On a recent trip to L.A. we happened upon the Bluebird Cafe in Culver City. I know, it's not likely to "happen upon" anything in Los Angeles, it's more of a destination kind of place, but really, we happened upon this spot! What a find, the food was excellent, and come to find out a writer for LA Weekly considers it one of Los Angeles' 99 Essential Restaurants. After a fantastic lunch, we were treated to their signature cupcakes. I've blogged about the popularity of cupcakes before, and feel the need to post this gorgeously simple photo of Bluebird's chocolate cupcake. This style of sprinkle, confetti, is my favorite too.
Kalliope considers the Bluebird one of Los Angeles' 3 Essential Restaurants, still working on the other two... now where's Culver City again
