    Florentine Benedict is one of a kind loved the Brie & dried tomatoes in it. The crunchy French toast is delicious, crunchy, not soggy nor sweet and they were kind enough to add bananas to my order.

    California is out of eggs because I just ate them all! Worth the wait at the door. Come hungry, choose rye bread for your toast. Mac & cheese delicious.

    OMG this place is great. I had the powerhouse and a dirty chai. Not only was it absolutely delicious and healthy, it helped me power through a very long and stressful day. Lots of healthy options.

    The Muscle Beach egg scramble at Blu Jam Cafe is one of the best breakfast platters I've had anywhere. Perfect energy boost in the morning, terrific service and dining experience!

    Not much of a sweets guy, so I skipped on the French toast. The California omelet is delicious and savory w/ a side of chicken sausage. The staff tenaciously refills water and coffee.

    Other than the wait this place is lit! Their all day breakfast menu is rich and satisfying! My fav is Florentine Benedict so far. The signature "crunchy french toast" is sinfully good!

    Can't go wrong with anything on the menu... For breakfast go for the French Toast or Egg dishs. For lunch or dinner the sandwichs are good and the Chicken Schnitzel. Also good coffee.

    I'm not a huge breakfast sweets person, so I won't be talking up french toast. However, I LOVE salmon. The LOXEX scramble w/ smoked salmon and brie is the business! And all of their benedicts rock!

    Crunchy French Toast, always! But, the barista and their foam designs are on point. Great, beyond exceptional food for the price point. Best brunch I have had across the country.

    Press Pot coffee worth the extra dough. Dark, rich & smooth. The roast to change every couple weeks. Currently a Columbian Dark - not at all bright abd acidic like other Central American coffees

    Best hash dish I've ever tasted. The beef tenderloin is very flavorful and the potatoes well seasoned. Good portion as well.

    Get the vanilla french toast as centerpiece to share with friends. Everyone will love it, and it gives you the chance to choose another appetizing item as your breakfast dish!

    Crunchy French toast! Cooked to the perfect crisp. Vanilla bean sauce was a great pairing with it. Highly recommend the French press coffee for sharing with a group!

    For a sweet, dessert breakfast, try the Crunchy French Toast. For a savory breakfast/brunch, Steak Hash is a must.
