill Burger (veggie patty, tomato, lettuce, and spicy mayo), with a side of fries.  I only ate half of the burger, and few fries.

Afterward, we stopped by Little Tokyo for Imagawayaki.  We also enjoyed this amazing cup of coffee from Café Dulce, with Spirulina Chewy Bun.  I don’t really know much about spirulina but apparently it’s made out of algea (like seaweed) and is the latest health food trend.  The bun was pretty good – not your typical bread and has an acquired taste and texture but I really liked it.  I only had a sip but I can tell that its coffee is made out of quality beans.

I hope you all had a wonderful St. Patty’s Day!
