Breakfast in the Valley
We do a quarterly family breakfast, and it's my turn to pick. I've been to CeCe's, Jinky's, Hugo's, and the Waffle House --all good, but we want to expand the rotation, and at the same time, not end up at Jerry's or Denny's (you get the picture).
Most of the group is fairly unadventurous, and looking for a place to get good bacon, good pancakes, or a good omelette -- hashbrowns, a plus. Basically good standards. If you have any suggestions to expand our horizon -- in the West Valley, we'd appreciate it. Thanks in advance.
I like breakfast at the Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas. We do it some Saturdays and hit the farmers market across the street before or after. Nothing fancy - basic eggs, omelets, waffles, etc. Lots of patio seating if it is a nice day.
We have a standing breakfast date every Saturday with my in-laws and kids, so we're pleasing a lot of palates.
Lately, we've been enjoying Nona in Tarzana - it's a little pricey for what it is, and the service is super slow (especially since it's not terribly crowded), but the food is really good and it's a nice place to sit and enjoy, especially for the West Valley.
Another slightly overpriced but reliable standard is The Farm at Westfield Topanga.The service is faster than Nona, but not 100% stellar.
Villa Piacere in Woodland Hills has a nice Sunday brunch (not buffet), slow service, quiet but pretty room, a little expensive, too, but good food.
Outside of that, we rotate between The Baker, Nico's Coffee Shop, Coral Tree Cafe, Marmalade, The Stand, Aroma, and Nat's Early Bite.
