Went to a great new place for breakfast today called Emle's. It is on Reseda north of Nordhoff and south of Plummer, across the street from Mandarin Deli (also a favorite in the area). Anyway Emle's is a transplant from Carmel, where they have had a place since 1955. They opened up down here 5 weeks ago because their kids go to CSUN. The owner, Nick, is very friendly. The atmosphere is relaxing with classical music piped in. The food and prices are remarkable. I had a spanish omelette and side of perfectly cooked bacon (right between chewy and crispy). The omellette was about $7. Lunche menu looks great with a variety of dishes all around $7. They also have early bird dinners between 4 pm and 6 pm at $10.00 and the menu is impressive. All in all, an unusually good place for the North Valley, which tends to be chain central.
