Brunch with the Family
I have been so excited about sharing these photos with you! These are from the restaurant where Andrew and Amy took us for Breakfast/Lunch the last morning we were in L.A. It’s on Ventura Blvd, in the San Fernando Valley (Tarzana) and it’s called CiCi’s Cafe. If you’re ever in the area, you MUST try it.
On Monday morning we drove down to A and A’s apartment from Santa Clarita and Kevin still hadn’t decided when he was going to fly home to Omaha. After looking at some airline ticket prices and discussing logistics about how to get around if he stayed and how to get to the airport with Amy and Andrew working, he decided to ride back to Phoenix with us and fly out of the PHX airport the next day. It saved him about $100 and we got to have a few more hours with him, which was great for us.
After Kevin booked his flight for the next day we loaded up and drove a short distance to one of Andrew’s favorite places. He said that he orders from there a lot for work as well and I can see why. Everything that I saw and tasted looked delicious and their menu is HUGE! It would take years to get thru everything on the menu unless you ate their every day, which would not be hard to do.
The restaurant itself is fairly unassuming. It’s located in a strip mall so you’d never know it was so appetizing unless someone took you there. This is the basic dining room below. They definitely need to expand because Andrew says they’re always busy.
So…photos from top to bottom – here are 3 of the gorgeous and delicious meals:
- Andrew’s Steak Salad
- Terry’s Banana Macadamia Nut Pancakes (not low carb!)
- My sandwich, which is seem to recall had turkey, swiss cheese, artichoke hearts and arugala (and maybe more) plus sweet potato french fries. MMMMMM!!
Don’t they all look amazing? Kevin had some kind of an egg scramble which really doesn’t photograph too well, so you don’t need to see it here.
Sadly, Amy ordered some food, but then didn’t feel good enough to stay and eat with us. So we said goodbye to her there so she could go home, rest and try to feel better before going to work. I’m happy to report that she has gone to the doctor since then and they’re trying to figure why she hasn’t been feeling well for a while. We love her and were sad that she couldn’t stay and eat with us. We hope that they figure it out soon.
