Breakfast before meetings in LA… I have walked by the Urth Cafe, a Santa Monica institution, many times, but it was always packed and I never had the courage to brave the crowds.
So on a Friday morning, early, I decided it was the time to head there for breakfast. You stand in line at the till and order before sitting down… and I only saw pastries… so I ordered the most savoury one I could get, with cheese and ham inside.
Good, not great. Then I saw people eating all sorts of egg dishes… dammit. My pastry did the job, especially as I got to sit outside on the terrace and take in some early morning sun… but I wish I had asked about the other dishes on the non-menu. Next time!
