Those Pink & White stripes on Western Ave.

What I absolutely love about M’Dear’s Bakery & Bistro is the fact they place a napkin over your flatware – LOVE!  Can we all do this?  I got hip to this place years ago as an auction gift certificate item.  There are two locations, 7717 S. Western Ave. – Los Angeles and 2450 Carson St. – Lakewood.  I recently took my buddy the other day.  It was his first time.


“Well, well, well, she has a new fella with her,” someone mentioned.

Usually I’m with The Eagle or as the Dynamic Delectable Delight Duo.

(J) ordered steak and eggs with a side of grits AND french toast lol.  I just went with a waffle and bacon and eggs on the side.  Sometimes I add fruit, other times I don’t.

“Are you sure you don’t want any coffee or tea while you wait?” two waitresses asked.

The customer service is always wonderful here.  (J) happened to be running late hence them questioning me.  “No, I’m good, but thanks.” I replied and decided to use the time to get some calls in.

Those pink & white stripes on Western Ave. is a (B.O.) restaurant topped with a black awning to block the sun and rain.  Two rooms to dine in for breakfast, lunch or dinner with one in the front and the larger positioned in the back towards the restrooms.  Brown wooden padded chairs fill the space, accented with general framed art along the peach painted walls.  You’ll come a cross a few wobbly tables topped with a printed cloth and weighted glass, pre-set with all your basic condiments.  However, do you know what is interesting?  I’ve never tried any of their desserts!  Shocking right?  I guess because I’m usually their in the mornings for breakfast with no thought of ordering dessert due to my recent sugar rush of pancakes topped with syrup.  Maybe next time!
