Great spot for Breakfast!

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... read 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

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

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!
