The brainchild of Farid Zari, Cafe Livret is a tiny restaurant and tea shop serving a fascinating blend of foods reflecting his various influences growing up. You’ll see a French inspired menu with nods toward his Tunisian heritage along with touches from California cooking. The restaurant’s motto is Eat. Good. Clean. Food and that ethos extends itself to the menu as well. Also attached is Whisk Culinary Arts, a cooking school run by the chef.
It’s a few paper covered tables, concrete floors and bare walls, minimalism is the aesthetic choice. Serving breakfast all day along with a full lunch menu, there is a patio from which one can sample flights of tea.
