Love discovering new places? Cafe Mimosa feels like it’s been in LA’s Topanga Canyon forever but every time I go there I discover something new both to eat and to look at. It’s a visual feast for the eyes.

Mimosa Cafe's bright interior is chi-ful.

The cafe has a distinctly French cottage flair due to it’s French-born proprietress, Claire (pictured here behind the counter).

Claire’s cream puffs come in both chocolate and vanilla and I recommend a sampling of both with some Chai tea or a mocha latte. But first, there are healthy sandwiches, salads, and snacks. Or browse the gifts, art, and aprons for sale (aprons are handmade by Claire’s mom in France).

Handmade aprons from France.

A wonderful place to sit with your laptop or flirt with strangers, Cafe Mimosa is located at 395 S. Topanga Canyon Blvd and you can call 310.455.4341 for more info. Go for a hike on one of Topanga’s lush hiking trails first to work up an appetite! Then afterward, check out the hippie chic mini mall across the way.
