For a quick lunch, check out Recess Eatery in Glendale. It's an adorable little place with a mini bakery of course to add to the cuteness! They have a great selection of sandwiches, wraps and salads. You can also B.Y.O.B and there's no corkage fee! I had the Pig Headed sandwich: prosciutto, arugula, fresh mozzarella, oil and vinegar. We also ordered the Benny's On Brand, basically eggs benedict, and an omelette.

What better way to eat comfort food than in the comfort of a home. This converted old hollywood house built in 1908 is now an adorable restaurant that serves nothing but comfort food. I went there for weekend brunch but I can't wait to go back for dinner. For starters, they bring out homemade banana bread. I know, brilliant. For brunch I had their breakfast pasta: rotelli, turkey sausage, eggs, mushrooms, parsley, garlic, mozzarella & olive oil. Andy had the veggie breakfast burrito. We finished it off with warm, sticky cinnamon buns. Highly recommended!

No, not 31 Flavors, 21 Choices...It's much better. It's like Coldstone where you can choose what you'd like to put in your ice cream, but it's frozen yogurt or sorbet and they have way more than 21 mix-ins! This cheerful little yogurt shop always has a line around the corner. The people who work there are patient and friendly, so don't feel like you can't take your time figuring out what to put in your creation. And if you don't like it, they'll make you a new one! My go-to creation is vanilla yogurt with cookie dough, circus animal crackers and cheesecake bites. But during that special time of year, GIRL SCOUT COOKIE TIME, you better believe they have those to put in there too! If the choices are too overwhelming for you, they have a menu that changes daily of suggested flavors created by previous customers.
