Strings of Life

An all-day, Australian-inspired neighbourhood café serving up a menu full of Aussie classics and a laid-back vibe.

Strings of Life is joining the ranks of other Australian-style cafés in Southern California such as Ministry of Coffee in Westwood, Roo Coffee in Silver Lake, Bluestone Lane in Studio City, and Bondi Harvest in Culver City. Owned and operated by the E.P. & L.P. team, Grant Smillie and David Combes of Botanical Hospitality Group - the Aussie-style café - complete with hipster aesthetic - got its name from electronic musician Derrick May’s track, Strings of Life.

Drawing upon Melbourne and Sydney café culture - this indoor and outdoor space off of Melrose - delivers all-day delicious, Antipodean-inspired, imaginative food and cocktails and plenty of laid back vibes. Heading up the kitchen is husband and wife Monty and Jaci Koludrovic - previously of Icebergs Dining Room and Bar and the Dolphin Hotel in Sydney. Expect a highly approachable menu includes neighborhood standards like breakfast burritos, avocado toast, rice bowls, and chopped salads, along with a handful of globally inspired dishes.

Open daily, from 7am to 4pm.
