  1. Do you know for sure it's open?

    1. Thought I'd revive this, since I didn't see any other mention of it on these boards? Has anyone been to this place on Washington Blvd, near Pacific?

        Well, just to update, I went there this weekend for brunch. It's in a high traffic tourist area, which, I suppose does make me wary, however the brunch was excellent, no wait for tables and the service was friendly and prompt. I had the caprese scramble, which was delicious with very fresh ripe tomatos and wonderful fresh mozzerella. It also came with some very nice thick whole wheat toast. My SO had the prosciutto frittta that will be a new favorite of his, with generous slicies of prosciutto layered over the top of the eggs. He did mention that the sausage had a strange texture, though.
        Our other friend ordered lunch, a tuna salad sandwich. Very basic and good, with a layer of tomatos and sliced apples on the sandwich. The pasta side salad was a little over done, though we still somehow finished it off.
        I also saw a number of salads going out that looked excellent, very fresh and what looked to be an interesting mix of ingredients.
        All in all, I wouldn't drive out of my way for it, but if you're heading to the beach, this is a really lovely breakfast/lunch stop that I do recommend.
