Taking inspiration from daily newspapers, Chronicle wants to be there for you all day everyday. This cute eatery’s pedigree includes the upscale eatery Wilshire and highly regarded coffee house Common Grounds, so you know their signatures (great coffee, innovative cocktails, and tasty all-day dining) is going to be spot on! Not sure where to get started? We asked Hanna and Yoshi, the dynamic duo behind Chronicle, for their recommendations on how to make Chronicle your daily go-to.

What would you recommend for …


a Sunday brunch with mom?

The Sorbet Mimosa and the Chronicle Benedict. Think of the classic champagne cocktail with a cool twist and a tasty brunch standard. We also recommend bringing a sibling so that you can shift the focus when big “Why are you still single?” conversation comes up!

Definitely the Espresso Martini. It’s the perfect combination of coffee and tequila, which also happens to be the key to marathon gossip sessions.

A Macchiato and a slice of freshly baked cake will get you back in the game. Or opt for an Irish Coffee, if it’s that kind of day.

Go with the Chicken Marengo, with our take on a classic French dish that combines chicken, shrimp, and toast.

Treat yo’ self to a Lobster Roll and Gold Rush cocktail, it’s got cognac and champagne. If you’re going to treat yourself, do it right!
