The Infatuation

Good organic food in a casual space, with lots of beer.

Ratings 7.5-8.0:These are restaurants that are reliable, tasty, and particularly good for whatever we have deemed them “Perfect For.” Hit up a 7.7 for Date Night with confidence, as long as you don’t need the restaurant to be the most interesting thing that happens that night.

Just a wonderful experience. Parking is not easy... small lot and hard to find street parking. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. It was my husband's birthday and it was a delight. My daughter and I had onion soup and cesar salad. We shared a nacho appetizer. My husband had a special mushroom dish with mashed potatoes. For dessert he had a shamrock shake and we shared an apple pie. We were very full and had to take some food home...but extremely satisfied. Can't wait to return.

What a wonderful experience! Went for the first time Saturday night and everything was just right. The restaurant looks beautiful, everything well kept up and nicely decorated.
Food was great, we had a vegan, vegetarians and meat eaters in our party and everyone loved their dinner, drinks were tasty, and the best of all, the service was outstanding, we ere served promptly, got our drinks and starters, the main meal was served and we all got our meals at the same time, that is a plus.
We were on our way to a show in NoHo so were pleased that we had a great meal, a good time and had time to spare to get to the theatre.
Loved it, and will be back.

We found this restaurant while searching Open Table. We travel to LA often but usually don't get far from our hotel/ room service. Wanting something different we read the reviews on this restaurant and decided to give it a try! From the moment we walked in until the moment we left the staff could not have been more available and helpful. Not once did we feel hesitant asking all kinds of questions about the menu and the staff took as much time as needed to make sure we were going to get exactly what we wanted. You can absolutely taste the freshness of every ingredient and the commitment made to healthy and delicious dining cannot be missed! Will definitely be returning! The restaurant itself is very charming and warm!

We ordered the taco lettuce cups which was super refreshing and so full of flavor. Highly recommend. The mac n cheese was really good and my friend was SHOCKED it was vegan. It was really filling and we could only finish half. The almond butter cheesecake was really rich and great for sharing.

Ambiance is home like and quaint. The menu reads well but execution was poor. This is our second chance but won't return. BLT was on big bun with mostly L and the B was limp/mushy tempeh like bacon. Crispy bacon could have improved the sandwich. The nachos were highly anticipated but faux cheese was cold and corn chips not fresh at all. Reminded me of gas station nachos. BbQ cauliflower was tasty. The highlight was the sparkling blue berry mojito, didn't skimp on the alcohol or flavor. My suggestion is go for drinks and appetizer. Our server was sweet the few times we saw her but we had to get up twice to order and pay the check.

I really wanted to like this restaurant. The chips that came with the nachos were store bought and the lettuce and veggies in the salad weren't fresh. I will try again just in case it was a bad day.

SunCafe is, without hesitation, my FAVORITE VEGAN RESTAURANT in Southern California. I have been plant-based vegan for three years, and I can enjoy any item I wish off their varied menu and my non-Vegan friends always enjoy the experience as well. I live over 40 miles away, but always worth the drive to go there for dinner. Also, super convenient if you are heading to an event at the Hollywood Bowl as you can leave your car parked on the street and pick up a shuttle bus right across Ventura Blvd. Servers Thaddeus and Jessica will take great care of you! Enjoy :)
