Breakfast at Bottega Louie

The Gem of Downtown Los Angeles - Bottega Louie

Perhaps I should have made a few more visits to Bottega Louie, but with the suggestion of some friends, I knew I had to visit this place. The space occupies a prime 1st floor space on a corner in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles. When you walk in you notice why BL is the hottest restaurant in downtown LA. And I won't say much more about Bottega Louie, except that I do highly recommend a visit for almost any occasion.

Breakfast was my meal of choice at Bottega Louie. I had the breakfast scramble with spinach & cheese with a side of bacon - your typical California morning meal. Mr. B had a bagel & lox. I felt my eggs and spinach were typical and was nothing to write home about. But the bacon I had was solid and thick-cut, almost too much of a good thing. I didn't get to try the bagel & lox, unfortunately. I saw a nice offering of juices, pastries, and coffees, for those downtown power breakfast meetings.

I was able to mosey around the large airy restaurant to see the baked goods like cupcakes and muffins. Macaroons are the new "cupcakes" of a couple of years ago. You start to see them in more recipes, dessert combination's, and menu's. i would suspect that you'll see them more and more in the coming months. And Bottega Louie had a smattering array of multi-colored macaroons

What to Order: Any of the breakfasts looked fine. They have a nice baked good section with macaroons.
What not to Order: N/A. . . You could say the jury's still out since I haven't tried other things.

Parking situation: For breakfast and lunch, I only saw street parking available. I'm sure at night, they will have valet parking.
