It’s hard to notice this restaurant if you’re just driving down Santa Monica Boulevard. Surrounded by pretty much nothing, this cafe is hard to spot but is one of the must-tries in Los Angeles. The only reason I found this cafe was when I spent one of my lazy weekend days on Yelp updating my bookmarks and adding restaurants to my “To Try” list.

Eat This Cafe serves every Saturday from 10 am – 3 pm and Sunday from 10 am – 4 pm. Although their pancakes look very appealing, I decided to go for one of the breakfast sandwiches today. To be completely honest, brunch food can start to get boring after one too many eggs benedicts or french toasts.

Happy Eating List

Truffle Cheese & Egg Panini: Heavenly. I asked to switch from the sourdough bread to the cranberry walnut bread. I loved the blend of everything in the sandwich that gave it a subtle truffle taste and although it is a savory sandwich, the balsamic glaze and the caramelized onions gave it a hint of sweetness that made the panini all the better.

Irish Turkey & Egg Panini: Layers and and even more unexpected layers of meat. This might be one of the paninis with the most layers of meat I've had in a while. The crunchy texture of the grilled cranberry walnut bread complemented with the soft layers of the turkey meat and cheese was a perfect blend of crunchiness and softness.

The bacon, of course, also added some magic to this panini.

Not So Happy List

Corned Beef Hash: After reading all the Yelp recommendations and tips about how amazing the corned beef hash was, I have to say I was a little disappointed. Perhaps it was more of a personal thing that my tastebuds just didn't find the beef hash too appealing.

One thing that really caught my attention was that the home fries were served with a spicy ketchup. Instead of asking for ketchup and hot sauce, they already blended the sauce for you.

Eat This Cafe definitely deserves another visit. Besides from going back for more brunch food, I also look forward to trying some of the dishes from its regular menu. They offer some healthier options on their regular menu, including a wide range of salad options.

Happy eating,
