For nearly a year and a half now, the way our business functioned on a day-to-day basis was dictated by the measures necessary to keep everyone pandemic safe. As more Californians become vaccinated, and as our state begins to fully open up, I have found it such a relief and joy to have our entire team back working together in our offices.

It has also been such a great reminder of the great local businesses in our area. Among my absolute favorites is Lou, The French on the Block, a delightful patisserie café on Riverside Drive and Pass Avenue in Burbank. Chef Laurent and his wife Karima serve up exceptional coffee drinks and traditional French pastries. Any day that starts with something from Lou’s always seems to turn out splendid. I recommend Lou’s to clients and friends alike.
