About US

Forkin Good Cafe opened in August 2014, and is located in historic Uptown Whittier. Since its inception, award-winning celebrity chef, Chef Denise Portillo, has been serving both quality interpretations of classic dishes with daring new ventures into the uncharted territories of food -- all with a touch of hispanic flair and organic, health conscious considerations..

The interior of this quaint cafe and restaurant hybrid was designed by Chef Denise herself, and it reflects the hip sensibilities of West Los Angeles while also paying tribute to the vintage small town of Whittier.
