Great Food, Great Menu

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... read more

We took our brother here for a birthday breakfast and were not disappointed by the food. The wait was a little long for a weekday morning, but we didn't have to be anywhere so it was ok. The food took a while too, but was worth the wait. We tried the recommended Crusted French toast and the blue jam benedict... More

Get there early around 9:00 AM before the lines form outside... That's also when the parking meters on Melrose become operational. Before that there is no parking on the street. We had a delicious off-beat breakfast of French toast and an omelet combination. A special blend of different fruits and vegetable juice topped off our morning meal. Coffee was delicious.... More

We've been to this place for breakfast several times. In short, everything is very good. Service is very friendly and helpful. Lattes are very good and if you're drinking regular/decaf, the staff is around to freshen your cup. We like the rancheros, california omlet, another egg dish called migas which is a combination of scrambled eggs, jalapeños, spicy chorizo, tortillas....mmm.... More

They had breakfast and lunch items at brunch which i loved. The cobb salad was great. This place has a long wait list on the weekends for brunch so be ready.

Went for an early brunch with my family and ended up stuffed to the max. This place has amazing breakfast dishes and don't forget the famous crunchy French toast to complete a delightful morning out.

Other than masturbation, Blu Jam was one the most pleasurable discoveries to date. I wanted everything on the menu. I ultimately chose the "Chef's Special" Cuban pork sandwich...or something similar in description. It did not disappoint, and I'm pretty sure they sent that empty plate back to the kitchen with some ceramic scraped from it. Go here now, damn it!

This small restaurant opened up in Sherman Oaks. They always have a line during prime eating times, but if you go for an early lunch you can usually get in. They server breakfast all day. I loved the crispy french toast with the vanilla sauce. Some of the best I have ever had. They have a nice outdoor eating area.... More

Lovely breakfast all day long. Don't bother with anything else. The patio is charming for it's view, especially at sunset. Service was fast too. A great place to rest after some shopping around.

Went for Sunday brunch with friends. There was 6 of us, so the wait was about 30-45 minutes. Not bad considering how many people were waiting outside, and we had a large table. We went to the bar next door for some mimosas, which passed the time quickly (they don't serve alcohol at Blu Jam). I had the breakfast burger... More
