Coffee Table Bistro
1958 Colorado Blvd

Located in an Art Deco landmark on Colorado Blvd in Eagle Rock, is the second location of Coffee Table cafe (The first being in Los Feliz on Rowena). It's open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner - but that isn't the subject of this particular post.

I went over to Coffee Table one evening because it was damn hot and I wanted to be in an air conditioned space to read and have some coffee and dessert. Coffee Table fit the bill.

I was surprised to see that they now carry cakes from Sweet Lady Jane!! For those with a sweet tooth, you know what I'm talking about. Sweet Lady Jane is that fine dessert joint on Melrose that is known for making wedding cakes for celebrities.

This slice is the Dulce de Leche. I'll be sure to go back and try some more. And by the way, Coffee Table can get you whole Sweet Lady Jane cakes with 48 hour notice. It's great that I don't have to trek all the way to Hollywood to get some of that Sweet Lady Jane!!

Open daily from 7 AM to 9:30 PM

    I couldn't live without The Coffee Table/Eagle Rock. Well, maybe I could but I heart them so much. WE go almost every weekend for brunch and the food is consistently good, fresh and flavorful. I love the Fresh Garden Sandwich, the BLATT sandwich, the Eggs From Hell....ok- I love everything and they make the best iced coffee and offer free refills. With few decent brunch options in the area (Fatty's is a JOKE) I'm so glad they set up shop.

    Sounds super yum! And I love SLJ cakes. How much was the slice?

    tokyoastrogirl: To be honest my experience at Coffee Table has been hit or miss on the food. I don't consider a desitination site for the "great meal", but I like having a cafe close by with some good coffee, food throughout the day with air conditioning and big tables to work on where you can sit for hours... Can't beat that. I'll try some of the dishes you mention sometime.

    jeni: The slice is not cheap at $6.44 but it is SLJ....

    I don't understand the lines at the Coffee Table, except maybe for the fact that there is little else nearby. I live a block away from here, but the food is really mediocre and overpriced. Sweet Lady Jane cakes are amazing of course, but even the coffee at CT is often bad.

    I go on the rare occasion when I don't feel like trekking somewhere else, and only stick to the salads, which aren't as bad, or grab a slice of SLJ. But if I want coffee I head down to Swork.

    Tom: I hear you. It's been hit or miss for me there. I usually stick to the espresso drinks and I also had decent salads there. But I do agree, walking up to the place and seeing a huge line cam be discrouaging when you just want to get something quick to eat. I guess go when its a lazy day and you're unmotivated to travel much. Cheers.
