Strawberry cake - 2+

J's comment > reminiscent of the Sprinkles strawberry cupcake I had in NYC that I was so looking forward to getting again at the LA location on this trip (more later); lovely strawberry flavor, moist but in the dense side; loved the little crisp strawberry balls mixed into the frosting that was then smoothed between each cake layer

Chicken Florentine Crepe: Marinated chicken, sauteed spinach, parmesan cream & hollandaise - 2

J's comment > passable flavors; crepe on the mushy side though, and chicken dry

Smoked salmon breakfast stack w two potato pancakes topped w smoked salmon, two poached eggs w creme fraiche and fresh dill - 2

J's comment > Smoked salmon flavor almost bland, potato pancake overcooked

Country Breakfast: Three eggs any style, two buttermilk pancakes topped w strawberries and bananas w chicken-apple sausage - 1

J's comment > overcooked, tough, bland, miserable excuse of a pancake; sausage heavy and forgettable; eggs were NOT over hard as requested, and egg yolks broke

Latte - 2

J's comment > easy to drink, not too bitter

Razzle Dazzle smoothie: Rasperries, strawberries & mango - 2

J's comment > just got the strawberry, neither of the other advertised flavors
