Café de Olla
The seven year-old Cafe de Olla in Burbank is named for the Mexican coffee drink, which is prepared in a clay pot with cinnamon, piloncillo, and sometimes other spices. Their version is as good as you might imagine, a strong brew that tingles with warming spices, an excellent early morning treat. They also make an expansive selection of breakfast food, including Mexican and Mexican-American essentials like Huevos Divorciados, Nopalitos con Huevo, breakfast burritos, and four different varieties of chilaquiles. But the menu doesn’t stop there—they also have all the diner classics, pancakes, omelettes, and egg sandwiches, and about a dozen permutations of French toast which range from sugary sweet to deeply decadent.
