Foursquare Tips

  • try chicken chow bow pasta
  • The turkey sandwich is heavenly: thick slices of nicely brined bird layered on dense house-made bread with thin slivers of just-ripe Camembert cheese, arugula and cherry mostarda.
  • I just wanna get naked and lay down in the baked goods display case.
  • Get a salted caramel-pecan babka for dessert:
  • They're serving up gourmet goodness like cheddar-rosemary croissants, dark ale-spiced gingerbreads, and pastrami-short rib-Gruyere sandwiches, all of which you can wash down with Stumptown coffee.
  • Congratulations to Karen Hatfield for her best pastry chef James Beard Award nomination!
  • Delicious and trendy, but I wish they would put out a sign telling customers not to snatch tables until after they have ordered! Little seating, but it works with no hoarders.
  • Get the salted caramel cookie! Yum!
  • The turkey banh mi wasn't even in a baguette and the ingredients did not meld well at all. :( Did you guys just figured that your typical customers would not know what a real banh mi is like? :|
  • Waiting in line for Karen Hatfield's salted caramel sticky pecan babka is more than worth it. The tomato-onion tart, buttercup bun and rye chocolate chip cookie are all also delicious.
  • Warning: If you're in a hurry in the morning DO NOT order the blintzes. They take nearly half an hour to make.
  • Salted Carmel babka is like a gooey delicious cinnamon roll. Order it now and thank me later. If you order dessert with your meal, they will bring you your dessert first.
  • Come before they stop serving breakfast, and just order the salted caramel sticky pecan babka and the best breakfast sandwich in LA. Also grab a Stumptown cold brew to wash it down.
  • Sycamore kitchen lost a customer today when staff member told me I couldn't sit at a table without a number. I've done it multiple times and have seen others do it as well. Is this a written policy?
  • The brown butter date bundt cakes are amazing! Love the turkey chili with kale, and if you are looking for a sinful treat try the banana dulce de leche cake!
  • Three words: Sour. Cherry. Scone. Ok, two more words: GET IT!
  • The new neighborhood concept from culinary couple Karen and Quinn Hatfield. It's OK--go crazy on the pastry. Karen doesn't disappoint!
  • The Chicken Sandwich was good but next time I will order it without mayo and toasted.
  • Just great food but very little seating space
