Even if you live in Santa Monica, you might not know about breakfast and lunch spot Tiato. Located on the ground floor of an office building on Colorado Blvd at Harvard Street, it is a daily destination for people who work in the area. But, even if you don't work in this area, Tiato is worth a stop for breakfast or lunch.
While in Palm Desert for work, I asked my friend who lives there where to get breakfast before my drive back to Los Angeles. I heard her say, in passing, "I always stop for a flight of bacon when I am at the Palm Springs theater." I stopped her and asked, "a flight of bacon? Tell me more!"
The next morning as I was about to head back to the city, I took a little detour to go through Palm Springs to pick up my breakfast. Open everyday, except Tuesday, Cheeky's is a popular spot on North Palm Canyon Drive that serves breakfast all day (8am - 2pm).
On a recent morning, I had a breakfast meeting and was looking for somewhere to meet other than the typical coffee chain. We met at Greenleaf Gourmet Chopshop in Century City. Greenleaf is a great spot to grab a healthy lunch (specialty salads and sandwiches or make your own salad) but you can also stop by for a healthy and tasty breakfast.
