cafe 50's in van nuys - surprisingly good!

Ok - a few years back the Mrs and I would go here during our courtship for casual food. At that time it was on a slow decline to the point where we didn't return.

I signed up for a 50% off coupon on a website for this establishment thinking 'I work close by - lunch will be ok for 1/2 price'

Well - I was in the neighborhood on Sunday morning and thought the Fam could use 1/2 off breakfast so we gave it a try.

I had french toast - good ol' regular egg bread cooked perfectly (3 full slices / so 6 pieces) It's amazing how so many restaurants can't even get regular french toast right. It seems restaurants these days have many she/she varieties of french toast available (cinnamon/freanch bread/etc.) but not egg bread french toast.

The Mrs had an Egg White Omlette made with onions/feta & spinach. This is her regular order at breakfast and you would be amazed the bad versions we get from many restaurants (uncooked onions/missing cheese/cooked w/ regular eggs). This too was made perfecly / grilled onions and good home fries.

The Tot had 1 egg kids breakfast. Good sausage (that's all I tasted).

The kiddo and I had a chocolate shake. One of the best shakes I have had, nice bittersweet chocolate taste.

The service was also perfect.

I also found out my 3 year old likes doo wop music.

All without the coupon was $25.

We will definately be back.
