I’ve discovered another all-day café in Los Angeles that seems to be all the rage. No reservations required, with breakfast and lunch served all day. This is very clever, especially if you’re serving high quality cuisine. Well, Fanny’s, located in the new and fabulous Academy Museum of Motion Pictures (The Oscars!) is just that – super swanky and chic with a fun and smart menu. Even more special, they have an in-house bakery. So, the choices are endless and make for innovative daily specials. I highly recommend making a day of it and visiting the museum too. It really is a must-see.
The restaurant looks something like an old Hollywood studio commissary with plush seating and high drawn dramatic curtains. I found Fanny’s menu to be exciting and elevated. There is quite an array of choices. They have all the bakery items you can possibly imagine (banana bread, pie, cookies, tarts, turnovers, fancy breads, pastries, etc.), and there are both hot and cold breakfast options with a sophisticated twist. Next, there are salads and a few trendy starters, and then a couple of sure to be signature sandwiche options. We shared the Chicken Club, Hamachi Crudo, the outrageously delicious and spicy Carrot Mash (the best!), and a dessert that was to die for, a Tangerine Tart. Yum!
