Montague’s Parlour at 1019 South Tejon Street deserves its own post because it is so charming and has the best cake in the city, maybe even in the state. Plus they have really good hours and stay open late most days.
The decor is full-on granny old lady tea parlour, which I didn’t like at first, but it eventually grew on me. Think mismatched antique tables and chairs and vintage china.
They serve lots of different soups, salads, sandwiches and daily quiches. They have a decent vegetarian selection and breakfast on the weekends.
If you haven’t been to Montague’s, you should go. You’ll like it.
