In a nondescript section of Avenue 64 in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles, a new standard for lunch has arrived cushioned within the walls of Amara Kitchen.
This morning I got to share breakfast with one of my dearest friends as she passed close to my neighborhood on her way to an appointment. I was tasked (delightedly) with the job of suggesting a place to meet. As you may have noticed, I take food very seriously (there is only so much space in the stomach and filling it with just anything is not an ideal option). That’s when I remembered The Little Flower Candy Company on the border between Pasadena and Eagle Rock.
Note: A good place to try is Jeanine’s Restaurant and Bakery in Montecito, yum!
