Paper or Plastik?

Abe and I needed a place to get some work done for the hour between brunch at Native Foods and my shrinky dink. We stopped at a cafe that we’ve never noticed before – on Pico, near Fairfax.


Paper or Plastik has a beautiful space with good coffee (<—says Abe)…



…and a lot of laptop customers:


We were still full from vegan desserts, but how good do their sweets look?!?



Abe went to a friend’s comedy show; I had to wait at home to find out my call time for a movie shoot I’m doing today.  Didn’t have an appetite until 8:30 pm – Mo’s leftovers all to myself:


Bulked up with the addition of arugula and spring mix


I can eat a soggy salad, but not a mushy apple. This one was nice n crunchy


I don’t have to report to set until noon in Alhambra! Any must-tries in the area?


Check out the interview I did for!

    I don’t like soggy apples either. Have you tried honeycrisp apples? They are my absolute favorite and I’ve already gone through dozens of them in the past couple month.

    That cafe/restaurant looked like where I want/need to spend my afternoon. I am always excited to try new vegan desserts too! Thank you for sharing. I hope you have a lovely afternoon, my friend!

    Perfectly Sweet on Main St. near Garfield Blvd – I like their tres leches cake. They sell to Whole Foods in Pasadena too.

    Half and Half Tea House in Monterey Park. It is off of Atlantic Blvd., across the street from the 99 Ranch Market. Their milk teas are really good.

    Have you tried the Hainan chicken from Savoy? It’s the best one outside of Singapore. It’s on Valley Blvd., and I think the cross steet is Chapel.

    Have fun in Alhambra.

    In-N-Out (cheeseburger animal-style), if you’ve had it before, on the corner of Garfield Ave. and Huntington Dr.

    I love cafes like that – just don’t have them in my neck of the woods anymore being 50 miles nw of Chicago. But, I have a shorter commute which is better!

    Fosselman’s Ice Cream in Alhambra – some of the best homemade ice cream ever. I like to get a sundae with fresh whipped cream and nuts but the ice cream is amazing alone too. It’s one of my favorites and I always make a point of swinging by when I’m back in LA…
