Great food, great service. Healthy and none healthy all tasted great. Its just that the place looks and feels rundown, but definitely doesn't reflect on the food experience or quality. Was there regularly while here.

Lunch was a bit of a wait on a Sunday, but we were surprised at what a varied menu there was. It looks like their aim is healthy, good food, and they achieve it. There are a lot of vegetarian vegan, and gluten free options. I can see why it's such a popular spot. Their parking lot was full, but... More

They give the option of making anything on the menu vegan. Plenty of menu options. Friendly staff. The food was pretty good but not the best ever. I'd recommend it overall.

Second time here and we still didn't have much that we thought was great. We're probably not the right group, but if you enjoy the healthier menus this place would probably be ideal. Seems quite popular.

We stopped in for an early dinner in this very convenient restaurant, right off the 101 in Valley Village. The healthy menu was a welcome surprise and the service was helpful and attentive. Many dishes featured chicken breast in some form but there were also veggie, vegan, and turkey alternatives to choose from. Burgers are hearty and come with a... More

I had the special Plato Del Alma that was a grilled chicken breast (could have been tofu or a veggie patty) served with a grilled 1/2 romaine lettuce drizzled with honey chipotle, the inside of a tamale, a tomato/avocado salad stuffed into a fried portobello mushroom cap and fried platanos. The chicken breast was very flat and grilled well, but... More

Went here for breakfast today. Coffee was good. Cinnamon French toast was bomb. Sticky buns were not what I expected but still great. Husband got eggs Benedict and devoured the whole thing so I guess he liked it ;)

Our son, who lives close by brought us to Hugo's on our recent trip to L.A. Very interesting menu, great food and service. They had the kind of stuff you would only find in L.A. My wife and I really enjoyed eating here.

Went here for the first time and LOVED it! I got the eggs and tamales and they were delicious!! I was stuffed for the entire day and the price was very reasonable for the amount of food we got. We also had one member of our group who has a lot of food allergies and she was able to find... More
