Millie’s Cafe in L.A. is delicious, so go there »
I’m going to keep this review short and sweet. Basically, all you need to know is that I loved my breakfast and I have amazing taste.
I went to LA last fall to see one of my fave bands, Jenny and Johnny.* Being human and everything, I had to eat. So, after a night at the Hollywood Palladium and some elegant debauchery at Bar Marmont, my friend Christina and I headed to Millie’s Cafe in Silverlake.
I want to go back to L.A. simply to eat there again. They infuse the water with mint! The menu is enormous! Omnis and vegans can go there alike! And it’s divey, totally my kinda place. Two words: soy cheese.
Here’s what I had:
the No Huevos Rancheros. I still think about it. Tofu, soy cheese, guacamole, black beans and a pile of vegetables atop corn tortillas. Amazing! You owe it to yourself to go there. For the record, though I may be the most hated vegan on the internet for saying this, I went to Real Food Daily for dinner that night and wished I was eating at Millie’s. I’m not going to say it’s because my food was bland. Or that it didn’t have
any enough salt. I’m just going to take the high road and not say those things.
