Bluebird Cafe

8572 National Blvd.
Culver City , CA , United States
(310) 841-0939

An unexpected perk along a lonely stretch of warehouses in Culver City, this bakery's shaded patio and turquoise window frames are reminiscent of a friendly café in Mexico. Crayola-bright cupcakes - and lunches of tuna melts, meatloaf sandwiches, and chicken salad - tempt a crowd from nearby studios and production houses. Can't decide between blue, red, orange, green, white, or chocolate frosting? Try a handful of minis, then give in to ordering a full-size confection. The bakery only creates four flavors of cake - vanilla, chocolate, coconut, and red velevet - as well as catch-as-catch-can specials like pumpkin, banana, and lemon.
