Despite a few recent losses in the Röckenwagner universe, things are still relatively great at 3 Square Cafe on Abbot Kinney in Venice. So much so, in fact, that the longtime breakfast and lunch spot is expanding into the dinner market.
Beginning on Thursday, 3 Square is stretching out its hours to 10 p.m. (it used to close by 4 p.m. daily), and angling for that all-important casual diner dollar. The well-known pretzel bun burgers that Röckenwagner has always leaned on will of course form the back bone of the menu, with a few funky new alternatives like salmon and boneless pork rib meat instead of a casual beef patty. Hefty sides like mac n’ cheese and avocado fries round out the meals, with pies (of course there would be sweets involved) standing in for dessert.
Coming up on its first decade in business, 3 Square Cafe remains an Abbot Kinney institution now serving three square meals per day, as its name suggests. Hours will run from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.
