Cafe Tropical – Good Coffee and Great Cookies – Silver Lake Los Angeles CA
2900 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
On a trip to LA last November, we stopped by Pho Cafe and had awesome Vietnamese food . Afterwards we needed some coffee and headed a block down to Cafe Tropical. On Yelp, everyone is writing raving reviews about their amazing Cuban style coffee which I agree is good but are these reviewers blind?!!! Did they not see the gargantuan sized cookies in the dessert bar? These things are enormous and awesome! The tiramisu and carrot cake are also pretty good by the way. (Yes we ate a lot that night).
Oh by the way check out the random decorations of this place. I’m not talking about the multi-colored paper mache lamps – check out the gloves, hats, and other random articles of clothing that are pinned to the walls and ceiling. One of our friends has a theory that they just post all the unclaimed things that people leave behind (there’s an weekly AA meeting next store) and use it as decoration. Pretty random, but good desserts, great coffee and gigantic cookies! Enjoy!
