Located in the valley-Tarzana, CA on Ventura Blvd, this breakfast/brunch/lunch spot is always crackin’. ESPECIALLY on Sundays for brunch. As you can see from the picture above, there is usually always a wait for brunch on the weekends. Similar to “The Griddle” in Hollywood, Cici’s has huge portions and a ginormous menu. There is pages and pages of sweet and savory breakfast/lunch dishes to choose from, and everything is amazing on the menu. I LOVE this place!
RED VELVET PANCAKES
CICI’S STRAWBERRY FRENCH TOAST
MAMA BEA OMELET
MAMA BEA OMELET
If you usually have a sweet tooth for breakfast, this place is perfect for pancakes, waffles, french toast or crepes. If you like eggs for breakfast, this place has incredible omelets, egg scrambles or eggs benedict. The menu is a little overwhelming because there is such a variety and so much to choose from, but it has something for everyone. They have a great lunch menu as well with salads, burgers, sandwiches and more.
MY PERSONAL FAVORITES ARE:
*Sugar & Cream*-
- The Wacky Waffle. (Belgian waffle with Oreos, bananas, ice cream and whipped cream drizzled with chocolate syrup) Wacky Pancakes are bomb too!
- Red Velvet Pancakes!!! (Picture above. You can choose from chocolate or strawberry velvet…bomb!)
- If you like peanut butter, bananas and chocolate, The Sky Diver Pancakes, or Annie’s French Toast is good too 🙂
- Cici’s Strawberry French Toast– w/ cinnamon & sugar. Classic french toast that is fluffy and perfect. It’s simple and the strawberries make the perfect addition.
*Salt & Pepper*-
CiCi Scramble: Turkey sun dried tomato sausage, spinach, mushrooms, garlic, & mozzerella cheese (picture above)
Mama Bea Omelet: Egg whites, veggie sausage, spinach, mushrooms, garlic, fresh jalepeno, tomatillo sauce, & mozzerella cheese (picture above)
It’s a Florentine: 2 poached eggs with sauteed spinach & turkey bacon on an English muffin topped with homemade hollandaise sauce- (I add avacado!)
I usually can’t decide whether I feel like something sweet or salty for brunch, so I always order something sweet and something salty and share with a friend 🙂
