Sandwiches, sweets, and coffee
Where: At the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and
Plaza of the Stars
Price Range: $
This faux-bistro blends the current craze for coffee bars with a tasty array of breakfast and dessert baked goods. It's an unbeatable combination. If you're visiting during one of the less crowded times of year (so you don't have to dash right off to Rip Ride Rockit), you might want to pause here for a fortifying if calorie-laden breakfast. Sit outside on sunny days to entertain yourself with the passing people-watcher's parade.
There are gigantic blueberry, banana-nut, and bran muffins and roly-poly chocolate croissants. If you subscribe to the when-on-vacation-start-with-dessert philosophy, why not start the day off right with an eclair, or a slice of raspberry cheesecake? Choices range from basic pastries and muffins to lavish cakes for around $5 and fancy cappuccinos.
Later in the day, you can stop in for a smoked turkey, roast beef, or ham and Swiss sandwich on your choice of baguette or croissant. Or soothe your conscience with a Health Sandwich of Swiss cheese, sprouts, cucumbers, and avocados. Sandwiches come with a tasty side of potato salad and fresh fruit. You can also get combinations with salad or soup..
