Walked in and find 4LA cops having breakfast, and i knew i stumbled into the right place. Stopped in for breakfast. The waitress talked me into having chicken kabob. Very good recommendation. Chicken was tender and we'll marinated. The veggies were cooked to perfection. Wait staff was friendly. Portion was huge. Not sure who consumes that much food. Nice place.

This place has great food and lots of options. The breakfast scramble is awesome. You can sit inside at a table or a bar. You can also sit outside and people watch. Service was great.

Cute little restaurant. Nice outdoor tables to people watch. Good chicken kabobs. Selections also include soups, salads, paninis & entrees. Observing what most customers were ordering, I'd say the kabobs seemed to be a favorite.

Chicken kabob is really good here, it's definitely what I would recommend. And considering the fact that it costs $9.95 only, I would say that's a great place dinner.

Great portion size, delicious food and fun atmosphere! Definitely will return here again! Parking was a bit tricky but we parked at the Ralph's across the street and bought some groceries after we ate to validate our parking.

So many things to choose from on their great menu. Salads and kebabs are always great. Friendly service and comfortable atmosphere. Patio offers a pleasant seating area to dine and have fun.
