Breakfast + Brunch

CAFE MIDI ($$)
This is really good for both breakfast and lunch and I would try to get a table outside! If you can’t, the inside is really cute, too. Right in the middle of the restaurant is a fun furniture and home decor store and another cute boutique, American Rag. But back to the food… the menu is super, super, long, but honestly, everything is good. What I always order: the pancakes and two eggs combo with house potatoes for breakfast. If you go for lunch, they have the best tuna salad in their tuna melt quesadilla.
URTH CAFE ($$)
It is kind of basic, but it’s a classic and will never disappoint. Both the Melrose and Beverly Hills locations are great, it just depends on what area you want to be in at the time. I always order the smoked salmon bagel and a Spanish granita mild with almond milk and boba. Pro tip: they are known for their boba shakes so I would def get one!
CROFT ALLEY ($$$)
They make the most amazing soft scrambled eggs and avocado toast. Their delicious chocolate cookies are also worth getting, too. It’s in Melrose Place in a little alley behind Alfred’s coffee.
BLU JAM CAFE ($$)
Be sure to get the really yummy crunchy french toast. It’s delicious. They also cater and I had them do my 17th birthday brunch! LOL.
