Breakfast near LAX

(Facebook repost & update)

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.

A Fantasy with Flapjacks & Friends

The Quenab (trying it out) along with The B (that’s Bernard) finally visited Jacks & Joe near U.S.C. campus.  Their hours aren’t listed on their site for whatever reason, but I found out it’s 7-2pm M-F and 8-2pm Sa & Su.  It’s a (F.O.) spot Marvin and I tried to explore in the past, but the lines were so long we gave up and left.  I’m not waiting 45 minuets for a table.  However, that tells you how good the food must be!


Nabachwa and Bernard arrived first.  I was coming from class so I gave her my order selection prior to my arrival.  You know, so once I walked through the door everyone would start running to my table dropping down plates, cause that’s how we roll.  I already foresaw it.  They strolled in still wearing their sunglasses and quickly everyone stopped.  People started whispering, “Who’s that?” “Is that them?”  A deep voice spoke out, “YEAH, it’s us” Bernard yelled out with his chin raised slowly lowering back to his place of comfort.  Waitresses started frantically running around gathering chairs for them to sit on at their selected table.  “Please, Please – your autograph!” yelled a customer.  “NOT NOW” from a stranger in the distance.  “Water, juice, please what is it that you wish to have?” the waitress squeaks out trying not to drop her pencil and pad.  “Now, Now – no need to fear.  It’s just Bernard and I and we come to eat with good cheer” Nabachwa shares trying to calm down the girl.  Bernard places his order.  He goes for the Dakine Combo.  Hawaiian French Toast with vanilla butter, a side of eggs and Portuguese sausage.  Nabachwa ordered the 3 stack of pancakes topped with fresh berries.  For myself, I went for The Ruby.  Three stack as well, but smothered in baked apples and pecan sauce with brown sugar butter topped with powered sugar.  Oh and bacon on the side, pushing my bill from 8 to 13 bucks.
