I. Love. Bottega. Louie. I have a special thing for French pastries as it is, but they get everything right at this restaurant/market/patisserie in Downtown LA!
We went for brunch on a Sunday and it was crowded but rightfully so. The food is well worth the wait! You can choose from breakfast items, salads, pizzas, sandwiches and more. We opted for breakfast, as we usually do, and ordered the beignets with raspberry sauce (gone in 30 seconds), an italian scramble, oatmeal with berries and proscuitto with mozzarella over a potato pancake. Yum!
The place is super clean, the staff are friendly and the kitchen is open for all to see the food being prepared. They’ve also got a bar for those who like a mimosa or three!
Now on to the best part… The patesserie! I’m a sucker for sweets and wanted everything in the pastry case. Assorted eclairs, fruit tarts, mousse cakes and more… Mmmm! They also had croissants and assorted breads to take home, candy and the best assortment of French macrons for miles! We took a ton of sweets home!
We will definitely be back and recommend this place the next time you are in LA looking for a great brunch spot or just a fix for that sweet tooth of yours.
