Blu Jam Cafe’s Blueberry Pancakes taste like Mom’s homemade pancakes: fluffy, fresh, and refreshing. I definitely recommend this jamming brunch spot – and promise you won’t feel blue after!
The wait for this brunch location is long but time can go by quick by people watching and hanging out at the nearby stores. I promise the anticipation will be worth your tastebuds.
The Best Breakfast In L.A. - Period. – L.A. is a city with little culture and generally bad dining. On the other hand, Blue Jam easily has the very best breakfast in L.A. and a day time menu that is wide, varied and prepared with great skill, and impecable taste. The service is also fantastic, and a major reason why I return so often. The espresso coffee is also one of the finest tasting in L.A. - no bitterness. You would be an idiot to suggest *any* place could beat these guys in the mornings. Trust me - make sure you check them out.
Blue gem – Great menu ,very eclectic and for me being European I found a lot of dishes that I grew up with .I had Stuffed pepper with ground beef and home made tomato sauce(It was amazing and brought me back to my child hood) and on my next visit i had poached eggs on a croissant with ham and bacon,very good.Music is great.The staff very attentive and happy.I will be back for more.
Great Breakfast All Day!!! – Blu Jam Cafe is a great little cafe located in the heart of the Melrose shopping district. They serve breakfast all day, and if you're an early bird and get there before 11a.m. M-F the entire breakfast menu is only $6.95...cant beat that! They also have an awesome lunch menu and the daily specials are equally impressive! The owner prides himself in all of his food, especially his homemade soups. They have a different soup every other day...a lot of the time vegan, always organic. So if your looking for a new breakfast/lunch spot, you should definetely stop by and check this place out. The atmosphere is cozy yet upbeat, the staff is friendly and very personable and the food is incredibly addicting! I would reccomend the Breakfast Quesadilla or the Eggwich...yum!
A Great Place! – Best selection and quality of breakfast choices in Los Angeles. Four or five types of benedict dishes alone! Really flavorful organic coffees and lattes. Also has a great ambience and location in the heart of Melrose Ave.-terrific for people watching and experiencing the eclectic mix that is Los Angeles. I also had an Angus Burger with blue cheese-off the hook! Highly recommend this place...
great breakfast and soups – Cool space and great menu.It was really hard for me to choose,the pancakes and crepes looked so good on the next table so i ordered them.Yammy!!!Coffee is organic and very tasteful .They have also nice selection of loose organic teas.I will be back and get those eggs benedict that i saw passing by.Great vibe.
PS: breakfast served all day!!
Best service, fresh food, people watching, Kamil is the best – This is the best restaurant in town! Everything is great. The soups are to die for and many of them are vegan, but you'd never guess. The food is very fresh and tasty. The coffee is always good. I love going to Blu Jam on the weekends for brunch. Bring your own champagne and make your own mimosas. It won't cost you anything but the price of the oj. You can also bring your own beer and wine without any hassle. If anything, they encourage it. The atmosphere is very relaxing and I have never felt rushed. The staff is amazing and very friendly. The owner, Kamil, has got to be the coolest guy around. He remembers everyone's names and is genuinely happy to see you. He also really cares about how you feel about the food. He's very passionate about what he does and makes sure you enjoy yourself. I wish all places were like this place.
great everything – the best breakfast place i found in LA, GREAT SERVICE, GREAT FOOD , WHAT DO YOU ASK FOR MORE.
I like the european touch.
Friday dinner is also great ,
Rare LA find - great food AND service – I stumbled upon Blu Jam a few months ago and have quickly become a regular. I've only eaten lunch once but I loved what I have and so did my dining companions. My favorite is Friday night dinner. Since the menu changes every week, there is always something new to try. Everyone I bring there walks out a fan - not only of the food but the friendly service. Kamil is an amazing host and chef. The servers remember your name and are always very upbeat and happy.
The Cafe In L.A.! – Great food and an inviting atmosphere! It all flows from the top and Kamil, the owner, knows how to provide an all-around excellent dining experience from a unique and tantalizing menu to connecting personally with his customers. The wait staff follows his lead and provides a high level of friendly customer service. The menu offers a nice range of choices for breakfast and lunch including lemon crepes, which will brighten anyone?s day, along with some new twists on old breakfast standards. If you want a classic breakfast, that's available as well, but don't miss out on the blueberry pancakes or the cornflake crusted French toast special!
If you love soup (and I mean really love soup), then there is no better place! Kamil makes soups which will leave you begging for more including a selection of fantastic vegetarian/vegan soups which have the power to satisfy any carnivore! Don't panic meat eaters, there's an abundance of meat, chicken and fish dishes that won't disappoint.
Blujam is a place that rewards return customers with a sense of community, engaging conversations, fun people watching along Melrose and above all, excellent food at a fair price. After living 12 years in San Francisco, two years in Barcelona, and a summer in Moscow, I was desperate to find a quality cafe when I moved to Los Angeles - I found it!
Great Birthday Party Place – A friend and I had a joint b-day party here a couple of months ago. About 120 people attended in total and we couldn't have asked for more. Since we were a big group, we had the place to ourselves - hired a DJ, decorated and had an open bar (we BOBed). Finger food was passed around during the cocktail hour and then dinner was sit down (65 people ate). Guests had a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. Kamil was incredibly helpful and made everything amazingly easy to coordinate. The party was perfect from start to finish and all of the guests raved about the food!! I would highly recommend Blu Jam for a private party - or even lunch or dinner (I go there regularly). Kamil and his staff were fantastic, the layout of the restaurant is perfect for a group party and it was truly a great value for the quality of the food and service that was received! Thomas
