Van Nuys/Sherman Oaks Breakfast w/ Really Good Coffee?

FranklinJefferson Dec 5, 2011 09:18 AM

Looking for some place in the area with a good cup. Would prefer something more ethnic than can be found at King's Road or Sweet Butter. Any thoughts?

    The Mexican omelettes at La Fogata, on Van Nuys Blvd. at Magnolia are as good as they come. My wife likes their coffee but me, not so much.

      Ethnic & good coffee seem like an oxymoron.
      Can't think of any place that satisfies both criteria.
      Nat's Early Bite has a good breakfast, but their coffee tends toward the nasty side, probably not unlike Bob's opinion regarding Fogata's coffee.

        Crave Cafe, a crepe place, has great coffee. And we like the cuban coffee at Versailles.

          But is Versailles open for breakfast?

            If I was looking for good breakfast with good coffee I would probably go to John O'Groat's in Encino.
