First Review by Hugo

Huge Portions! - Edit

I loved this place. Went with my friend and decided to split an appetizer and main dish. I was worried it wouldn’t be enough but when the nachos arrived it was HUGE!! We would’ve had to share anyways!! It was also delicious and flavorful. The fake meat on it was super good too. We also had the grilled cheese and tomato soup dish which was equally amazing. The soup was good enough to eat on its own but I also love to dip my sandwich in it! Can’t wait to try out their brunch!!! We will be back...

Pros: all vegan with FLAVOR, gluten free options, patio area

Cons: kinda small parking

Delicious Brunch! - Edit

Visited Sun Cafè late on a Sunday morning for brunch. They were able to seat us outside immediately w/o a reservation. After discussing choices we ended up with a chickpea omelette, florentine, avo toast, date coffee shake, and a blueberry kale smoothie. Everything was flavorful, large portions, and beautiful. Service was helpful, and non veg and vegan fam alike left stuffed and satisfied. On our way out though we spotted some cupcakes and of course took some to go. Definitely a little pricey, but great quality food every once in a while or for a special occasion. Also a beautiful restaurant both outside and in. I’m sure I will be back for lunch or dinner sometime!

Pros: Fantastic food, Good Service, Not too busy, even for Sunday brunch

Always special - Edit

I've got two plant-based eaters, one vegetarian, and one meat eater in our household. We have come here many times. Sometimes special occasions and other times to have a great meal. And truthfully it always is. Most recently I had the Cauliflower Steak. Seems simple and it was. Simply DELICIOUS! Others in our party had the stir-fry, three tacos, and the shepard's pie. Worth the visit. Every time!

Pros: Variety of options, Raw options, Portion size

Cons: Parking

Appréciable - Edit

Ce n'est pas le genre de restaurant vers lequel je me dirige habituellement mais on s'y sent à l'aise.
La terrasse est vraiment sympathique. (Mention spéciale pour les photos d'animaux à l'intérieur et l'arbre à peluches)
La nourriture que mon copain et moi avons choisi était assez simple, pizza pour lui et lasagne pour moi, que j'ai vraiment trouvé délicieuse.
Leur limonade maison est vraiment excellente !

C'est tout de même assez cher pour ce que c'est.

Pros: La terrasse, La limonade maison

Cons: Les prix

Gorgeous & Delicious - Edit

I loved everything about suncafe. It's a little out of the way near Universal studios but the building and setup is beautiful. The staff is friendly and pretty too and I even really liked the artwork on the walls. The food was amazing!!! I tried the quesadilla and it was a really great portion. I didn't feel hungry after and it's probably in my top 3 favorite dine in spots out here. There's outside and inside seating and different sets of lighting so whatever vibe you're looking for you can find and enjoy some amazing vegan food. I would be really interested to keep going to try the entire menu! I doubt anything is bad here, only thing is there weren't many if any raw options.

Pros: Ambience, Food quality, Service

Cons: Small parking lot , Few raw food options

Beautiful Food and Atmosphere! - Edit

I have only ever had wonderful experiences at Sun! The lovely outdoor seating area is my favorite place to be on a sunny day!
I have tried a couple items on the menu and have been highly impressed by them all. If you go for breakfast try the carrot "lox" cream cheese bagel! :)
The staff is friendly and extremely accommodating! I can't wait to go back to sun next time I'm in Studio City area.

Pros: Atmosphere, Exquisite Food , Service

Cons: Pricey , Far away from central LA

Vegan Breakfast - Edit

Hi! We stopped for breakfast on our way leaving out of town (visiting for the weekend/Universal Studios). My husband ordered a smoothie and it was okay. He didn't love it. Our two boys and myself all ordered the waffles with fruit topping. The waffles were hard. If they had been fluffy they would have tasted great I think. There was very little fresh fruit. The service was okay nothing spectacular. I wouldn't describe it as being excellent customer service at all. We spend about $80 on breakfast for 1 smoothie and 3 waffle plates (1 waffle each with a few pieces of fruit). I would like to try some of their other entrees that they serve for lunch/dinner but this location will not be our first choice for going to a vegan restaurant.

favourite in LA (so far) - Edit

Been to most of the notable places in LA to eat for vegans but kept coming back to this one, in fact so many times one of the waitresses joked if we was trying to move in! But best place for me, great menu & the food is so good but you always feel great after eating it, never feels unhealthy or junky, even though it tastes so good. Go!

Pros: great food, great wine , nice staff

Cons: lil bit expensive but that's just America

amazing food - Edit

The food is amazing. Everything we have had was good! BBQ cauliflower, nachos, tacos it was all so flavorful! The service was so friendly and warm on the occasions we went. However most recently our server went from having just 4 tables to mange at the beginning of our meal, to at least 6 on all sides of the restaurant (inside and outside) this is way too much to ask of someone. And because of it we were neglected in this shuffle we, among other things weren't able to get more water, our exiting service was unsatisfactory it took us more than 20 mins to ask for and pay for our check. We noticed the server had so many tables because we were watching him work the entire restaurant while we anxiously waited to be able to leave. Finally the hostess brought our check over, but it had an error, they fixed it but it was just another bump on the road. I hope if we decide to go back the service will be more balanced.

Pros: delicious food , good raw options

Cons: slow service

GREAT food - Edit

A restaurant, not a cafe as the name suggests.
We ordered quesidilla, a toasted sandwich and a milkshake. The shake was meant to be coffee, tasted more like chocolate but that's fine with me. Friends ate a burger and mac n cheese, looked really good. The restaurant also serves beer and wine.
Service was very attentive and friendly. Portions were bang on (although I got a box on account of the milkshake, which was 20oz).
There was a sharp intake of breath when the bill came ($140 for 4 people) which prevents this being 5 stars.

Pros: Quality food, very tasty, Excellent service

Cons: $$

great vegan food options and atmosphere - Edit

I've only been once, a friend that lives in North Hollywood took me and we had a very nice time. We sat in the lounge area outside because she brought her dog with her. I loved the food and the gluten free options, the service was good. I had Moroccan lentil stew and gluten free pizza :)
I would totally come back if I'm ever back in California.

Pros: great vegan food, gluten free options, nice atmosphere

Cons: Not too cheap

Awesome place... - Edit

I like to go on the weekends for their "vegan" omelet. It comes with finger potatoes or mixed greens, I recommend spending an extra dollar and getting their Caesar salad instead. If the omelette isn't covered with avocado make sure they check for ripe ones in the kitchen, usually it comes with avocado on top. Addendum: They now serve mashed potatoes and gravy as a side as well (with the vegan omelet). It's okay, but the gravy isn't as good as Real Food Daily's.

I haven't checked out their other recipes yet...but plan to. YUMMY!

RawDiculous - Edit

Wow this place is so pleasant. I am sitting on peaceful outdoor deck under a tree. Service always the best, food is creative and love all their raw options even though some are cooked. Before leaving a must is their yummy cupcakes. One of the best in LA for sure.

Pros: Organic, Amazing service, Great ambience

Cons: Can hear cars

Take out was fantastic - Edit

We ordered the food online so I cannot really write a review of the place itself. However I can tell you the food was amazing! We got the quinoa salad, the BLT burger and the Cookie Dough for dessert. I'm still amazed at what they can do with dessert! Delivery time as also not too long if you keep in mind that the driver had to come down to Hollywood on Cahuenga. We are definitely planning to go there in person the next time to check the vibe.

Pros: Delicious food, Fast delivery

Cons: A bit pricy

Fun to eat here, but a little bit style over substance - Edit

I liked the ambience here, and am especially glad I went for brunch, so I could enjoy the sunshine out in front of the restaurant. The place is a little hidden away in its own cove which made for a nice meal.

The food was good, but I expected more of it for how expensive the meal was. I wasn't full by the time I left. Next time I visit, I might do so with the family and order a variety of dishes to share.

Good pizza - Edit

I visited Sun Cafe for dinner. Food was delicious: A tasty curry with black rice and a daily special: fig and smoked tempeh pizza. I liked both and the crust of the pizza was very tasty. I enjoyed very much the food. What I didn't like was that my table was close to the bathroom. The bathroom was clogged and as people got in and out of the bathroom a funny smell went all over the restaurant. The managers should definitely avoid this type of situations from happening. I would love to give SunCafe the extra star next time that I visit.
