CiCi's Cafe, Tarzana, CA

CiCi's Cafe Restaurant Review

: Bangkok native Sawarai “CiCi” Chanchaisri opened her eponymous Tarzana café in 2006, and the restaurant became a hit, primarily for breakfast. The space features a brown awning and dining room with art-lined canary yellow walls and wood tables. Cici’s menu is extensive, with many vegetarian options. Traditional breakfast fare includes omelets, eggs Benedict, waffles and french toast. Still, creative pancakes are the most popular dish: CoCo Green Tea; Strawberry Dutch; Corn Island, white corn-buttermilk pancakes topped with coconut and sugar-roasted sesame seeds. Lunch adds menu categories like Cozy Corner (pastas) and Fields of Green (salads), though you can order breakfast anytime.
