Flying in or out of Los Angeles? Well, the Eagle got me hip to this spot near the airport called The Coffee Company. I tried their Waffle of which was fine, but soon learned about their french toast of which I had to try. However, for some reason when we returned, I forgot to get the french toast and ordered the waffle <frustrated sigh>. Every time I walk out of this place and look over to another persons plate I say to myself, “DAGGIT, I was suppose to try the french toast this time!” And this is when (J) would say, “LOSER” and as I would say, “I SUCK”.
The Coffee Company serves breakfast, lunch and dinner just so you know. A nice spot! I absolutely love the hanging flower pots out front. Reminds me of my mother. A great spot to hit up when taking someone to or arriving from the airport and in need of some good food. As always the customer service is great, food arrives quickly and the prices are reasonable.
“OMG it’s them!”
Oh how I would love arriving to work with someone having the wonderful nerve to bring a cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes <huge happy sigh>. I’ve only seemed to have tried their carrot cake and WOW it is FREAKING AMAZING!!! A little too much icing for me, but still delicious. Funny, it’s the only flavor people seem to have brought in, unless I missed something. Please do try one!
They’ve been on my ‘Need To Eat It’ list. Super cute, moist, tasty and come in four sizes, Bundtinis (mini bite-size), Bundtlets (miniature) and Bundts (regular sizes in 8 & 10″).
“Oh my gosh, who brought in another, Nothing Bundt Cake cake?” I yelled in the office.
It was around the time of my New Years (my birthday). (T) decided to take me to The Griddle Cafe, a place located in Hollywood that I’ve been to before, but not in a very, very long time. We drove separately.
“Are you there yet?” I asked over the phone.
“I’m here!” she responded with great enthusiasm.
I pulled up, lucky enough to find street parking around the corner. The line was long as usual. Some talked on the phone, while others wandered off constantly running back to check-in for their table.
“Have you called us yet?” We too were those people who wondered off.
I just don’t understand. I mean, I just really don’t. I’ve gone to so many breakfast places here in Vegas and none of them seem capable of offering something painfully delicious. Clearly I am on the wrong road of breakfast foods. <sigh> I just thought, besides going to the over priced spots, I could find that fun, mom and pop spot that all the locals know about and the food is always good. WELL, haven’t found it…which is very sad.
(M) wanted to go Babystacks, a place that was on my foodie list. Here’s the deal, I already went, but forgot lol. (S) and I went two months ago and it was just ok. I was not impressed with anything and clearly the memory of the establishment was a blur.
We walk towards the building. “I’m so excited, can’t wait to try the french toast” I share with (S).
She agrees with a huge smile and begins listing her pancake options.
“Oh, she’s here!” someone shares across the table.
We all do it, make breakfast at home. Some meals turn out great, while others…complete fail. Sometimes there’s time to cook, other times not. Regardless of your reasoning with seasoning <chuckle>, here’s a Run-down of some Random Rations at my Residence.
Seasoned pasta with spinach and red sauce topped with an egg and sprinkled with pepper and cheddar cheese.
Oatmeal is great for lowering cholesterol. I prefer mine with brown sugar, almond milk and any dried or fresh fruit available. This bowl contains raisins 🙂
