This trendy cafe caters to a hip LA crowd, but is unpretentious with its friendly service, casual wood tables and chairs and storefront space with ample windows. Montana Avenue is home to a number of cafes, coffee shops and upscale boutiques and offers a more local dinning/shopping experience over the touristy 3rd Street Promenade.
The California inspired cuisine served here will satisfy light and hearty eaters. Breakfast offers fresh fruit, cereals, eggs and omelets (egg white option and can sub cottage cheese for potatoes), as well as pancakes, waffles and French toast. The "protein scramble" consists of egg whites, chicken breast, spinach, tomato, and feta. The side selection is plentiful and will please customizers (ham, cottage cheese, yogurt, baked goods, eggs, chicken breast etc.). The lunch menu is equally balanced with grilled free-range chicken breast, fish, gourmet entrée salads and veggie heavy sandwiches. Heartier fare includes quesadillas, pastas, burgers and a prime rib sandwich. The dinner menu resembles lunch's but adds additional pastas and entrée selections such as New York steak, garlic prawns and chicken marsala. Salads, a seared ahi appetizer, fresh spring rolls and the grilled chicken are other dinner possibilities.
Open daily 8 am to 10 pm (closes b/w lunch and dinner). Weekend brunch menu Sat/Sun 11a to 3p.
