They stipulated: Their specialty is the "plachinta, a Romanian specialty that takes a warm flat bread and wraps it around cheeses, greens, olives, scallions, or a variety of other ingredients. The result is a tasty tortilla-like creation that is great all on its own or as the base for other dishes."

What we ordered: Banana pecan bread pudding ($3), sweet potato hash with egg whites ($8), breakfast sandwich with bacon ($8), flourless chocolate cake ($3)

Lemon Poppy

High point:  The homemade pastry selection is strong. I didn't mean to eat all of that bread pudding so soon after breakfast, but I did.

Lemon Poppy

Low point:  Limited breakfast meat option -- bacon (or turkey bacon) only.

Lemon Poppy

Overall impression: Inventive breakfast choices, great baked goods options, and also appreciated the wall art, which celebrated the Los Angeles River via parodies of old movie posters.

Lemon Poppy

Will we return: Absolutely!
