Originally envisioned as a commissary kitchen for Gjelina, Gjusta has evolved into a powerhouse, offering the Southern California brunch to end all brunches. The indoor-outdoor marketplace and cafe effortlessly traverses between traditional Ashkenazi appetizing (bagels, pastrami, smoked fish aplenty) and pan Mediterranean fare (falafel, tuna conserva, flatbread pizzas), with the occasional excellent diversion into east Asia (banh mi, salmon rice bowls), plus an array of seasonal pastries and desserts.

An intimate outdoor dining room tucked behind the bakery offers seating for up to twenty.

The garden courtyard, replete with a wood burning pizza oven, a cluster of olive trees, and oversized terracotta planters, is an adaptable space seating up to 50 guests.
