I've spent two weeks around that neighborhood and this was my daily spot for breakfast. The avocadotoast is fresh and delicious as well as the smoothies. Will definetely visit again!

Literati is a busy cafe! The food, the menu, and the atmosphere are all delightful. They also have valet parking which is a real plus for this area of Los Angeles. When I am in this area, Literati will be my "go to" place.

In a city/country that clearly delivers the greatest choice for breakfast, there is nothing particularly special here but still offers the usual wide choice. Bacon was under cooked & sparse with the accompanying bread like a mini slice! Saying that, the espresso was excellent.
