I've had more than one really good breakfast at Jumpin' Java in Studio City east of Laurel Canyon.
The pancakes are all terrific, and there's a good variety of them, from rustic multi-grain to classic fluffies. The eggs are terrific, the coffee delicious, and the atmosphere is very cute and casual.
The food is very fresh and creative. My favorite dish there is the scrambled eggs with merguez (??) sausage, which is spicy and dense and dry and the perfect foil for creamy eggs.
It's always busy, and the service is spotty, but overall it's highly recommended.
