Eater LA reports that Tartine’s first foray down South is a cafe, now open in the new Fred Segal space on Sunset Boulevard. It’s offering coffee from Coffee Manufactory, plus the promise of food down the line. This is a precursor to next year’s opening of LA’s own Tartine Manufactory, which will be bigger than SF’s flagship.
