The Skinny: Parking: on the street, good luck Decor: think French pantry Restroom: clean single Service: friendly Food: really tasty This place really is a great neighborhood spot but man does it get busy at lunch! We had to park a few streets away and barely got a table to sit at. You order at the counter and they ring... More

Staying in the Valley for spring break our hotel recommended this place for breakfast. We sat at the community table which was quite enjoyable. Order at the counter and food and coffee is brought to you at the table. The coffee, while expensive, was terrific. If I recall correctly they have Four Barrel coffee. The breakfast menu was limited (no... More

If you enjoy fresh, plentiful, delicious food, this is the place. You order at the register, find a table and they bring your food. I love their kale salad and the trio salads from the case.

My husband and I ate here while staying in Burbank. Its a great spot , very friendly staff and our order was taken care of very efficiently. We both had sandwiches which were fresh and delicious with fresh herbs added to the greens. My husband had a salad which was very large and filled with good things like beans slivers... More

The menu is small but the choices are fresh and flavorful. I picked up a to-go lunch and was able to make healthy selections. They have lots of salads and I chose a combo of three -- quinoa salad, raw corn salad and Brussels sprouts. Delicious!

This place is a total gem. Whilst the menu isn't the largest i've seen, the food is truly excellent. The steak salad is one particular favourite of mine. And their dessert selection is just fantastic. Highly recommended.

Wonderful small cheese shop that also has amazing sandwiches, salads and soups. Boutique-y store with some great things for sale (gourmet baking ingredients, etc.) plus an amazing cheese expert, Tyler, who can help you try some delicious new cheeses that you might otherwise never try.

This is the perfect spot for a quick bite. The food is delicious, lots of variety in the salad case, and interesting desserts. We are never disappointed and have been here for breakfast on the weekends, weekday lunches and a few evening dinners. The menu isn't huge, but that means everything they serve is well thought out and perfectly executed.... More

Being a coffee addict, this place delivered. The food and the coffee were excellent (try the bowl of oatmeal) and just looking at the cakes and cookies are enough to tempt! Within 2 days they had my order perfected and was just like heading into my local home coffee shop. Highly recommended!

O&T has beautiful salads and delicious sandwiches, while offering a wide variety of little gifts and kitchen delights. It is very close to my office, and I end up having lunch there at least 3 times a week. It can get busy around lunch time, so you may want to order ahead. It is a little pricey, but def. fully...
