Breakfast Near The Festival of Books

chow_now Apr 20, 2008 09:07 AM

Hello, fellow Chowhounds!

Me, my boyfriend and my father would like to have a sitdown breakfast somewhere near the Festival site before we go in. We will be attending on Sunday the 27th.

We're coming from Thousand Oaks.

Thanks so much for any and all suggestions.

    If you don't want to eat on UCLA campus, you can just walk down to Westwood village. There are no incredibly good breakfast places, but there's Corner Bakery cafe on Westwood blvd, Jerry's Deli on Weyburn, etc

    Or if you want to stop by when you're driving, you can take the other Wilshire exit to San Vicente and go to Coral Tree Cafe

      I recommend Novel Cafe for breakfast -- good omelets, lots of fresh and organic food.

      Novel Cafe
      1101 Gayley Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90024

        Forget the eggs, organic-this and healthy-that and go for the gold: Stan's Donuts.

          Fine, but only if they get the Reese's Peanut Butter Pocket.

          if your going down the 101, I would reccomend maybe breakfasting somewhere on Ventura in the Valley.

          Aroma bakery and Cafe in Encino
          Cici's in Tarzana
          Coral tree Cafe in Encino (sorta sit down)
