Farid Zadi Starts All-Day Breakfast at Cafe Livre et Le Marche

From top, two-egg croissant sandwich with lomo; rolled omelette stuffed with spinach and goat cheese; and French omelette with aged gouda and salmon.

It's time for scrambled duck eggs and "Ludo's Lunch," as chef Farid Zadi lets us know that his Culver City restaurant, Cafe Livre et Le Marche, is now serving breakfast all-day, from 8:00 A.M. all the way to 6:00 P.M., daily. The selection is seductive, with offers like two eggs on a crossaint sandwich with vegetables and lomo, rolled and stuffed omelets, duck confit with twice-fried fries, and daily specials where guests can build their own protein and side dish combo for fourteen dollars. Of course, all breads and pastries, whether served as ciabatta or baguette for sandwiches, or in the array of croissants, scones, or pies, is baked fresh daily. Check out Zadi's full breakfast menu below, including a massive veggie plate titled "Ludo's Lunch" and a plate of duck prepared three ways under the title "The Quack."
