I *heart* Kings Road Cafe <3 <3 <3
This is place was always packed every morning with a variety of people spilling out onto the sidewalk on both the cafe/takeout side and the sit down side. Got me thinking, I need to try this place.

Stopped by one day for coffee and a take out breakfast. The lattes are perfection. whoever is operating that machine knows his espresso and his steamed milk. Got the breakfast panini sandwich, they forgot to um..panini press the sandwich. it was still good though. Hearty portions.
Trip 2, coffee and a blueberry muffin. Dad, who is extra picky about his mochas gives this place his hard to attain stamp of approval. he had a pastry and that was a hit too.
Trip 3, coffee and blueberry pancakes to go. HOLY SCHNIKES! rarely do i find pancakes life changing but these had plump juicy berries dotted all over the dinner plate sized pancake (you get three of those by the way) and was served with lemon butter and maple syrup. I almost didn't make it to work that day. I almost wanted to pull the car over and eat them right away.
Needless to say, this is now at the top of my list for brunch. They do a good breakfast burrito and breakfast croissant too. Gotta try their dinner menu. heard they have live music on Wednesday nights.
There are vegetarian options on the menu.
The only bad thing i've had there was their chai tea. I suspect it has more to do with my lack of appreciate for chai tea, i like mine really sweet and creamy. Theres is heavy spiced, unsweeatened with no cream.
all in all, i hope this place NEVER closes.
Pros: healthy food options, great coffee, laid back
Cons: crowded, bustling and loud, parking sucks
