    I've tried the Smoked Salmon Benedict, which is incredible and very tasteful. It comes on top of hashed brown instead of bread, brilliant! Good selection of drinks and desserts of course. Packed Sat.

    A morning pastry shop/market, lunchtime café, and all-day dining room decked out in marble and French antiques—you’ll swear it’s the Parisian patisserie Ladurée. Try the perfect pizzas and macarons.

    Outstanding food and service! I got the smoked salmon egg Benedict and farmer market vegetables 2 days in a row and both were delicious. Pâtisseries are obviously very nice. Highly recommend it!

    the portobello fries are a must try, and the poached egg and asparagus. Always take a few macarons to go. You won't regret it... try a rose flavored one.

    Bright and lively, always nice for an afternoon cocktail and snack. If you like cocktails on the sweet side, try the Moulin Rouge, made with fresh raspberries and a hint of elderflower.

    Best macrons I've tried before. There are two dine in sections, one for dessert and coffee and the other for the full kitchen.

    Beautiful atmosphere - like walking into a movie. But it's not just looks, brunch is delicious! Smoked salmon eggs benedict & beignets are the way to go. Only bummer is it does get noisy...

    The Burrata and the Portobello Fries sent me to food heaven. Also. Bottega Louie has turned me into a macaron convert. 💜💛💚💙❤️ Plus points for the branding and really nice packaging.

    Chocolates are $2.00/piece, but some of the best chocolates I have eaten. Pictured: dark chocolate, mint, Earl Grey, Bailey's, feuilletine, gianduja, and coconut. I recommend for gifts.

    All of it was good now matter how hard I tried to find the bad stuff. Beignets, macarons, cherry eclairs, tasty pasta, cookies, croissants, and lemonade all brought joy to my mouth and tummy.

    Great brunch, great food, amazing desserts. Glad that they have finally made the tarts softer. For a long time I always needed a knife to cut with struggle, now can be easily eaten with just a fork!

    Amazing restaurant with great bread and pasta. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu including the hand crafted drinks. Make sure you try their pizza and whole fish.

    Although you can choose from myriad exquisitely-built tarts and tiny layered cakes, sometimes you just want a simple croissant, set on a plain white plate, with an espresso and a small glass of water. Read more

    Their menus is full of delicious treasures! I tried their tomato bruschetta and pan fried pasta and I was blown away! Macrons are also delicious here, definitely go for their rose and salted caramel.

    Roasted cod with clams and mussels in a white wine cream sauce with sautéed leeks and flattened fingerlings $30. Start with burrata tomato caprese!

    Grandiose space makes you feel like you're in a large Italian coffee house, but for the discerning macaron eater: the macaroons are NOT up to snuff

    A complete shit show on the weekends, definitely an attraction for visiting folks Downtown. The food is still good, so grab a seat out front and try some portobello fries with a side of meatballs.

    Amazing spot for a formal dinner or to grab a delicious prosciutto baguette sandwich and there is always a macaroon to celebrate every occasion. I especially like the birthday cake macaroon!

    Love. Love.Love. Lots of lovely delicate pastries. Ask for the complimentary sparkling water, order a pastry or two, sit by the cafe window and read a newspaper or people watch.

    A must-visit in DTLA. Great atmosphere, excellent food. Very nice spot if you want something different. BL is really very noisy but you wouldn't want it to be quiet, it's just that kind of place;)

    Grab AMAZE desserts to go from the chic patisserie, grab a sandwich from the front-room café, or relax with friends in the main room. A downtown staple! My personal pref. is the fried pasta!

    Acoustic is not at all good for a meeting or a social chat. Come in, order, then either keep your mouth closed or scream if you're there to chat :) Otherwise, very fun place with great desserts.

    This place is gorgeous! Try the spaghetti bolognese and the roasted chicken. Before you head out, take some macarons to go. Love the flavours, especially the violet and mango.

    Every month, Bottega Louie adds a new flavor to the lineup. Their S'mores one has all the flavor of your favorite fireside treat, but it's more fit for afternoon tea than outdoor camping. Read more

    Though I've only checked in twice, I've actually grubbed here many times before. I always seem to order the side dish, Asparagus with Poached Egg. If you're a fan of asparagus, try-no get it!

    Its high ceilings alone make it worth the trip. Housed in a former downtown dept. store, its glass display cases present amazing pastries and its bistro covers breakfast, L, + D. Perfect Cuzco Smash!

    Expect a wait of atleast an hour on weekends, even if it's a late dinner. Amazing burrata pizza, portobello fries and tuna carpaccio. Also a full bar for some classy cocktails.

    I highly recommend this place, if you have a sweet tooth but don't want to spend not much or have to many extra calories that ice cream gives you. Get a macaroon!
