Cafe Flore (Beverly Hills)

By in 10: Beverly Hills

Cafe Flore is a lovely local neighborhood French cafe with a flowery exterior and interior, I passed by a few times thinking it was a flower shop. The menu include a range from breakfast, cheese plate, crepes to steak…all on the rather pricey side.

Flammekueche Flore $14.95 French ‘pizza’ from Alsace, aka Tarte Flambée, Salmon, tomato and mushroom with sour cream, dill and lemon juice sauce. It didn’t look like Tarte Flambée, instead the thin crust is more like a puff pastry. Maybe that’s how it is it? The sautee mushroom provide a nice texture. It’s delicious nonetheless.

Their logo bearing signature dessert is this mousse named Plaisir. The flavors du jour were Caramel Mousse and mango. It’s smooth and rich but a bit too sweet for me.

Nothing can rival a simple Nutella Crepe~

I haven’t tried enough to form an opinion about the food, but my lunch experience was pleasant. The fact that I want to try most things on the menu is a good sign. It got very crowded after 1pm.

    This place has been in the back of my head for months, but for some reason I just can’t get myself to go! Not sure why, but it seems like I’m not alone in my ambivalence. It looks lovely though… maybe some day I’ll finally make it out there!

    I used to intern around here, you just gave me a shuddering flashback! 😛 I think I had a takeout burger from here (kind of strange, but my guess is that it was one of the cheaper items) and it was good. I remember being a bit taken aback by the prices because I was expecting a homey neighborhood cafe. I also used to go to Champs Elysees down the street for French sandwiches (they’re not amazing, not terrible).
