When life hands you lemons, drop them off at Lemonade. You’ll want both hands free when it comes time to eat at the new cafe.
Having just opened its first location Downtown two weeks ago, the new outpost in West Hollywood starts serving breakfast, lunch, and takeaway bright and early.
Under canvas umbrellas, a handful of aluminum tables and chairs fills the patio; a few more seats fit inside the tiny mod cafeteria.
Line up lunchroom style and build your own plate of hot or cold sandwiches, freshly made soups, and veggie-centric sides from the eighteen daily specials like purple potato with sherry vinaigrette, roast cauliflower with curry, and carrot with yogurt dressing. Everything is house-made including the breads and sweets such as lemon macaroons and cream cheese bars.
And yes, there’s lemonade. Five kinds including peach ginger and blueberry mint.
So there’s no reason to be a sourpuss.
Lemonade, 9001 Beverly Boulevard, at North Doheny Drive, West Hollywood (310-247-2500); 505 South Flower Street, at Fifth Street, Downtown (213-488-0299).
