THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Watercress A Cafe Restaurant Review

: Healthy food rarely tastes as good as it does at this tiny, charming spot on Ventura Boulevard. The modern space is filled with a handful of flower-topped wooden tables paired with woven chairs, as modern sconces and a white marble counter for take-out complete a relatively sophisticated setting. A clientele of gossiping friends and soccer moms with toddlers in tow enjoys sandwiches like chicken pesto panini and organic egg salad, while specials like four-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese make you wish the place was open for dinner. Morning hours feature a chorizo scramble, organic buttermilk pancakes and egg frittata panini with goat cheese, roasted tomato and basil.
