Found it by accident. Great food and service. Right on Ventura Blvd. Order the pancakes.

        It's between Wilbur and Vanalden. I believe it's in the center with the El Paso BBQ.

          I want to reiterate that it's in Tarzana, not Encino. We like it. Large menu, friendly service and pretty good food! Only open for breakfast and lunch.

          I really want to like this place. I remember the owner from her days at Jinky's, she's friends with an aquaintance of mine, the menu seems promising...but every time, I'm let down and it's frustrating, especially considering the prices. The potatoes aren't so great, the hash is kind of awful and the pancakes were heavy and bready and not very tasty. I did, however, enjoy the florentine benedict.

            cici's. Let me see where do i start how bout 2.50 for coffee or how bout the horrible service. I've been going there off and on for about a year and the nfood is pretty good but i just cant get over how impersonal the service is not to mention how slow it is. the little cafe jusyt east on ventura blvd. is comparable and cheaper with much better service.
