Sqirl is a wholesome hole-in-the-wall of a café that serves D&B coffee and puts California-grown ingredients together in the most delightful of ways. The little storefront is run by a jam-maker who creates brilliant and beautiful dishes like brioche toast with ricotta and fig jam. Peggy Wang (DIY Editor, BuzzFeed) would have the Crispy Kokuho Rose Brown Rice Salad for her ideal breakfast.

“For brunch I love Sqirl.” – Kiernan Shipka (Actress, Mad Men)

“Sqirl in LA is just so fresh and good and subtly inventive and not expensive. Like, I would seriously consider moving to LA just to be able to eat there whenever I wanted!” – Peggy Wang (DIY Editor, Buzzfeed)
