‘Adorable’ is the first word that springs to mind when describing The Trails - this cute outdoor cafe in Griffith Park looks like a scene straight from a Disney movie. Housed in a wood cabin and surrounded by picnic tables, The Trials is where hikers, joggers and mere walkers assemble to refuel after descending one of the many trail paths nearby.
The setting is picturesque and the site is indeed sun-dappled, but this place does not deal in charm factor alone. Luckily, The Trails comes up with the goods when it comes to food and drink - really good baked goods to be specific, as well as excellent coffee and a fairly spectacular avocado sandwich loaded with cheese, mayo, red onion, bacon bits and…alfalfa sprouts. Well this is LA, after all.
