favorite brunch places in studio city and environs?
Hi Hounds --
Hugos, Jinky's I know.
Don't like Marmalade...
Brunch/lunch...for tomorrow (Saturday).
...matzo brei... with SALAMI? My mind boggles. I may have to go just to see matzo brei served with pork.
I like Vivian's Millennium Cafe (Ventura just east of Vineland) myself, though it gets crowded... and if you can make it out to Tarzana, Aroma Cafe (no relation to the Silverlake or Studio City ones) has a lot of really interesting choices. Just be prepared for the dominant language to be Hebrew, not English or Spanish.

I would guess matzo brei would be made with Hebrew National salami, all beef. But I've never had it at Nat's, so it's just a guess. Actually I've never had matzo brei with salami, just salami and eggs. But I digress....
I am a big fan of Jumpin' Java. I always like the food. I also like Ned's on Magnolia, which is a little edgier, but sometimes I'm in the mood for that.
Love Nat's Early Bite - tried it for the first time a few weeks ago. It can get crowded though, so go early. It looks like a greasy spoon kind of place, but it was surprisingly good.
Other places I've gone lately:
- Four N 20 on Van Nuys and Burbank. Good muffins.
- Le Pain Quontidien on Ventura near Coldwater. I like their quiche, but the coffee is terrible
Personally, I think Stanley breakfast food menu is weak but their lunch selections nice, especially the salads. However, I agree that if you do go, insist on sitting on the patio, and wait if necessary.
Not sure if anyone has been, but Caioti Pizza Cafe serves breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays. I haven't been but the selections look good.

We love Aroma on Tujunga, just south of Moorpark (across the street from the infamous Vitello's). The Eggs Aroma on the spinach knish sort of thing is great. Very relaxed neighborhood hang - highly recommend it.
