Reporter Food: LA Cafe in Waterford

Reporter Food: LA Cafe in Waterford

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Oct. 31, 2020)

Waterford, MI –  LA Cafe at 5815 Dixie Hwy in Waterford is a unique place with a menu to match.

I recently met a friend for lunch, where we chatted over an appetizer of hummus and pita bread.  If you like thick homemade hummus with lots of garlic, then LA Cafe’s is a good one to try.  My friend sipped coffee from a rainbow mug, on a table with pictures of movie stars from the mid-1900s.  I enjoyed a creamy Italian soda made with chocolate flavoring.  There are many flavors to choose from including amaretto, peppermint, cherry, orange, and Irish cream.

My friend ordered the Good Earth sandwich with turkey added.  This is a wrap made with lettuce, guacamole, onion, tomato, mayo, cucumber, provolone, and sprouts.

I opted for the Chili Corn Bread, which was a square of homemade corn bread topped with vegan chili, green onions, and shredded cheddar.  This was a good, hearty choice. The chili was mild with just the right amount of beans and onions. These items were made for each other, and this was a very happy lunch.

Other menu items include a varitety of “scromlettes,” burgers, salads, and sandwiches. Jerk Chicken Salad, the Surfer’s Dream Sandwich, and the Popeye Scromlette can be found among the choices.  Learn more about LA Cafe on their Facebook Page.
