Serving primarily breakfast and lunch fare, the Curious Palate dishes out omelets, salads and sandwiches that emphasize Los Angeles’ craving for fresh ingredients and healthy choices. The Mar Vista favorite is a popular weekend brunch locale as well, thanks to its menu’s wide variety; a health-conscious diner can eat housemade granola or a veggie burrito while seated right next to someone gorging on chocolate-topped pancakes. But the Curious Palate is also a hit for weekday lunches, and those who appreciate the restaurant’s farm-to-table ethos will often leave the store with a couple of grocery items as well. Racks of artisan pastas, jars of confiture and more line are stuffed onto metal racks about the room, while simple seating comes in the form of café tables.
