Popular shooting location and celeb hangout, this tasty breakfast and lunch hotspot combines a Hamptons-style with an LA vibe.

Deliciously fresh and generally healthy fare makes this West Hollywood joint a fan favorite. Expect a wait especially on a sunny weekend morning!

IN THE MIX: Pancake review with special guest Jessica Luza – This weekend I had the honor of actress Jessica Luza (who some of you may know from “The Lost & Found Family,” and most recently from her guest starring role on “House”) join me as a reviewer for Ma’amCakes.

Jessica and I visited the infamous - and I say infamous based on the line in the photo above - Toast Bakery Cafe on 3rd St and Harper Ave in Los Angeles, CA. Toast typically is this crowded partly because it has been featured in TV shows such as “Rachel Zoe,”The Hills,” “Entourage,” “Rachel Ray,” and even the movie “No Strings Attached.” Or perhaps Toast is typically this crowded because of its fantastic food - especially, their pancakes!

When Jessica and I were deciding on pancakes, I immediately went with the Cinnamon Walnut Pancakes, while Jessica was debating between the Tri-Berry Pancakes and the Multigrain Pancakes - which happen to be Toast’s most popular pancake. “I definitely appreciate all their pancake options,” says Jessica, “I’ve been here a hundred times, but never even thought about checking their pancake menu!” Enter, Ma’amCakes!

After the waiter came and went several times, we finally decided on the Cinnamon Walnut Pancakes, and the Tri-Berry Pancakes. Good. Choices.

First of all, as Jessica and I were not starving, one of the main pros of our order was we had the option of choosing one specialty, or one Buttermilk, pancake for $5.99, as opposed to a full order of three pancakes. Keep in mind, though, this option is only included inside the restaurant, and not in Toast’s online menu.

The Cinnamon Walnut Pancake, a specialty pancake I’ve never had, was a perfect blend of cinnamon, walnut, and pancake fluff. The pancake was lite, not greasy, and tasted just as fresh in the first bite as the last. The Cinnamon Walnut Pancake was perfectly topped with extra fresh bananas - they couldn’t have picked a more appropriate topping. This dish was wonderfully tasty and creative.

Jessica’s Tri-Berry Pancake was a beautiful assortment of pancake, fruits, and pecans - but did it taste as good as it looked? “Wow, these are great. They’re definitely lite and airy, and actually taste healthy - but wait, is that even possible? I mean, they’re pancakes!” They probably tasted lite and airy (as did mine) due to the fact they weren’t first run through a butter churn - as many pancakes are - before placed in front of us.

Jessica’s only note was “I’d actually prefer the fruit inside the pancake, only because it would make it less dry, juicier, and more flavorful.” When taking a bite of Jessica’s dish, I actually agreed with her. As per my review from Jinky’s Cafe, perhaps Toast should adapt the option of where to place the toppings. But in my dish, however, I did prefer the bananas on top only because the walnuts were already embedded in the pancake. While the Tri-Berry Pancakes look beautiful, at the end of the day, it’s all about how they taste! Ma’amCakes’ motto right there.

When asking Jessica which specialty pancake she’ll get next time, she replied “definitely the Banana Chocolate Chip.” All and all, while the restaurant is called Toast, fortunately for the pancakes, they’re lacking the butter!

Thank you so much Jessica, for being a part of Presidents’ Day Brunch with Ma’amCakes!

Don't let the host make you leave – Beyond the rude front service the food is great but the manager does not care how the host gave us rude treatment and said that if you do not like the way the host speak to you go some where else.

A Nice Trendy Westside Eatery! I Will Be Back! – The location is Great! The food was decent. The service was mediocore at best. After we were seated, the server assistant immediately asked if we wanted to order beverages. That's where the good service pretty much ended. After about 10 minutes, unable to secure even a modicum of attention from the staff, I finally broke down and asked a ramdom employee where my server was. He was in fact our server. He was extremely dismissive and said he'd be with us shortly. Evidently, he was an aspiting actor, in character to play a snobby waiter at a trendy westside restaurant. He should have no problem landing the part! Eventually, he took our orders and our dishes arrived shortly. The soft scrambled eggs I ordered were hard, so I politely asked my server if he could possibly request another order of soft scrambled eggs to which he replied, he would try. Try? Wow, what chance did I have? The second order was also hard scrambled. I was perplexed as to how the chef was unable to master the complexity of soft scrambled eggs aftter two tries. Hint: try serving them before they starts to brown. All of the other food was really good. Actually, that was a masterful use of understatement and unfair, the waffle with strawberries and bananas was the BEST I've ever had! Overall, it was a nice pleasant experience for both myself and my date; I don't go there for the service anyways!

Yummy yummy yum...im talking about the staff – A friend's brother brought me here for brunch one lazy Sunday and I proceeded to come back for the next four days, bringing a different friend each time. I am completely hooked on their salads, steak sandwich, granola & fruit ....but then again, I haven't tried a single thing on the menu that wasn't orgasmically delicious. Speaking of orgasmic...their staff is hands down one of the best-looking groups in LA and so friendly. And the vibe of the place is to die for. At night it's even candlelit! Come here and bring a friend...you may have to wait a little bit, but it's worth it!

one last thing...i love the cupcakes...so fresh so yummy

good food, bad service – sunday 1pm at toast is definitely crowded, so we were prepared for the 20 minute wait for the 3 of us. we were seated at a sofa which was kind of hard to eat, so we asked if we could switch to a table. the waitress pointed at a corner table for 2 and said we can move there. ... obviously we couldn't fit the 3 of us there and she was clearly just trying to get us to shut up. oh well. the waiter seemed impatient and unfriendly. actually he seemed a little reluctant to serve/talk to us at all.

on the bright side, food was good though, sweet potato fries were nice. cobb salad has a nice dressing, but the bad service left us in no appetite for desserts.

un eco friendly and rude – food and service was okay, then i asked the manager if he would consider alternatives for plastic containers for take out and he said it was too expensive!!!! give me a break! you would charge 14 dollars for a sandwich but not pay a extra nickle for paper packaging, in my opinion speak with your dollars and refuse to eat there unless they go more eco friendly. tell all your friends, lets ban plastic in LA.
