my girlfriend and i were hanging out in westwood for the weekend w/ my UCLA cousin. the bakery was randomly recommend by a passer by when we were trying to find another restaurant. we just wanted a nice breakfast place and we did. its not like the IVY or super chic. but it has wonderful and CHEAP breakfast. $4.50 for 2 eggs/bac or sauge or ham/hashbrowns and toast. its a great place to come after a night of partying because you can dine outside and be loud and people watch. its a wonderful bakery too. if you are on a diet do not look at the desserts!!!!!
i used to go here about once a week while attending ucla. they have a good selection of breakfasts. but i always end up ordering the healthy elysee (egg whites omelette with vegetables - very good). their pastries are very yuuuum. space is tight.
Even though this is technically a bakery above everything else, the food here is outstanding as well. Try the eggplant lasagna, any of their daily hot lunch specials, or their french breakfast plates served all day long. Then finish it off with any of the fresh pastries or cookies. Especially the opera cake, chocolate mousse cannoli, or fruit tarts.
