JiST Cafe – More Signs of Change in Little Tokyo

5 Jul

Opening next week, 7/9/13, the oddly named JiST Cafe. It replaces the cute, old-school Tokyo Cafe, a place run by little old ladies whose continued existence I thought was only explained by rent control. Tokyo Cafe boasted an incredible location next to the East West Players theater, just down the street from the federal court, with a beautiful little courtyard. The problem was the food was pretty terrible not awesome – a mishmash of Japanese and Chinese cliches.

Let’s see how this new place does.


Here’s the East West Players theater in an old church:


And you can kind of see the courtyard behind the fence here:

    I am sorry you thought Tokyo cafe food was terrible. I love the food and the people.
