Brunch in Silverlake

I mentioned that we did a little brunchy brunch on Saturday for this lady’s big 25.  Brunching is my absolute favorite activity of all time.  If I had to choose between going to brunch or winning the lottery…well, let’s just say I’d have to think about it for a solid minute.

So we went to Cafe Stella in Silverlake.  Can I just say that it takes us 4 freeways to get to Silverlake and I live like 10 mins away?  Why is this crazy town so crazy?  Who designed these freeway systems and street maps?  Anyway, I had the lemon ricotta pancakes with a side of breakfast potatoes.  If you haven’t had ricotta in your pancakes yet, you haven’t lived.  Go order/make some ricotta pancakes immediately.  They were little pillows of heaven.  Kyle had the salmon eggs benedict but who knows what those tasted like because he didn’t offer me any…….

The patio is my favorite part – it’s quintessential Parisian cafe.  So lovely and chic.  It was a perfect place to spend the morning on such a warm and beautiful day.  PS – their coffee and lattes come straight from Intelligentsia next door, so that right there is a win-win situation.
