LAMILL Coffee in Silverlake arrived on the scene in 2008 and has been a favorite meeting spot ever since. Coffee and teas are their specialty and they certainly do it well. My favorite tea which I usually order as a flawless-finish dessert is the Hong Kong Milk Tea with Assam Sewpur Estate tea steeped in condensed milk and sugar (pictured above). It is served at the ideal temperature, perfectly sweetened, and ultra-satisfying.
ABLT (Asian BLT) Pork Belly, Arugula, Tomatoes, black beans
In addition to LAMILL’s drinks which we already know are worth the drive through L.A. traffic, there is also a dining menu serving breakfast until 3pm, an all-day menu, and a dinner menu from 5pm to close. They pride themselves on serving fresh, local ingredients and the food, although sophisticated is flavorful and unpretentious. French Baguettes and Paninis are served with home-cut fries and cippolinis and olives upon request. Popular items include the ABLT (Asian BLT) with Pork Belly, arugula, tomato, preserved black beans (above) and the Jambon de Paris au Beurre Sale with French ham and salted Vermont butter. I frequently order the Burrata di Andria with olive oil, cherry tomatoes, basil and served with a baguette (above). Burrata is one of, if not my favorite cheeses and my only request is I wish LAMILL’s burratta was softer and creamier like at Osteria Mozza or Toluca Lake’s Ca Del Sole.
I enjoy LAMILL’s vibe, colors and chic, contemporary design. They also have all their coffee and tea products available for purchase so you can attempt to brew the good stuff at home. You will find people from all walks of life at LAMILL and I believe it’s because the friendly and courteous staff does a superb job of making everyone feel comfortable. An outdoor seating area parallels the glass entrance wall so you are welcome to bring your canine along for the experience. LAMILL is a recommended spot in LA to meet friends for brunch, grab a high-quality coffee or tea solo, and much to our delight…open all day long.
