Casbah Cafe

Photography by Christine Choi

In my last outfit post titled Torn Over Time, I mentioned how I stumbled upon this quaint cafe with my photographer Christine Choi called Casbah Cafe. This is where I found what I called the “magic potion” that healed the sickness I had that day. I may sound crazy but I believe the mixture of the their specialty, a delicious chicken soup, the honey ginger  iced tea and the cozy outside tables covered with grapevines really made me feel a lot better.

What I love most about the Casbah Cafe. is the Moroccan-Turkish decor and the beautiful art on the walls outside. I plan on coming back to try their pastries and lattes and enjoy the lovely decor and atmosphere. And the handmade empanadas are definitely on my to try list. If you want to get out of Downtown and enjoy some comfort food this cafe is just a few minutes out of the hectic city in Silver Lake and it’s a must try!

I live in Los Feliz and check out the vintage clothing shop a few doors south of the army surplus store across street from Casbah often. Never thought of stopping to check it out. the big bowl of soup looked very “healing”. my usual pick-me-up is spicy korean instant noodle with an egg, chopped scallion, and seaweed. next time i will try this soup when i feel the “chill” in my bones.

    Korean soups are great too! But this was definitely a new one for me and I really enjoyed it! That vintage clothing spot may be my next on my list!

    Chriselle ( January 31, 2014 at 12:36 PM )

Vivian ( January 30, 2014 at 11:21 AM )

    Chriselle ( January 31, 2014 at 12:34 PM )

I have a feeling that all “casbah” places are gems! There was one so close to be when I lived in DC and they would make the best lentil soup. I would actually get it weekly :) x

Supal {chevrons and éclairs} ( January 30, 2014 at 10:39 AM )

    Supal, that lentil soups sounds amazing!! This was my first Casbah place but now I know to visit more!
