St. Vincent’s Court in Downtown LA

After a lunch of pork chops, biscuits and gravy, candied beets, pie, cake, au gratin potatoes, strawberry horchata and fried eggs at Clifton’s Cafeteria my comrades and myself decided to mosey on over the nearby St. Vincent’s Court.

St Vincent's Court in Downtown Los AngelesSt. Vincent’s Court is an interesting little place in downtown, just off Broadway. With its fuax francaise cafe facades and Middle Eastern/Persian influences, it can be a nice place to duck into for a cup of coffee or tea. Or maybe a kebap if you have not already stuffed yourself silly at Clifton’s like we did.

My understanding is that much of the clientele comes from the surrounding jewelry district/Saint Vincent’s Jewelry Center, and while it was pretty laidback on the Saturday afternoon that we were there, apparently it can get poppin’ after work. I don’t know what that means. That’s just what I hear.

Also, if you are looking for Middle Eastern goods, the delis in the area have them. I got a big tin of Turkish feta and a bunch of olives. They also have hummus and whole wheat pita if you are so inclined.

  1. Ah – Clifton’s – classic! Did you visit the prayer room? It really isn’t a complete visit without hitting the prayer room.

  2. I’ve been wanting to check out the court. You barely get a peak at it driving by. It is so tucked away and looks so charming. Though it’s an odd mix for French facades to house Middle Eastern foods and such.
