I checked out the Bluebird Cafe in Culver City, tucked away on National Blvd, down by the Hayden Tract. Very cute and charming, with an covered outdoor patio, long banqette table and an open kitchen. They offer several salads, sandwiches, panini and cupcakes (!).
We shared a perfectly crisp (I always order them well done) Gruyere and prosciutto panini, along with a spinach and goat cheese salad.
I couldn't resist trying their red velvet cupcake - one of the best I have had. They frosted it with a thin, light, creamy, cream cheese frosting, much like Royal Icing. The cake was a beautiful dark red, baked to perfection. Much better than Susiscakes! They also offered carrot, lemon, vanilla and chocolate cupcakes.
