The Sycamore Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Karen and Quinn Hatfield bring more of their Hatfield’s magic to the masses with this airy bakery/café on La Brea. The indoor rustic-industrial space is bakery-fragrant and inviting. There’s a pretty front courtyard patio, ideal for sipping a cup of Stumptown coffee. Breakfast and lunch are served alongside a devilishly tempting bakery case stocked with treats ranging from giant salted caramel pecan rolls to ripe plum crostata and a soft, warm chocolate hazelnut fudge cookie. Everything is seasonal, local and organic; all the meats and fish are smoked, roasted or cured in-house. Breakfasts include a croque madame with fried egg, and buttermilk barley pancakes with vanilla maple butter. If you can’t drop into Hatfield’s regularly, lunch here is the next best thing. An heirloom melon salad subtly mingles Hungarian chiles, lime salt and mint. Even in a town so saturated with pork belly, the BTLA’s crispy braised version is nicely offset by country bread, butter lettuce and balsamic tomatoes. Our hit pick is the seductive open-face toasted sandwich with house-cured salmon, avocado, capers, hard-cooked egg and lemony pickled radishes.
