The attractions of Los Angeles, like the city itself, tend to be on a large scale, from vast city parks (Griffith Park) to multi-use mega-malls (Americana in Glendale). But there's a cozier, more intimate side to the city waiting to be discovered in its splendidly diverse cafe scene. This handy guide points visitors to some of the best of these destinations. The book includes more than 300 photographs, 70 in-depth profiles, plus cafe stories, thoughts, and recipes from cafe lovers, chefs, and local celebrities. Most of the places profiled include one or more full-page photograph of both the cafe and its surrounding area, with current contact info and directions.
