DTLA: Lunch and Charcoal Coffee at Loit Cafe
Apparently Loit Cafe has been opened for a couple of years now but I didn’t notice until recently it was open to the public. I always thought it was some sort of residential building community hang out / lounge.
Then I saw a photo of their Valentine’s day latte on instagram. When I went in search of it, they said it was only for that romantic holiday but how about a charcoal latte? Perfect!
Loit cafe has a small selection of food. I tried the ham and cheese (not shown– I got half of one) while a friend had the mushroom quiche. I like quiche so I liked the offerings.
My friend got the charcoal lemonade. It was pretty cool to watch the charcoal descend to the bottom of the glass like night taking over daylight. I preferred my charcoal latte though. It was perfectly sweet which is unusual for a latte. I’m used to just milky coffee.
I also tried the chicken sandwich. I will probably skip this in favor of getting a whole quiche next time. While I liked the simple sandwich of bacon, chicken and avocado, it would have been better if the bacon was crispy.
I’m coming back for coffee and pastries. Colored lattes are a trend now but fortunately this charcoal one was tasty!
