good to know
Go here for: a “sick day” breakfast, or a weekday lunch. No one will care that you took a long lunch if you come back with a box of pastries. Plus they have some local gifts if you need a last minute birthday present.
Order this: sesame butter toast ($7), shredded cabbage and chicken salad ($14), sweet potato pancake ($14), Vietnamese beef stew ($16), chocolate chess pie (or really, any of their pies)
Amount of time to spend: Fiona is best enjoyed at a leisurely pace. But if life calls, it is a counter order place, so it’s easy to grab to go as well.
When to come: slow weekday mornings are particularly special because it’s never busy, but they do dinner too
Parking: is a bit of a nightmare. If you come during the day, there’s 2 hour parking in the residential streets (don’t bother coming during street cleaning). Otherwise, leave offerings to the parking gods to find a meter on Fairfax. You might be better off finding something on Beverly and walking over.
Other things to note:
- They do reservations of Resy for dinner.
- They don’t do espresso drinks but they have 2 drip coffees (light + dark roast) with free refills for dine-in. They also have a cold brew and decent selection of teas.
