Hip Restaurant and Coffee shops are a dime a dozen in LA. The one thing that is lacking is a creative offering of organic, gluten free and dairy free options. Sqirl LA is everything that you hoped for from your neighborhood coffee place. Sqirl is located off an eclectic and up and coming stretch of Virgil Ave among a plethora of Mom and Pop Shops and Mexican Churchs. You may look around wondering if you are in the right place, but you won’t be able to miss it with the line wrapping around the block at peak hours, even on Sunday Morning before they open. Don’t be turned off by the line, since it goes quickly. The real pain is finding seating.
The Green Goddess Salad was decadent, I would just request the dressing on the side since it was a bit too heavy for me. The avocado toast was made to perfection with their amazing Crème fraîche and Zaatar sprinkled on top. We also had the Horchata Latte which is almost as good as a Dirty Chai. The Cinnamon flavor was perfect and was not sweet at all.
Other Items that have been suggested include: Sorrel Pesto Brown Rice Bowl, Ricotta Toast with Seasonal Jam, and the French Toast with Jam.
