The inside of 40 Love Café feels like a food court, the outside just the tiniest bit like Wimbledon courtside.
Within the Burbank Tennis Center, the café's interior is all large white floor tiles and pinkish walls, with the tables and white tubular chairs you've seen inside countless malls. But step outside and you're in the world of tennis whites, with al fresco seating at café tables overlooking an immaculate court. Kudos to the tennis student brave enough to schedule a lesson at midday, when the tables are full with the lunchtime crowd. With the court in the foreground and the mountains in the background, the shaded tables are a welcome respite from the workaday world, or even just from the playground at McCambridge Park.
40 Love Café's menu serves up the burgers and fries you'd expect from a concession at a public park. But it hits an ace with its Thai food.
