Three Square Café + Bakery
Hans Rockenwagner brings 30 years of cooking experience in Germany, Switzerland, Chicago, and Los Angeles to this small café and bakery in Venice. Given his background, it’s no surprise that many of the items on the menu derive from Europe before he adds his American twists. The pretzel bread cheeseburger stands out as the local favorite. The cafe serves more than just a mean burger; there are egg concoctions for breakfast, unusual sides like avocado fries, and artisan salads. The bakery offers up fresh-made breads, elaborate scones, fruit strudels, and savory options like baked jalapeno and cheese bread.
