Still makes me cringe to hear someone call me a “foodie” or watch myself on camera, but loved my experience too much not to share. You’ll see the staff at simplethings and know why everything there looks and tastes so good. And yes, I ate the entire sandwich (another great stop on the LA tour) and stand by the fact that the caramel was an excellent surprise.
Simplethings’ focus is on fresh-made sandwiches and pies, simple things indeed. But the basic offerings belie the fact that the people behind this restaurant and pie shop have been in the business for a long time. Carrie Cusack had been baking savory and sweet pies in Los Angeles prior to this venture, which opened late 2010.
Located in a bustling part of West Third Street, the restaurant also offers soups and salads. If you happen to be a lover of pie, or want a whole ton of it, they do custom orders.
