Persian Pleasures: Pink Orchid

When my friend Hengameh and I meet for breakfast or lunch, we usually end up at one of our favorite hangouts in Westwood, California, a casual bakery and cafe called Pink Orchid.

Pink Orchid is a small but lively place where you can have delicious, inexpensive meals (under $12) in a relaxed atmosphere. Pink Orchid serves sandwiches, salads, egg dishes, fresh fruit juices and delicious desserts.

My friend Hengameh ordered a fresh carrot juice and the Chachapouri (Armenian Cheese and egg pizza) and I had the herbed fritata sandwich (Kuku Sabzi). Everything we tasted was fresh and delicious.

Hengameh and I couldn’t leave without taking something special home. I bought the tasty baked donuts (Pirashkis).

Parking is available and Pink Orchid validates. I highly recommend experiencing Pink Orchid. I know I will be back very soon.
