Great spot in LA

I saw the huge que one day whilst shopping, the following day i went to see what all the fuse was about, and i wasn't disappointed. Yes we waited outside but it was a nice day and we got outside seats. Great service and great french toast. Chef kamil is a genius

This restaurant only takes one visit to make me a lifetime customer. I do go somewhere else for brunch, but only when I do not have the time to wait in the line for up to an hour. Yes, there is ALWAYS a line unless you arrive there at 8 a.m.. However, you don’t have to stand there while waiting.... More

Arrived early and was seated w/about 9 other patrons as it opened on a Wednesday. Went w/the burgundy omelette, greens & wheat toast. Perfect! It was one of those situations when about 2O different things look great on the menu & you're hesitant about narrowing it down. The omelette came out quickly, was hot & didn't disappoint. I washed it... More

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
