San Fernando Valley-weekend breakfast

Early risers on Saturday and Sunday.

Looking for a non-chain cafe for breakfast.

Open to everything from northern Chinese to South African.

A full Monty English breakfast would be splendid, too.


CatHair is a Condiment in my house

        What's good to order at Nanay Gloria? It looks like a diner/dive :) which is a GOOD thing, sometimes :)

        But I enjoy most Filipino food.

          I usually just get tapsilog or longsilog. I prefer Good-Ha! because the eggs are made fresh.

      2. Robin Hood British Pub & Restaurant does full proper English breakfast, in Sherman Oaks.
        13640 Burbank Blvd
        Sherman Oaks, CA 91401

        For a good ol' American breakfast, we like Nat's Early Bite in Van Nuys, Hazeltine and Burbank.

          We love Nat's. The food is good. It's always busy. It's changed hands a few times but it's as good as evern.

            Nat's West Cafe, on Topanga Cyn. one block north of Roscoe, is as good as the store in Van Nuys -- maybe even a little better. Both have house-made sausage (spicy turkey), house-made jams, house-made salsa, and house-made muffins and cinnamon rolls. Since the early bird breakfast is not available on the weekend, my suggestion is the house special sausage benedict, but have them omit the English muffin (just put the eggs and Hollandaise right on top of the sausage patty) and substitute a dynamite cinnamon roll for the muffin -- same price. Home fries or hash browns? Both are excellent (order them very crisp, whichever you choose), and put a little of the salsa on them.

              Pretty sure they had their breakfast about seven years ago.....

                Hey! Breakfast is the most important meal of the decade!

          2. The Baker on Ventura Blvd. between Topanga and Canoga. They make the best challah in town and on Saturday they make challah french toast. I also really like their eggs with homemake harissa. All the breads and pastries are made on the premises and they are wonderful.

            1. I really love the omelettes at La Fogatta, on Van Nuys Blvd. Lovely and spicy Mexican fare with traditional American breakfast options, too. I highly recommend the Ranchero omelette.

                La Fogata has great breakfasts. You get your own free coffee refills! American or Mexican style, and this place will not have the wait that many other restaurants noted here will have on the weekends. Plus you cam read the paper and not get chased out! Great prices.

                    As Bob says above..on Van Nuys blvd just below Magnolia.
