yummy breakfast in LA

I miss LA...

Like really miss it. It probably doesn't help that I have watched a bizzilion 'Hills' episodes over the past few days, and I am growing increasingly jealous of the amazing weather and all those palm trees. Anyway I am going to revisit my trip to LA in a bit more detail starting with my favourite little cafe on Abbott Kinney. We popped in early one weekday morning to grab some breakfast, before going down to Venice Beach. I am a sucker for cute little places, with open kitchens, bare wood and simple menus so this place was right up my street. I also love how the menu choices are so different to what we have in England. Everything seems just a little more exotic and grand rather than a plain old fry up, but I suppose it's just what we are used to. 
We ordered quickly, I chose a couple of varieties of toast and Si opted for the egg muffin, we grabbed some tea and joined everyone else in their morning routines in the sun outside.

So LA.
