Figaro Bistrot

Located on Vermont Ave in Los Angeles, I love Figaro Bistrot for a quick Parisian getaway. With outdoor seating featuring traditional Parisian cafe style, and a wide and varied menu, Figaro offers up a great selection of food, desserts, and of course coffee. Step inside and you’ll think you’re right in the heart of Paris, just steps away from the Seine. The cafe creme comes in a bowl, and is probably big enough for four, but easily enjoyed by one — and the sugar cubes are pretty impressive as well. Pricewise, I didn’t think the sandwiches or the coffees were too bad for the quality and quantity. Some of the more traditional French dishes, however, have a definitively Parisian pricetag.
