Just yards from bustling Foothill Boulevard, an oasis of greenery and serenity sits tucked behind a garden gate. Step onto the shady porch of Penelope's Café in La Cañada Flintridge and through the Dutch door, and you'll feel at home right away. Comfortable couches and chairs offer nooks for chatting over a cup of cappuccino or more serious consumption. Everywhere you glance, something interesting awaits your gaze ? a photo or painting, a sculpture or a piece of hand-made jewelry.

Tep Thai in Glendale is a visual feast, as well as a treat for the palate. The stylish interior features polished concrete, high ceilings with teak beams and gleaming mirrors, making the small space feel bright and comfortable. Pendant lamps and retro upholstery fabrics add whimsical flair. Weighty cutlery and attractive porcelain dishes in varied shapes add to the upscale feel. While take-out is available, I prefer to dine in, taking advantage of the ambience. Service is very attentive (during one lunch visit, my beverage glass was topped up at least six times)

Practically everything about Lily’s Cafe in Burbank is adorable. But be careful driving down the street trying to find it because it’s so small, you can easily overlook it. It’s very cozy and has only six tables, with a few stools alongside the large window fronting the street. It’s very homey and out of place on a busy street. I’d expect this more in a smaller, touristy city such as Solvang or Carmel, but I’m glad it’s closer to us. Lily herself is very personable, as clearly evidenced by the steady stream of apparently regular customers she greeted with genuine hugs as they stopped in for lunch, both dine-in and takeout.

T he charm of Sweetsalt Food Shop in Toluca Lake begins with the wooden sign outside advertising its name, evoking the feeling that you've been transported to a wonderful experience of a forgotten era. And it continues when you step inside and view marble and wood-topped tables against a wall with a wainscot bottom. This place has an aura of sensory pleasure, which is akin to the meal in which you are soon to partake. The menu is not extensive but well designed so that there is enough variety to give people choices without assaulting them.

Presiding over the elegant new eatery, The Cafe Victory, is none other than St. Patrick himself. Owner Rogel Aragon brought the 100-year-old stained-glass replica of the saintly man with him from his old restaurant, the popular Patrick’s Cafe, to his new, scaled-down place on Victory near Sonora in Glendale. I think it’s a lucky talisman because The Cafe Victory is a wonderful addition to the neighborhood. The food and decor at the new cafe have absolutely nothing to do with Ireland.
