Breakfast/cafes in San Fernando Valley
I work in Northridge and sometimes have various meetings in the general area (Sherman Oaks, Pacoima, Burbank to name a few) and would love some breakfast or cafe ideas. I have read through the boards a bit but often lunch/dinner is mentioned and fewer early places. I live in South Bay so what that means is if I have to be in the valley in the morning, I leave really early and want somewhere to go during the 7-9 window before meetings. Any ideas for yummy, not-too-over-the-top fattening, veggie friendly, healthy food in the morning in the valley? (And an espresso that is not from Starbucks?)
Jinky's probably fits the bill, although you should be warned they get very crowded esp. on weekends. They have a branch called Studio Cafe on Colfax near Ventura Blvd. where Killer Shrimp used to be, but I haven't been there yet so I can't rec it.
Aroma Coffee & Tea in Tujunga Village (the block of Tujunga Ave. south of Moorpark in Studio City) opens at 6 am, heathy and veggie-friendly with a nice outdoor patio, but a little expensive.
