Picky eater (15 weeks pregnant) - looking for simple, comfort food

It's my wife's Bday tomorrow, but she's 15 weeks pregnant and her appetite/taste has changed significantly.

In fact, she likes the same food as my 5 year old nephew i.e. classic mac 'n cheese, buttered noodles, omelets, tomato soup. etc.

Where can I go (preferably on the Westside) to get this kind of food? Ammo had healthy comfort food, but the menu is now to shi shi.

          ooh, go to Pann's. I wish someone would take me!

            Even if all I wanted to eat was macaroni and cheese, if it was my birthday and my husband took me to Pann's, I'd be ticked. It's a coffee shop! The O.P. should take his wife somewhere nicer. And don't get me wrong, I actually like Pann's, but that's not the point.

              I go to John O Groats for my birthday and LOVE it. I rarely get to eat that kind of food. Diner food can be fabulous, and Pann's has amazing biscuits and gravy and other comfort foods.

        2. Why not check out Clementine? If you cannot go for an earlier dinner (they close early), then their takeout options are perfect comfort food.

          1. I like Luna Park for comfort food out of the house. Nook is also a good suggestion, but their menu is smaller.

              I vote for Upstairs2 above the Wine HOuse on Cotner. They specialize in small plates and they had such a variety on the menu that she'll be able to have choices.
              Also I love the Nook, but like the ambiance better at Upstairs2.
