Cafe Dulce + Spitz – Little Tokyo (Downtown L.A.)

Spitz and Cafe Dulce is nestled in Little Tokyo just outside Downtown Los Angeles. With a gorgeous backdrop of the city skyline and colorful hanging lamps, Little Tokyo is an ideal place to spend an afternoon or night out.

For a wonderful outing, start off with some coffee at Cafe Dulce. They serve Lamill coffee, so I’d say go to this outlet rather than Lamill itself (see past Lamill post). The cafe also has delicious looking pastries, including maple bacon donuts and several types of rotis. The staff is also very friendly.

Walk around the various vintage and cultural stores in the area – there are a lot of hidden treasures. Then head to Spitz for lunch or dinner and prepared to be stuffed. The Doner Kebab combo is the best deal – $10.50 for a huge sandwich, side and drink. I recommend the Classic Sandwich (beef and lamb) + Mediterranean Style + Sweet Potato Fries. The sandwich is fresh and light yet filling, while the fries are the perfect combination of sweet and salty. Do NOT disregard the sauce in the plastic cup placed in the basket. It is absolutely delicious with the fries and sandwich! If you go during their busiest time (7-9pm) it will be loud and pretty crowded, but you will surely find a place to sit. Try sitting outside if you want to have nice conversation.
