Visitors from Lands Far and Near

This weekend the jeffreystravels blog came to discover Atwater Village. Highlight was the Rollin Pin Bakery on Glendale Blvd. Pros: clever signs. Cons: iced mochas. Maybe 1,700 more square feet of Starbucks will help after all.

Then, poor Miles has his dreams shattered after he discovers the unfortunate truth behind Habibi's Cafe, also on Glendale Blvd. It's all movie-set magic, I'm afraid. A falafel facade.

But if AmericanEast turns out to be some kind of Arab-American Pulp Fiction cult hit, our disappointed hunger may someday turn to hipster boasting.

Oh, you should have seen it, we'll say. That's exactly the spot where Tony Shaloub gets into it with Al Faris. Classic!
