Olive & Thyme, Melina and Christian Davies' new sandwich shop in downtown Toluca Lake, was mobbed from the day it opened, crowds moving through the place in odd yet precise paths, grabbing pour-over coffee made from Intelligentsia beans and chocolate-stuffed pastries imported from Valerie Confections in Hollywood, gathering salmon salad and lemony potato salad and bacon-spiked mac and cheese to take back to the office. There is a Middle Eastern twist to a lot of the food here: The toasted- bread salad fattoush is on the menu alongside the Cobb salad; the chicken sandwich comes with hummus and harissa. You can get a glass of Felsina Chianti or Belgian ale with your short rib sandwich or mezze platter. For breakfast, there's almond butter and jelly, breakfast panini and warm turnovers stuffed with ham, cheese and eggs.
