This is not your typical LA bistro. Stepping into Sweet Butter Kitchen feels like you've fallen down the rabbit hole and ended up in a quaint New England cafe, where delicate details adorn the shop's outdoor patio and indoor coffee counter. Sandwiches, salads (the Goddess Salad is as heavenly as it sounds) and small entrées are offered for breakfast, lunch and and early dinner (the cafe closes at 6pm), and you can even pick up a picnic box to go for a planned outing. While waiting in line (and the lines do get long during weekend brunch hours), peruse the cookbooks and homemade jams that fill bookshelves along the walls. And don't forget the baked goods to go along with your cappuccino—Sweet Butter makes some stellar cookies and cakes that you'll smell before you even get to the door.

Super quaint neighborhood spot that I really enjoyed when living in Sherman Oaks. Not a ton of seating (certainly not diner-style comfort either) and it can get packed on the weekends - just a fair warning. But overall a really lovely place that is very much worth stopping by for a meal. I love all of the little treats and cookbooks and things that they sell throughout the shop as well. From the coffee/tea drinks to the sandwiches/salads and the baked goods, I don't think I had anything here that I didn't like. Wish I still lived near a place like this and could stop by on the weekends - great vibe and good food.


When I come here, I order the Green Goddess salad every time - plus a cookie or a brownie for good measure. It's a quiet, very New England-esque cafe with a solid breakfast and lunch spread. Service is a bit slow at times, but that's only because the place is usually packed (especially on weekends).
