That was a whirlwind month!
Welcome to our little blog - if you have just found us, we are Lemon Poppy Kitchen.
A few months back, Katie, Anca, and Jack decided combine forces and take over a vacant restaurant/bakery space out in beautiful Glassell Park, just off of Verdugo Road in a tiny strip-mall called Verdugo Plaza. The address is 3324 Verdugo Rd, Los Angeles, 90065.
In a few short weeks we have gone from a bare, rundown little bakery space with just a few sinks and a (barely) working hood.. to a bare, upbeat, and friendly little coffee shop and bakery!
A little background:
Katie is From The Robin’s Nest.. not literally, that’s the name of her jam company! She makes delicious jam from scratch, hand mixing organic fruits and sugars in a big copper pot over an open flame.
Anca and Jack are the geniuses behind Anca’s Romanian, a humble plachinta making company that you may have seen at a patio near you, or an event, a coffee shop, or wherever fine foods are served in parking lots! Plachinta is stuffed Romanian flatbread, and it’s so good if you don’t know about it you should find about it, fast!
Lemon Poppy Kitchen is now very quietly open for business from 9am to 2pm, Wednesday through Sunday. We make amazing coffee from local rockstar roasters Handsome Coffee, and serve an eclectic mix of whatever bakery goods pop out of the magic kitchen in back. Don’t forget to try some truly delicious jam and perhaps a little thing we like to call plachinta breakfast, where we put an egg on a plachinta and it’s amazing.
Love and Plachinta, and jam that’s good.
Hope to see you soon,
