Butter Tart Cafe

Bacon Butter Tart

Butter Tart Cafe represents so much of the promise that Northeast Los Angeles holds.  In the Glassell Park space previously occupied by a dive bar (not in the cute way), and I believe briefly by a Filipino restaurant, Butter Tart Cafe has opened a modern, clean cafe with brilliant natural light.  I’d never had the eponymous Canadian sweet before my recent visit, but it was certainly worth the trip.  I chose the bacon butter tart over the plain and bacon and parmesan, and although I’m not usually a fan of sweet and savory (Hawaiian pizza, are you listening?), I was pretty impressed by the dish’s richness (I suppose due to two types of animal fat).  Imagine a pecan pie with bacon instead of pecans.  The coffee was good and the service was friendly.  Their hours had been spotty but have recently expanded to include lunch and a menu of sandwiches.  Next time you’re on your way to Starbucks, keep your money local and try someplace new.
