Great Place for breakfast. I can't get over the crunchy french toast is unique. Good service, fresh quality products and great selection of dishes.

This place is adorable. If you don't come early, there will be a bit of a wait especially on weekends but it's worth the wait. The music and food is a perfect blend.

A weekend breakfast at the Blu Jam in Hollywood (the original location) was relaxing, delicious and fun. There is sidewalk seating plus the inside is divided into two separate rooms. We were seated in the right side room, which gives you spacious seating, low noise, soft jazz and blues and a nice decor. It appeared that the left-hand inside seating... More

The prices here are stupid to be exactl! Th wrench toast was good, not great. I get the same French toast anywhere that makes French toast. The only difference is the vanilla cream they serve with it. There is a risotto dish on the menu that is way worth the visit. It soo good. There's a few other things here... More

Blu Jam is a nice place for breakfast with outdoor seating, friendly staff and great food. The regular french toast is excellent the brioche bread is crispy on the outside and soft inside with toss of powdered sugar and fresh fruit. Simple, yet good! Their omelets and garden sandwich were delicious as well.

Located in West Hollywood, Blu Jam Cafe seems to be a breakfast hot spot. Early is better because it's not long before a line begins to form outside. Recently I had the steel cut oatmeal and it was delicious. On a previous visit, I had a tasty made to order omelet. The menu choices are ample. After breakfast, it's an... More

I wanted to eat everything on the menu! Highly recommended. Restaurant has small area with outdoor seating. Visited during the week and did not have to wait for a table, but observed a long line when I drove by the following Saturday.

Went mid-week for breakfast so the restaurant wasn't too busy. The service was attentive and our drinks and meals came quickly. The portions are great for the price and so delicious! My partner tried the Roma Via Paris which he thoroughly enjoyed and I had the spicy tex mex tofu hash which was very filling and delicious. My partner later... More

I really enjoyed the wide range of items on the menu, it wasn't too crowded. I ordered a traditional benedict which I rarely do as I am usually disappointed in the hollandaise sauce. This restaurant did not disappoint, the hollandaise was almost made perfectly...maybe a little more lemon..but it was made with real buttter and eggs unlike most restaurants. I... More
