Le Village Café in Malibu
Recently, I attended a fun foodie event at The Vintage Grocers and afterwards, Le Village Café hosted us for a lovely lunch and wine tasting.
I enjoyed it so much that I want to tell you all about it. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

How is the food at Le Village Café in Malibu?
The food was delicious. We started off with some flat bread’s that were outstanding.
For our main we had the trout with steamed vegetables. Being raised in New England, I can be pretty picky with seafood dishes. I have to say that this Trout was perfectly done. Nice and light, just how I like it, without all of the heavy oils and spices. The flavor was fantastic and the lightly steamed vegetables that accompanied it were delish! Clean eating at its finest!
Desert was next –
See that guy? Look for him when you visit next and ask for his streusel. He makes a few different kinds that are his own recipe and let me tell you…. It is like a little piece of heaven in your mouth!! I will bring my family back here just to eat this…!!!
How is the wine list at Le Village Café in Malibu?
Very good. Along with local labels, they have a very thoughtful list of wines that, when appropriately paired, will enhance your meal and experience there.
The staff is friendly so don’t be afraid to ask for their suggestions!
All in all, I had a really great time at this restaurant. The food was great, the service was good and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming.
I look forward to visiting again!
