Welcome to News From The Pollywog Cafe – a lovely little virtual spot to gather, collect yourself, laugh, learn, smirk, think, and reflect. There’s lots to digest in this crazy-busy world of ours.  Here at the Cafe, you’ll find a nice place to escape for a few if you want to and just enjoy.

On the menu of this wonderfully eclectic Cafe, there are lots of yummy, delectable appetizers and other tasty treats, where the focus of the ingredients is life in and around the City of Los Angeles, aka the City of the Angels, aka La Ciudad de Los Angeles, or which some of our customers simply call L.A. (El Eigh?). Maybe there are shared experiences of life in L.A. or other places.  And the menu items change all the time so keep coming back as you won’t want to miss anything.

Some days, the chef’s specials might include some interesting (or not so interesting) thoughts and perspectives — things to ponder, reflect on, laugh about or just experience – or not. It’s entirely up to you. Other days, you may find honest, legitimate and concise reviews of restaurants, movies (without extensive analysis or spoilers) and theater.

Or you may find out about other fun things to check out as you venture around and explore El Eigh. Being here at the Cafe is like using Waze when you’re driving, where you’ll find yourself going up and down a bunch of City streets you’ve never traveled on and never otherwise would.

News From The Pollywog Cafe is also home to L.A. Haiku, the first and only site of its kind to bring wonderful, creative and entertaining Haiku (yes, that’s the plural of Haiku) and photos about the City of Los Angeles. You might find a Haiku about a favorite place or thing in or around L.A. — or you might discover new places and things. You never know, but stay tuned and check back often.

So wipe off your feet and come on it – you’re always welcome.  We hope you enjoy your time at the Cafe where the News is always (or almost always) fit to print, the customers are awesome and friendly, the service is great, the food is amazing, and the portions are as plentiful and tasty as your favorite Thanksgiving dinner.
