Los Angeles, CA: Crepes meet Little Tokyo.....a perfect match!

There are no bones about it,.....Four Leaf Tea Room in Little Tokyo on 2nd Street in downtown Los Angeles offers the best crepes EVER!!! Typically, you don't speak of crepes and Japanese in the same breathe, but what a combo. This place is a hidden jewel set back off the street with optional sidewalk seating. These crepes come savory and sweet and in many unique combinations. A couple of my favorites are the caprese, filled with a very fresh and creamy mozzarella, tangy tomatoes, basil and lettuce, and the blueberries with honey cream. As it sounds, it's a decadent combo of fresh berries and fluffy whipped cream wrapped in a light and airy flat pancake, that creates a "MOUTH FULL OF JOY." Once you check out this place, there's no turning back. You'll become a regular,.....I have. It's become more than a great girlfriend pit stop, it lends itself to the occasional "date night" for me and my hubby too. He favors the Japanese Explosion, a unique blend of red bean paste, mochi and green tea gelato with whipped cream. Yum!
I must give a shout out to "my girl", Addie, for the introduction. Not only are the crepes delicious, but Four Leaf offers affordable food that's fresh, tastes good, and quite filling. Pair a delicious crepe with one of their fragrant teas from the extensive tea selection and, voila,'re done!
As a treat to ourselves yesterday afternoon following a great yoga session, myself and the girls made our way to Four Leaf to cap off our afternoon. It couldn't have been more perfect.
Good friends, good food, good laughs,.......good times!!!
