Anything new in Cambria dining?

Bless you, debs 20 for the useful reviews and excellent recommendations!

Indigo Moon: We did a bunch of appetizers to give ourselves a "small plates" dinner our first night in Cambria. The waitress was kind of a drag — but not enough of a drawback to keep us from going back. We got there around 8pm and were surprised that around 8:30 people started to pour in. Everything we sampled was superb. Went back for Sunday brunch in their charming garden. Also, very good, with the setting being the biggest draw, only slightly second to the food.

Went to Linn's for lunch to sample the Hearst burger. Very good, although not the best I've ever had. We also went to Easy as Pie (behind the main restaurant) for an early evening bite one night and found the chicken pot pie deletable and the side of mash potatoes worth the trip alone. Had apple pie for desert as they were out of the famous Ollalaberry Pie. What a drag!

Went for drink to Moonstone Bar and Grill for a drink on the patio. It was undrinkable. Next time I'll get a beer so that I can watch the sunset from their patio with exquisite views of the ocean.

Robin's also excellent. We didn't make reservations so ended up in the house, which I found claustrophobic, rather than their lovely patio. I had the tofu dish and found it exceptionally flavorful. I believe Opal basil or some such was the secret, but whatever it was, it gave the dish dimension.

Madeline's had a very funny waiter (not funny, but a bit odd) but the food seemed prepared with much, much care and I would definitely go back again. Reservations are a must it seems.

best delivery los feliz

I don't know about best delivery, but I didn't want to let folks no about the worst.
After receiving a flyer on my doorstep, I placed a lunch order with Electric Lotus. When I received the order was both substantially overcharged AND the order was incomplete. I called to get the charges corrected, but they were no help.
