This cafe is in the town of San Pedro, not "Los Angeles" like the address states, please update!
This small local cafe has the best breakfast menu out there. All kinds of egg dishes to choose from, with a unique number of Benedicts, my fave...is a fresh spinach and crispy bacon one (its fab!!), or the filet, the traditional, the salmon... you name it! So it's the place to go for breakfast, which I believe is served thru lunch time too.
They have a great lunch business as the food is good value, a varied menu and more than plentiful. I go for dinner as they have a nice wine list ( and tap beers) and some imaginative specials. The special I had last week was fresh salmon patties (like a crab cake) over stir fried veggies, topped with 2 huge seared scallops with a spicy guac sauce. It was really good, tho I will say that carrots do not belong around seafood, they belong around pot roast and meat dishes. I know it's a cheaper alternative on the bottom line, but it stuck out like a sore thumb on this combo, not at all complimentary to the seafood... brocolli would have been a better choice. Let's dump the carrots, it's a bit cheapo, there must be an easy upgrade for a few pennies that will be embraced by all! Service is friendly and efficient most of the time. The caesar salad is the best around, great dressing chock with loads of fresh grated parmesan slices, yeah.. slices! YUM! Come hungry as you will have plenty of food to enjoy!
The ambience is rather lacking in cosiness/ warmth/ romanticity, ( is there such a word?) and is a bit spoiled by the lack of any consistent music in favor of the two TV's that are always on mute. It seems they often forget about adjusting the music for the customer that one would expect with a $26 steak. Not sure why this is!
Anyway I do think this is a little neiborhood gem, a few tweaks and it could be FANTASTIC!
