This Brentwood gem boasts a menu brimming with light and hearty fare. It's order at the counter service here (they bring the food to your table) and the atmosphere is LA casual with high ceilings, storefront windows, honey wood floors, and an overall European feel. This is the type of place we all wish we had in our hood--big menu with an emphasis on organic ingredients, upscale preparations, lots of veggies and plenty of protein. For those in a rush, the Cafe offers a feature that allows ordering online in advance for a quick pickup.
The breakfast menu will likely please all eaters with egg white, low-carb and organic cereal options for the calorie counters to decadent pancakes, French toast and scrambles for those looking to chow. Highlights include the smoked salmon plate, "hi-pro" breakfast (chicken breast, egg whites and brown rice), breakfast burrito, parfait bowl, stuffed brioche French toast, chocolate chip pancakes and the creative breakfast paninos. The lunch/dinner menu offers a big selection of sandwiches (roast turkey, caprese, turkey meatloaf, grilled veggie and rosemary chicken), paninis (chicken, steak, tuna, veggie), and pastas--but only after 3 pm on weekends. Soups and about 9 different upscale salads, including an Ahi Nicoise, steak salad, mixed greens with grilled chicken and a Tuscan baby spinach salad, complete the menu. Oh, and each day there are breakfast, lunch and dinner specials. Recent examples include a veggie frittata, chocolate cherry French toast, Wagyu beef Greek burger, fusilli pesto pasta with grilled chicken and grilled mahi-mahi.
