Not crowded when we got there at 9:00 on a weekday but filled up around 10:00. The food was great and the service was good. Huge omelets. Seemed like lots of locals there.

Blu Jam was near the top of our must do list for our LA holiday. Due to jet lag we were all awake and starving by 4AM on the first day so we counted down the hours to the 8AM opening time. We were first to the door about 10 minutes before opening and received a lukewarm reception. However, upon... More

It was late morning, and we still hadn't had breakfast...we had started the morning at a diner whose menu ended up dissapointing, and we only had coffee and left. So, I found thiss place and their menu touted the availabilty of breakfast all day. Off we went. I found free parking on the side street and we put our name... More

SO good. Everything is delish but get the crispy French toast. it's to die for. Huevos Rancheros are also a fave. Their fresh juices are made to order too. Try Kamil's favorite.

We love brunch and did some searching for a delicious brunch in LA. Blu Jam was good, but not great. Everything was quite tasty, but nothing wowed. The place was really busy and we waited about 20 minutes, which wasn't too bad for brunch. The server forgot my juice and then charged us for it, but took it off the... More

Wandering around Melrose we stumbled on Blu Jam - a busy restaurant was a good sign. Sat outside to take in the Melrose vibe. Great food, good portions, really friendly service. Awesome find and one of the best cafes we went to in LA. Recommended.

If you are the kind of person that likes having breakfast for dinner, this is the place for you. Running errands in the neighborhood, I had to stop at the place that had a line of people waiting for a table that included a recognizable actress (no priority service here). I had their 'signature', which is a crispy french toast,... More

Very good choice for a brunch in holiday. The toast is a must-try and the coffee is a surprise. Bad things: 1. always have to wait; 2. parking

This restaurant has a reputation of being one of the best in the LA area, so we had to try it out. Thankfully we arrived early enough that we were seated right away. The restaurant really gives you a hip/chic LA kind of vibe. Tea presses, unique menu options. I had their infamous crunchy french toast, which was perfectly done.... More
