Breakfast in Sunland?

It doesn't have to be fancy, but tasty is preferable...
o.k.. here's the gig...I keep my horse stabled in Shadow Hills. There's a place that the locals frequent called the Rise and Shine at the corner of Wheatland and Sunland Blvds. Not a greasy spoon, but very low profile except to the locals who've been going there forever. If you didn't know better, you'd probably pass on going in. It's hardly noticeable from the outside, not to mention located next to a liquor mart. I like it, good service, clean, and fine for breakfast,... but... if you don't ride a horse, reek of horse, or have even a remote dislike for horses, you may really really feel outta your element. So yes, Sunland has breakfast places. If you go, I've at least prepared you...
My preferred breakfast spot is Jeremy's, actually in La Crescenta, but fwy. close...pop onto the 210, head west, exit at Pennsylvania, head south to the bottom of the hill... as it curves s/e it's at the corner of Ramsdell and Honolulu. Great breakfast, omelets, pancakes, etc., including a great salsa with the huevos rancheros. Very friendly, locals and families, counter service too...and a horse isn't a prereq.
I've tried a few places along Foothill in Sunland/Tujunga, on the stretch between Mt. Gleason and Sherman Grove but none were worth going back (either bleh food or lousy service).
P.S. The place just east of Rise and Shine has changed names at least three times in the last few years... avoid it...it's ???? Bistro now...it was awful when I went there during the last two name changes, no telling what it's like now and whether it's under new ownership or just flipping names again.
