We met back in 2012 while working in a restaurant in Downtown Los Angeles.  Peter cooked, and Lauren served.  We soon started dating and eventually were married.  Through our love for each other and our shared love of food and service, we decided to pursue our dream of having our own place.  It was not an easy road, but we finally opened our doors on December 5th, 2015.  It has been an amazing ride since then, and we look forward to meeting new folks as well as growing in the friendships we have gained opening Wax Paper.  

We thank you for dining with us, and it is our pleasure to serve you.  

Sincerely, Peter & Lauren Lemos


Wax Paper evolved from our dream of opening a simple, but delicious neighborhood sandwich shop.  It is a place of warmth, comfort, and creativity. Our menu features homemade sandwiches, salads, and sides with an array of beverages including fresh-brewed coffee & tea and real sodas. We are dedicated to respecting our Earth's resources, and we take every possible measure to uphold our responsibility toward our environment. Our main goal is to provide the community with a place where its members can eat, drink, relax, relate, and create...a place of happiness and the feeling of being

at home.
