Soda Pop’s on La Cienega is Ready for Lunch
Walking in you see custom-built wooden tables, benches and a bar, plus antique school chairs make this place look clean, but not severe. “It doesn’t have to be pretentious,” owner David Puopolo says. “It’s lunch.”
Still, Puopolo takes lunch seriously. Despite its quirky name (a play on the pronunciation of his last name, and a reference to the well-stocked fridge of obscure sodas), the restaurant’s hometown style is all in the lunch menu divided in to old and new school, ranging in price from $7-$12. Soda Pop’s is most definitely (and unpretentiously) ready for lunch.

Eats—Soda Pop’s Opens on La Cienega
Helmed by David Puopolo of Boston, this sandwich shop offers hot and cold subs(house-made chips included), a few choice salads and sweet treats (chocolate chip cookies are killer), and, of course, an array of soda pop, with most items around $8-$11. Artisan meats are sourced from Tama Trading and Pontrelli.
The interior is clean-lined in white and black with touches of red; benches, tables and even garbage receptacles are made from reclaimed wood from a lumberyard in the San Fernando Valley. There’s also a substantial parking lot in back.
You can count me in for the French Ham and Cheese (rosemary ham, camembert, cornichons, trappist apple mustard on baguette), or the B.E.L.T.A (applewood slab bacon, fried egg over easy, Boston lettuce, vine-ripe tomato, avocado and herb aioli on sourdough toast). Hours are Mon-Thurs 11-6, Fri-Sat 11-9 and Sun 11-6.
