We know you haven’t been to Café de Japon because we never see you there. You probably pass it on Spring Mountain all the time—it’s the one with the faux mile markers to LA—not even knowing it’s one of only a handful of kissatens, or Japanese coffeehouses, in the States. Owner Kiichi-san is tired of seeing us, so it’s your turn to try his unique selection of outstanding quasi-American/Asian dishes. 5300 Spring Mountain Road #101, 839-8688. Mon-Thu, noon-midnight; Fri-Sat, noon-2 a.m.
