In Los Angeles the food options can be limitless. Recently opened Superba Food + Bread is making headlines already. I love to see seemingly old abandoned buildings repurposed to new adventures. This building was once a auto mechanic garage and supply store. Superba Food + Bread is located at 1900 S. Lincoln Blvd. in Venice, CA, on the corner of Marco Pl. between Superba Ave. and Amoroso Pl. Ambitiously they opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner during the week, with the addition of brunch on the weekend. That's a big deal to open with serving three meals a day, but I can say after driving back and forth pass this place, it's always busy and in the evenings the lighting looks magical.
First time here was a few days after opening, we really just wanted to get a quick coffee and breakfast snack, not a full service sitting. This didn't seem like an option, but they were nice enough to accommodate us. At the time they were serving Stumptown coffee, but have since switched over to Heart Roasters, which at the time I wrote this Heart Roasters is only served at three places in LA.
I've gone back a few times for breakfast and lunch and really just love this place. It's decor is beautiful and simply designed, and already winning awards [2014 AIA Restaurant Design Award Winner].
I am kind of coveting the custom made Heath Ceramics that they serve their food on. The teeny tiny jars of lemon curd are amazingly delicious, if not a bit pricey, but a splurge once in a while is ok, right?
I am obsessed with this color combination. When driving back and forth down Lincoln Blvd, where Superba is located I was drawn by the mural being painted during construction. Subliminally I may have been influenced by this color as my newly updated bedroom indicates the same palatte. I'm seriously considering painting the doors with these stripes. I know they will replace our old doors when we move, so what do you think?
Say "Yes" to Super Food + Bread. Incidentally I've noticed this simple circular sign design everywhere now. It seems to be standard use on old Route 66 auto shops in the day. Just love the nostalgia of it.
