Just thought that this might be a good place to note that this excellent little cafe in El Segundo is closing this Monday. Having just discovered this gem last week (Center St. near Mariposa), we're pretty dismayed that John's moving on, though he's possibly opening another place in a few months (Hawthorne was mentioned - El Segundo's rents are not what they used to be).
If you're in the neighborhood, you might want to drop by for breakfast or lunch... he's been closing by 2pm most days. He's got an all-you-can eat dish every day; last Monday it was meatloaf, and it was terrific... and draft beer is $1.
