  • Jacks N Joe

    Jacks N Joe - Restaurant in Los Angeles.
    Feb 2, 2013 Pancake Heaven "Located conveniently near USC, Jacks N Joe offers a wide range of breakfast options to choose from like different types of pancakes and omelettes. The names of the dishes are extremely eye catching and unforgettable as well. Who's ever heard of a pancake called "WTF?!" or an omelette called "Maui Wowie"? The owner and former USC graduate has a good sense of humor and style. That is to say, the decor and ambience of the restaurant is modern, simple, and elegant, unlike the immediate surrounding neighbourhood of USC. I've tried the Tree Huggers pancake, thinking I'd go with one of the healthier options, but oh boy, the thing was huge! It came with 3 large buckwheat pancakes with granola, fresh fruit, and orange butter sprinkled on top. My image of a healthy fit body probably went out of the window, but it was definitely worth it. Both my stomach and wallet was happy with what I was paying, and thanks to the fresh fruits and granola on top of the pancake, I didn't get sick of eating it even after 1 big pancake. Jack N Joes is a place I would like to go back to, to try other items on their menu, like the "My Big Fat Greek" omelette!" hide

  • Urth Caffé (Downtown)

    Urth Caffé (Downtown) - Café | Restaurant in Los Angeles.
    Feb 2, 2013 The Cafe for Everybody "The Urth Caffe in Downtown is located in an area where you least expect it. I remember I looked around a couple of times to check whether I was in the right place or not. As I turned onto Hewitt street, I saw the hipster looking hidden gem. There is not a day where you don't see a waiting line extending from the cashier. But don't let that throw you off - it moves fairly quickly. Urth Caffe offers both a Breakfast menu and a Lunch/Dinner menu placed right by the entrance, so you can ponder and think about the amazing dish you are about to devour. I must say, Urth Caffe is also a heaven for dessert lovers. They display a variety of cheesecakes and pastries right by the cashier that it makes it so irresistible not to look at it and wonder if you should get one. The different types of coffee they serve is a must get. Not only is it delicious but the baristas engage in latte art and draw a little something for you to enjoy looking at. That's not to say their food doesn't live up to the quality of their drinks. I've ordered a couple of items from there, including the organic oatmeal, panini portabella, and a chopped grilled chicken breast with pesto salad, but they have all been a great hit. With fresh and organic ingredients, what can go wrong? Urth Caffe kills two birds with one stone - it makes both your stomach and environment happy!" hide
